Famous Names

This article from Business Insider (click on the image to read it) about a young woman’s travails because her name is Beyoncé, reminded me a promotion we did at WMT-FM way back when called “Famous Names.”

We invited anyone who shared a name with a celebrity to attend a fundraiser. About thirty showed up. I specifically remember Robin Williams (a woman).

But our biggest “get” had to be the Rev. Elvis Pressley. Yes, we did announce “Elvis has left the building” when the Rev split.

And I still occasionally see Paul Newmann around town.
