Annual birthday tribute to Doris Day...
by Stephen M
(Last updated: 04 April 2010,
Doris Day for a 4th
consecutive year phoned in for a telephone chat
with her local radio station...
Doris Day's local
radio station KIDD 630-AM (formerly known as MAGIC 63 AM) broadcasts to
the Monterey Bay Area of California. The station recently changed
its name and format from Adult Standards to Oldies and now to
ESPN sports - except for Saturdays and Sundays. The
burning question for months now was therefore will these changes effect the
station's annual birthday broadcast?!
thankfully, there was no change (at least for 2010)
and a special 4-hour tribute show
hosted by the station's long-term DJ Ed Dickinson began on Saturday, April 3rd
8am (Pacific Standard time). It included many
classic Doris Day music recordings
with messages from the star's fans from around the
world and co-stars such as A.E. Hotchner (DD's
official biographer), actress Jackie Joseph (Co-star
from "The DD Show"), author Pierre Patrick, singer
Nellie McKay and Les Brown Jnr.
Doris Day also called in during the
third hour of the show for a live-on-air chat.
worry if you live outside of the Monterey Bay
Area as for a limited time you can listen to the
entire broadcast online. The station has created a
special page which is now linked below. Go to "Part
7" of the broadcast if you want to skip to Doris's
telephone chat. I'll tell you now she sounded in
such great health, is full of the joys of spring and
keeping as busy as ever with her animal welfare
thanks to KIDD-AM and all the wonderful people who
played a part in producing and preparing for this
lovely tribute show (that includes DD!).
