IS THIS REALLY KEVIN COSTNER ON THE LINE?
One morning in early 2002 switch boarder Preva told me that there was a woman on one of the 800 lines claiming she was in Hawaii with Kevin Costner and that her friends called saying that Mark and Brian were talking about Kevin. I picked up the phone to talk with her and she told me her name was Christine, a big fan of the show and that if I let her say hi to the boys she would hand the phone to Kevin.
Being very skeptical I asked her for the name of Kevin’s publicist…She came back with the correct answer. I had her hold on for a few minutes and during a commercial I gave Mark and Brian the scoop, telling them that I was not 100 percent sure it was the real deal. They decided to take a chance and put Christine on the air. She was very excited to finally speak to her favorite radio hosts and after saying goodbye she handed phone to the man lying on couch next to her, he came on the line…and yes it was Kevin Costner. A few months later, Christine and Kevin tied the knot!
Kevin became a friend of show, joined Mark and Brian in the studio to promote ‘Open Range’ and played in of one our celebrity golf tournaments.
