Here are some montages of 2007 and
"Daily Bailey" features
morning man Les Cook communicates telephonically with the Duke of Louisville.
One day in 1977,
Bill Bailey and Reed Yadon originated the WAKY morning
show from the home of contest winners J.K. and Doris Adams in
Louisville. Luckily for us, this piece of broadcast history was
captured on Super 8 film -- and was preserved until May, 2005 when
it was converted into digital format. You see and hear the Duke and
Reed have breakfast with the Adams and then do several breaks from
the dining room table. If you're a Bill Bailey fan who's never had
the honor of watching him in action, this is a "must see."
A great big Super 79
thank you to Swain Ottman of Shepherdsville, Kentucky who
contributed the video to 79WAKY.com, as well as Bill and Linda
Ottman of Louisville who paid for the format transfer. The
cameraman and editor was Rusty Heaps.
