    How about a tribute channel for the brave men and women that risk their lives every day to protect our way of life? I've heard enough about a spoiled brat who pissed her life away.

    Sorry </rant> :blush:

    I'm not big on tributes to celebrities or athletes to begin with. Their importance in the grand scheme of life as opposed to other occupations is nil.

    Sad in this case, sure. Shocking, not in the least.

    I'm going to take advantage of this one time program. Haven't heard the real Whitney in some time. I don't think she made any smart personal choices in the past fifteen years so I'll enjoy her pre 2000 songs.

    Her sudden, but not totally unexpected death reminds me of the here today, gone tomorrow way stars of the 60's lived their lives. It's makes the accomplishments of drug users of yesteryear like Eric Clapton more significant than usual.

    Lot's of hits from the past. The DJ sprinkled in other songs so it wasn't straight Whitney. Well organized and tastefully produced.

    Oprah & Whitney: One Moment In Time

    In memory of Whitney Houston, Oprah Radio opens The Oprah Winfrey Show archives to September 2009. It was the season 24 premiere, and Oprah sat down with Whitney for a special one-on-one interview. After nearly seven years since the world heard the music icon's voice, Whitney gave an intimate and poignant performance of "I Didn’t Know My Own Strength." She shared only with Oprah the private struggles she tried to hide from public view and discussed openly about her marriage to R&B star Bobby Brown, her struggles with drug abuse and why she retreated from the spotlight. Opening up to Oprah like never before, Houston also spoke candidly of the day she left her husband, her sorrow over the death of Michael Jackson and her hopes for her future.

    Tune in for this two hour special airing on Oprah Radio:
    Friday, February 17th 8 am, 12 pm, 4 pm, 8 pm ET
    Saturday, February 18th 3 pm ET
    Sunday, February 19th 3 am ET
