Kathie Lee Gifford will be on our program next week. I gather from some messages I received that some people just don't think NPR and Kathie Lee Gifford belong in the same sentence.

But millions of people like her — including me. I think she's a funny, shrewd old show biz pro who has played in churches and cruise ships on her way to concerts, Broadway and television studios, and next week she'll recall the time that she sang gospel songs for thousands of prisoners in the San Luis Obispo, California federal prison.
