April 19th WIKY Morning Show
** Of course, the big news item yesterday afternoon was the passing of Dick Clark at age 82. I think everyone has their own memory of what he meant to them, whether it was watching him on "American Bandstand," on "The $10,000 Pyramid," or watching him countdown to the New Year on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve." The man was a pioneer in so many facets of the radio and television industry. I found this obit on Dick Clark online yesterday, and I thought it was fascinating. Click on this link to check it out.
On a personal note, my Aunt Carolyn (who passed away in 2003 and I still miss her to this day), went to high school with Dick Clark. They both graduated from A.B. Davis High in Mt. Vernon, New York in the class of 1947. I remember seeing this picture of him in her yearbook. Back then, he was known as "Richard Clark." Enjoy this picture of "the world's oldest teenager" from when he actually WAS a teenager!
Culture Quiz Question:
The average lifespan of this household item is 50 years. What?
Congrats to Damon Manes of Evansville! He wins swag from Subway and a pair of tickets to "Young Frankenstein" at The Centre on April 29th!
** And tomorrow, we team up with The Salvation Army and 14WFIE for "The War on Hunger." Join Mark Elliott at the Westside Schnuck's (all Schnuck's locations are participating) starting at 6 a.m. as he broadcasts live along with personalities from WFIE. We're asking for non-perishable food donations or cash donations to help The Salvation Army help those in the Tri-State that struggle to put enough food on their table.
The WIKY Morning Show returns tomorrow at 5:55 a.m. See you then!
