Toastmaster : Frank Hayes
Since his first filksing in Chicago in 1979, Frank Hayes has forgotten
more songs than most filkers will ever know. He's also written a few
that some people think are unforgettable, including "Little Fuzzy
Animals," "The Grandfather Clock" and "S-100." He has won
for "Never Set the Cat on Fire" (2005), "When I Was a Boy" (1998),
"Like a Lamb to the Slaughter" (1994) and "Twelve Years at Worldcon"
(before you were born). NASA used his voice to wake up space-shuttle
astronauts -- twice. Many years ago, he lent his name to
"Frank Hayes Disease,"
and he would like it returned one of these days, please.
