In February of 1977, my friend, singer/songwriter, Alan O’day called and asked if I wanted to premiere his new song, “Undercover Angel,” on my radio show on KMPC in Los Angeles. When I heard the song, I told Alan, that it was a “mega-hit” and said I had an idea of how we could have some fun with my listeners.

After playing the song on the air, I predicted that it would reach the top of the Billboard music charts nationally and asked listeners to bet what they would do if it made it No.1.

Within weeks, the song, was indeed, No. 1 in the nation!

Listeners began to make good on what they had bet: cookies, cakes, etc.. One of those listeners was a teenager named Whitney Allen. Little did she know that delivering her unique bet would change her life forever.

Listen as I reunite with my longtime friend and she tells the inspiring story of how her radio journey to "the big time" all began!
