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.
