Free doughnut or a hug from the Playmate of the Year? Tough call!

1995 Playboy Plamate of the Year Julie Cialini outside WHAS

I’ve forgotten why the Playboy Playmate of the Year was at our WHAS studios in 1995 but I did not complain about it. Julie Cialini sat for an interview and she was very pleasant and willing to meet listeners.

So we had doughnuts sent in and offered commuters a choice. We would broadcast with the Playmate of the Year from the sidewalk in front of our radio station for 30 minutes. Listeners could pull up and choose between a doughnut or a hug from the playmate.

Great fun ensued. Not many doughnuts were chosen. Julie actually ate one. That may have been the most shocking aspect of the show that day.

Imagine a radio segment like this in today’s #MeToo world. I would be burned at the stake and the doughnut baker would be shamed for promoting obesity.
