Original cast members as seen in this video were baby boomers Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Laraine Newman, and Garrett Morris, the "old man" of the group.

Baby boomer Anita Hamilton has always been interested in the "real people" stories behind the characters that create and inhabit the world of music, books, movies, television shows, current events, history, etc. A lifelong love of research (ok, nosiness) and writing, combined with a loving and supportive family and 3 mini-dachshund minions, keeps her busy.
