Story 478
Phyllis Diller - Phyllis Diller was scheduled to do a talk show on WYES-TV, PBS in New Orleans, Louisiana. When her car stopped in front of the studio, there was a long sidewalk up to the entrance. As she walked,a little Italian lady was sweeping her front sidewalk and saw Phyllis enter the building. The show was about ninety minutes long, everyone was totally in love with Phyllis Diller, she was so gracious to all of us. As she left the building, the little Italian lady had called all of her Friends and neighbors to see Phyllis Diller! Phyllis didn't rush at all, she spoke to each little lady and autographed a picture for each person. As the limo pulled away, Phyllis was waving out the back window at the little ladies. Our TV studio had an on-air auction, one of the most successful PBS yearly auctions in the United States, raising over a million dollars in one week every year. To support the station, Phyllis sent autographed gifts for the auction from all over the world.
