Carol Channing Star of Broadway’s Hello Dolly Appears on The Al Cole Show!

 Carol Channing is the beloved legend who starred roles in Hello Dolly and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She’s won three Tony Awards, a Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination; starred with Ginger Rogers, Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore; was a guest on CBS’s What’s My Line; was Grandmama Addams’ voice in The Addams Family; and was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1981. Carol also merited an honorary doctorate in 2004!

Currently Dr. Carol Channing, along with her husband Harry Kullijian, is about getting important legislation bringing the Arts back into the public school system passed in the U.S. Senate…and interviewer Al Cole is all for it!

In Carol’s lovely and classic words, “We’re soooo excited! Rep. Jackie Speier (CA-12) was inspired by us to sponsor House Concurrent Resolution (H Con Res) 275. The resolution encourages that all elected officials and schools support the designation of Arts in Education Week beginning on the second Sunday of September. Rep. Speier garnered support from 101 of her colleagues in the House and the bill passed the House July 26, 2010. Since July 27, 2010 the bill was in the Senate and on December 22, 2010 (just before the end of the session) was passed! This is a wonderful start to our national campaign to restore arts education to all public schools. Please say thank you to your Representative if a co-sponsor of H.Con.Res 275!”

About Al Cole

Al Cole, “Mr. Romance,” has lived some life, and has paid some dues. Al, an African-American man(don’t let the blue eyes fool ya!), is the product of a very loving, very special, romantic mother and father. From the earliest age Al related to that generous, loving, romantic spirit that was nurtured in him.

Al has also seen oppression. Oppression can sometimes breed sensitivity and empathy. This aspect of living has caused Al to relate to women even more sensitively and empathetically. A sensitivity and empathy that Al calls “Romance.” Creativity rounds out the character. Al is a born and professional entertainer. Through Al’s singing and songwriting, his CBS Radio broadcasting, and through the depth of his voice, Al has learned many ways to deliver his “Romance” message—seriously, comically, sensually and spiritually. He has carried the Romantic word out to women…and to men too. And in the carrying of that message, Al has found that women and men from all backgrounds have often asked for his advice and guidance concerning their familial and romantic relationships.

Al has been particularly blessed to have women confide some of their deepest personal and relationship secrets to him. These “secrets” coupled with his own experiences and intuitions have combined in his offering both women and men some of the most powerful, enlightening, and mind-challenging guidance that they say they have ever received.

Al has been told over and over again by his fans, fans who affectionately call themselves “Al Cole-holics”, that his reflections, as well as his romantic words, could fill a book. The reflections, the romance, and the “secrets” have now been revealed in Al’s new book Romance for Women…& For All Mankind!

Al is also the Host of Al Cole: People of Distinction on WomensRadio. Al Cole: PEOPLE Of DISTINCTION is a unique show giving distinctive public figures the chance to talk not only about their great public accomplishments, but also notable aspects of themselves as individuals…what motivates them to create the things they do, their special goals and interests, their insights into life itself!
