Lynne Thigpen, 1948-2003

You probably know her best as the chief on Carmen Sandiego.. and yeah, ok, I also remember her from All My Children. But I bet you didn't know Lynne Thigpen also played one of the coolest movie roles ever: she was the DJ in "The Warriors"!

She was also a major figure as a theater actress, and when I was little I saw her in this very short-lived broadway musical named "But Never Jam Today".

By the way, her scenes in The Warriors were filmed at WHBI 105.9 FM, the NY station legendary for hosting the first Hip-Hop radio shows ever: Mr. Magic, Jerry Bloodrock, The World Famous Supreme Team, The Awesome Two, etc.
