Baby Face was such a pest.Reporters in a Raleigh newsroom in 1984 took his clockwork calls, heard his baby voice, and fibbed about sending someone out to cover his "news" event. We made no such plans that year.No one took him seriously. He was tagged a community nut forever trolling for media attention. Who was this guy anyway? Who is this Christian? Who goes around making a big deal about being a Christian anyway? A newsroom was certainly no place for such talk!We religiously covered the mandatory cycle of North Carolina stories: Jesse Helms wins Senate seat again; tobacco farmers urge higher price supports; Dean Smith's Tar Heels advance to Final Four.

It's a little after 11 p.m. on a recent Saturday night at the Crown, a small Station North bar and live entertainment venue that opened in June. "People Just Love to Play with Words," a terrific Men at Work song from 1981, plays over the sound system as a young, diverse crowd of roughly 45 mingles with cocktails and cheap cans of beer in hand. Against the striking red walls are leather couches, where friends are cuddled up and make-out sessions may or may not happen later. For a second, the dingy room feels like it could use a renovation - until you realize that would probably ruin it. Not long after, Chase O'Hara, currently of the Baltimore duo Chiffon, takes center stage as Winks, and begins playing sensually slinky R&B on a keyboard.
