There's Something About Meri
One of the reasons I love doing the blog, and keep doing the blog is it occasionally inspires something that knocks my socks off.
Case in point, last week.
I opened up my email to find a note from Meri Morrow. I met Meri when I was working down the street and she was working for a television station in Elmira. We were both covering a trial in Towanda in the mid 90's
As we were all standing in front of the courthouse, her photographer whispered to me, "That's Cousin Brucie's daughter." I lost my stuff. I've always been a radio freak, and even today, I listen to radio much more than I watch television. Cousin Brucie was a legendary New York DJ, with very successful stints on WABC and WNBC. He still can be heard on the Sirus/XM 60's channel. Bruce Morrow has raised millions for charity over the decades. Big voice. Big personality. Huge following.
I told Meri how much I loved her dad, and I even read his book. Meri could not have been more kind and gracious. She added that there is a picture of her in the book, as a two year old. That family picture is below.
She had a long career in radio and television, and is now married and living in Florida.
Even though it was email rather than face to face, it was still a thrill communicating with Cousin Brucie's daughter, and a nice individual in her own right.
Meri, thank you.
