FERRIDAY, La. -- Frankie Lewis Terrell puts down her bottle of whiskey, closes the window to her drive-through liquor store and walks next door to begin the tour of 712 Eighth Ave., the family home that became a museum.Pictures of first cousin Mickey Gilley sit atop a table. The birthing quilt of the first cousin Jimmy Swaggart lies on the very bed where, Frankie claims, the televangelist was "conceived in sin." And then there is the kitsch of big brother Killer: the golf clubs from O.J. Simpson, the Killer's rifles, his baby shoes, and, preserved for posterior uh, posterity: the Killer's potty-training toilet.

It's not easy to get an interview with Jerry Lee Lewis these days. It's not that he's getting tired of rock and roll and piano-pounding; after all, he performed in New York for the first time in a decade Friday and Saturday and will perform in Baltimore Thursday. It's that he's tired of reliving old scandals."Jerry basically says to me, 'I would do interviews every day all day long if people would treat me nice and write good things rather than going back to when my son died or a wife OD'd or I married my third cousin,' " said his sixth wife, Kerrie.

Deanna Bogart is not your typical boogie-woogie piano player.For one thing, she's young -- at 33, barely half the age of the best-known boogie-woogie blues players. For another, she plays saxophone in addition to (and almost as well as) boogie-woogie piano.But what most sets her apart from others in her field is simply the way she plays. For where other pianists look at boogie as an effective but stylistically limited approach to the blues, Bogart sees only opportunities."When I do traditional boogie woogie, I do it very untraditionally," she says, speaking over the phone from a tour stop in Ocean City.

Today's impossible challenge, ladies and gentlemen, pits this standard Catonsville row home, the one with the oh-so-narrow-minded staircase, against this 700-pound, 6-foot-long, Baldwin grand piano.On our left we have the row home's prospective tenant, Adam Mahonske, a cheerful piano teacher at the Baltimore School for the Arts. He wants to move his piano, not into the front room of the row house -- for that would be a little too easy -- but upstairs where he will be able to operate a cheerful little studio.
