MAY 1ST  1998

Merritt Island, FL - 1480east radio, the creators of  Florida’s Another Unconventional Sunday Morning (AUSM) and nationally acclaimed FM Odyssey (“A Tribute To Laura Nyro” and  “Home For Thanksgiving”), have conceived yet another exceptional radio event.  A magical special tracing the 37 year career of legendary performer/songwriter Judy Collins will be broadcast nationally in an exclusive interview entitled “Judy Collins - Forever In A Day”.

Judy flew into Florida in April and spent three hours behind the piano with AUSM/FM Odyssey host and Executive Producer, Fred Migliore at LNG recording Studios in Merritt Island.

“So many people are familar with Judy’s work and not the human being behind the music” , Migliore said. “Our primary focus was to combine Judy’s enchanting personality along with her inspirational music in an intimate setting...so intimate that you can almost imagine her sitting across from you in your own living room while she shares special moments in her life.

Complete with in studio performances, wonderful stories and music from her catolog, this special is a timeless inspiration that captures all of Judy Collins.

Judy Collins “Forever In A Day”, will be available via the Public Radio Satellite at no charge to interconnected and community public radio stations across America.

Interested Underwriters for this very special presentation are encouraged to call FM Odyssey at 800-341-1480 or email us at FMOdyssey@aol.com or AUSM@juno.com.  After the praise recieved from the 60 plus radio stations that aired FM Odyssey’s first two specials in 1997, we encourage all new interested radio stations to contact us too”.

In a widely-circulated article, Readers Digest records is talking about the definitive Judy Collins boxed set--for release this year. I was very impressed with the Book of the Month Club LP boxed set that was done many years ago. It was very nicely arranged and presented--let's hope Readers Digest does as well or even better!
