"NOW that I'm back, forget about the other chicks. You won't miss 'em," vows hip-hop veteran Eve on one of the tougher-minded tracks from "Lip Lock. " Confidence becomes the rapper. Hitting stores and download sites today, this return to music has been only 11 years in the making and waiting (and then remaking) from the Philly-formed star who also answers to the name Eve Jihan Jeffers. That's like three career lifetimes in music, she agreed. Which raises the question: Do they still need her, will anyone still love her, when she's 34?

LINWOOD, N.J. - There's "Breaking News" on the website of James M. Kauffman, board-certified endocrinologist, but it is not the news all of Linwood seems to be expecting. "Now accepting Tricare. New patients welcome," according to the site. One year after his wife, Shore radio personality and veterans advocate April Kauffman, 47, was found shot to death in the bedroom of their home in this leafy community just over the bridge from Margate - a year after the prosecutor at the time confidently suggested the case would be solved - there has been no arrest, no breaking news.

If nuns can fly, can a rabbi be a talk-show host? WWDB-AM (860) radio is betting that Richard Address, senior clergy at Cherry Hill's M'Kor Shalom, has the chops to attract a coveted audience: baby boomers. And not just the Jewish ones. (Address goes by Richard on the program.) Boomer Generation Radio , which debuted in February, aims to address the unique concerns of the 76 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964. The first wave is already careening through their mid-60s, joining Medicare, maybe applying for Social Security - all the while caring for their children, possibly looking after grandchildren, and, more often than not, taking care of an elderly parent.

NOBODY KNOWS better what listeners like (and dislike) about local radio than Tom Kelly, director of Kelly Music Research. The Havertown-based operation offers programming counsel to B101 and WXTU locally, plus three dozen more stations nationwide. Now, in his separate gig as managing director of iRadioPhilly, Kelly is doing more to fix what's broken, bruised or missing in action on our FM and AM radio dials than anyone else in the business, essentially (and ironically) by making an end run around the broadcasting world.

"I've been doing a little analyst work down here," said Battie, who lives in Orlando. "Matt Guokas is sick so Rich Adubato is coming down from radio for TV and I'm going to be filling in for Richie on the radio. " Sixers coach Doug Collins said last season that he would love to have Battie on his coaching staff.

In an effort to bring one of the nation's most venerable high school radio stations up to 21st-century standards, the Kal and Lucille Rudman Foundation has donated $10,000 to Haverford High School's WHHS (99.9 FM). WHHS, which began broadcasting in 1949 and claims to be the nation's first high school station, is in the process of renewing its FCC registration, which requires an updated system. The station's current equipment does not have the power or digital capacity needed to run a modern studio.
