Donna Dollar

Donna Dollar has been in the Radio Business for 17 years now and still loving every minute of it. She learned all about radio and remote broadcasting from her Father Johnny who was a long time DJ in El Paso and took a liking to it immediately . Always Daddy’s Little Girl, Donna followed her dad from place to place learning the ropes and even voicing some commercials for him. After high school, Donna spent a lot of her time as an intern for radio stations until finally landing her first gig in El Paso, her home town. In 2007, Donna brought her show to 101 Gold and later became a Las Cruces resident. When Donna is not on the air she spends her time on the “other side of the building” as the Traffic Manager making sure all Bravo Mic Communications’ wonderful clients are on the air! Donna loves living in Las Cruces; her favorite thing to see in the morning outside her window are the beautiful Organ Mountains. Donna enjoys spending each and every day with her listeners playing their favorites from 10-2 and hosting the all-request lunch hour. Donna says she is very grateful for the loyal listeners who stick by her and give her support and that she can’t imagine doing anything else.

"Savages" Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsJohn Travolta reportedly felt so guilty about his flubbing Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars that he sent her an apology gift backstage of her new Broadway musical If/Then. A source revealed to E! News, “He sent  her a big, gorgeous bouquet of flowers to her dressing room. It was HUGE. It was his apology to her. It was clear he felt very bad about it. And by the size of the arrangement it was an obvious ‘forgive me please’ gesture.” In the days following John’s error on live TV, he released a statement saying, “I’ve been beating myself up all day. Then I thought…What would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, ‘Let it go, let it go!’ Idina is incredibly talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars that night!”

The Rolling Stones have postponed their tour of Australia and New Zealand in the wake of the suicide earlier this week of Mick Jagger‘s longtime girlfriend, model/designer L’Wren Scott. The seven-date trek was supposed to start tonight (March 19th) in Perth. So far, none of the Stones’ five upcoming European dates have been canceled. The band is next set to perform on June 7th at the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands.  

The band issued a formal announcement yesterday which read:

The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their 14 ON FIRE tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement.

 It was 45 years ago today (March 12th, 1969) that Paul and Linda McCartney were married in London. The couple met in 1967 at London’s Bag O’Nails nightclub when Linda, already a noted rock photographer, was out for the night with members of the Animals. Paul made a point of introducing himself to Linda, and planted the seeds to one of rock n’ roll’s most famous and enduring relationships, which continued until Linda’s death on April 17th, 1998.

Billy Joel will be giving back to his local community during his birthday gig at Madison Square Garden. Billy’s May 9th show at the legendary Manhattan venue is his 5th of 12 sold out gigs at the Garden and will be played on the “Piano Man’s” 65th birthday, with Newsday reporting that a portion of the show’s proceeds will go to Long Island’s North Shore Animal League’s Bianca’s Furry Friends.

The campaign is “being spearheaded by his friends Howard and Beth Stern and would fund the addition of a second floor to the group’s Port Washington headquarters and expand space for animal care.”
