Rock ’n’ roll music and television have always had a symbiotic relationship—particularly in the ’50s and ’60s, when both were coming into their own. While TV was one way to connect with our rock ’n’ roll heroes, the most important connection were often the voices behind the disc jockeys of our favorite radio stations.
Joining us this week will be one of the most famous DJs of all time: Bruce Morrow, the legendary radio personality known around the world as Cousin Brucie. As Cousin Brucie, Morrow not only introduced millions of listeners across the U.S. to the music of The Beatles in 1963 (when he was behind the microphone at WABC Radio in New York), he, along with Ed Sullivan, introduced the Beatles at their famous concert at Shea Stadium in August 1965 and got to know John, Paul, George, and Ringo very well through his many interviews with them. In addition, Morrow introduced Americans to Motown, 1960s soul, surf music, and other musical artists simply by playing their songs on his show.
Morrow’s career in radio spans six decades, including the past fifteen years on SiriusXM satellite radio. Last month, he launched the latest chapter of his career with Cousin Brucie’s Saturday Night Rock ’n’ Roll Party, a new, weekly Saturday night music show on WABC Radio in New York that not only marks a personal homecoming, but brings the essence of local radio to a national audience. We’ll tell you what we mean by that, plus Brucie will share a few stories from his showbiz career, including the time he taught Bob Hope how to become a disc jockey—live on the air—as well as his friendships with such music legends as Harry Chapin. Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow will join us in our second hour.
Also this week: We will welcome three-time Emmy nominated costume designer Diana Eden. Diana’s career in the entertainment industry began as a teenager, when she danced with the National Ballet of Canada and was part of their national touring performance of Swan Lake. After graduating from the University of Toronto, she joined the national touring company of My Fair Lady, then performed on Broadway, as a dancer and an actress, in the productions of Hot Spot with Judy Holliday, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum with Zero Mostel, Fade In Fade Out with Carol Burnett, and The Odd Couple with Richard Benjamin and Dan Dailey, where she played Gwendolyn Pigeon.
A chance meeting with Ann-Margret in the mid 1970s paved the way for Diana’s second act as a costume designer for stage, film and television, including the European tour and Central Park concert of Diana Ross, the MGM Grand Hotel production of Jubilee, and such TV series as The Facts of Life, Ned and Stacey, and Santa Barbara. As a costume designer and as a performer Diana has grown accustomed to seeing actors in their birthday suits (or close to it!). Not surprisingly, the name of her memoir is Stars in Their Underwear, which we’ll discuss when Diana Eden joins us in our first hour.
Diana Eden’s memoir, Stars in Their Underwear: My Unpredictable Journey from Broadway Dancer to Costume Designer for Some of Hollywood’s Biggest Stars, is the remarkable story of a how young girl from England, after finding her promising career as a ballerina snatched away at age sixteen, reinvents herself, with pluck and determination, as a Broadway dancer and actress before finding joy, fulfillment and tremendous success as a costume designer for such stars as Ann-Margret, Diana Ross, George Clooney, Cloris Leachman, Debra Messing, Lea Thompson, Betty White, Larry Hagman and legendary costume designer Bob Mackie.
