4-20-2009, John O'Hurley stopped in for an interview on one of our stations and graciously posed for pictures. He was in Anchorage playing King Arthur in the musical Monty Python's Spamalot. And we will always remember him as J. Peterman from Seinfeld and those GCI commercials.

And here is ANOTHER cover of a Queen song. Let's see if you can name all of the artists.
I just found out that one of the greatest voices in pop music is now silent. Whitney Houston has passed away today. As I write this blog, details are still unknown as to how the 48 year old singing sensation's life ended.
But while she lived, she gave us hit after hit, and earned an impressive number of music awards, including six Grammy's, two Emmy's, and dozens of Billboard Music Awards and AMA's. Her voice became an inseparable part of the 80's and 90's, starting in the year I graduated, 1985. Dance hits, ballads, inspirational songs, she could do them all.
I won't bother to go into the details about her tumultuous married life or controversy that surrounded her in later years. Frankly, I avoided those aspects because they often seemed to be fuelled by the media.
I would like to remember her for the music she made which touched the lives of many, including my own. Click on the picture above to see Music on Demand for Whitney Houston. Most of her greatest hits are on that list.
As for me, I'll say goodbye to her with this song below. It's one that kept me going in my earlier years when I really had nothing to go one but a crazy hope that tomorrow things would be better.
Goodbye, Whitney Houston, and thanks for the songs that will be forever in the soundtrack of our memories.
