Amercian broadcasting legend Cousin Brucie Morrow is to host a special show on satellite radio network SIRIUS to interview veteran TV newsman Tom Brokaw.
“There was so much going on in the ‘60s, and Tom personally witnessed the changes that were taking place,” Cousin Brucie said. “His observations are invaluable and his reporting historic.”
The discussion can be heard on ‘60s Vibrations channel 6 this Sunday.
Cousin Brucie will also be honored by the Broadcasters Foundation of America at the NAB convention with the Pioneer Award on April 16th.
Bruce Morrow joined SIRIUS following the June 3, 2005 demise of the local oldies station CBS FM in New York, where he had been one of the city's most popular on-air hosts since 1984. Brucie has been a mainstay of hit radio for over 40 years, and in August 1965 he had the honor of introducing the Beatles at their historic Shea Stadium concert.
He also is well known for his role as the magician in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, for which he was also the music consultant.
