Just curious if any f you had a chance to listen to Baltimore Net Radio's ALL DAY Doris Day Birthday celebration yesterday? We had some great interviews with the script supervisor for Doris's 1955 film LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME and also on the '62 Movie JUMBO in which Doris starred - also interviewed one of Doris's former assistants from the mid '60s...Anne Murray was among the many fans who called in to wish Doris a very Happy Birthday - prizes given to lucky winners were copies of Doris's new CD from SONY/TCM "With A Smile and a Song" and the new 4 movie set from TCM Warners, PLUS the biggie - an overnight stay for two at Doris's CYPRESS INN Hotel in Carmel, CA, plus dinner and breakfast for two at Terry's Lounge....needless to say, the winners were thrilled. It was a great day for a Great Lady - also had three veteran DJs - Harry King from the BBC in the UK, Jack McDermott former WBZ jock in Boston in the '50s who is a great friend to Connie Francis, and veteran broadcaster, our own Keith Angstadt, VP of Programming and everything at Baltimore Net Radio....did they have some stories!
Will let you know when it will be rebroadcast again....coming up this Thursday, April 5th from 3pm - 4pm (New York time) is a very special new feature with CONNIE FRANCIS and Jack McDermott called "The Story Behind the Song"...check out our press release:
I don't recall you ever posting about BNR before Mary Anne but it looks like a cool site. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
Kevin, think you will like what you hear - we play music from the greats....have done birthday celebrations for some of the greats during the past couple of years - this past January we honored Dolly Parton with a great interview, last November we honored Patti Page with another brief, but great interview - last year did Connie Francis, Brenda Lee, Bobby Vinton and Johnny Mathis....it is nice to honor those who have given us such pleasure over the years and who are still alive. It is rewarding to these shows - Our weekly "A VISIT WITH CONNIE FRANCIS" is interesting also - she is a delightful lady and has a new book coming out this summer...we will be going down to cover the event. Just check out our website, but I guess you already have - now enjoy our music. Thank you Kevin...keep up the great work on this site.
