Hopefully you were listening this morning and you're in on the whole "Nellie Melba' joke. If you weren't, let me try to explain it to you. Every weekday morning at 7:20 am we announce the birthdays and the anniversaries and we also talk about what day it is according to the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate National Peach Melba Day. Don explained that it's a dessert that's made with peaches, vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce and according to the National Day Calendar, the dessert honored Australian soprano, Nellie Melba.

So, this is where the 'Nellie Melba' joke comes in. Don suggested that if you need to give a fake name for an email or registration form, 'Nellie Melba' would be a good choice. Then, we suggested that if you're looking for something fun to do today, you should call a grocery store or some company and ask them to page 'Nellie Melba'. We asked that if you did call or page "Nellie Melba", that you record it and send it to us. Well, ask and you shall receive....take a minute or two to watch the video below of Brian trying to reach 'Nellie Melba'. Thanks Brian for sending us your video! You made our morning!
