"The Lisa Tolliver Show" Special Broadcast on MLK Day, January 16, 2006

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY - I was honored to be invited by New York Radio WVOX AM 1460 to host a one-hour special broadcast commemorating MLK Day at 3:00-4:00 p.m, Eastern Time. Read the agenda for today's show in the posting for my January 11 broadcast, which also celebrated Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.. You can also access information about MLK Day, Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement there.

Some of the media incorporated into today's show included the following:



  • "Precious Lord" recorded by B.B. King (1963) - Dr. King had requested that "Precious Lord" be sung at his funeral.



We engaged in a few quizzes during the show. The questions are listed below. For the answers, please visit again soon to hear the show recording, which will be accessible from here shortly.

  • What if the Civil Rights workers had been unwilling to go to jail?
  • What if Rosa Parks had not been good-looking and demure?
  • What was the FBI's code word for MLK?


After the show, I rushed to Tarrytown to enjoy readings, a fabulous spread and literary company at the WLS Annual African-American Writers & Readers Literary Tea. For details about this event and information about registering for next year's event, click here. ###
