I 1 A 3? ,J--i.;;'V:;!r,.. Danny practices a yoga headsland on his living room rug. (Continued) and somebody asked me 'How do you get by with doing the things you do?" And I said - just trying to be flip and entertaining 'I'm a member of the family.' The next morning it was construed that I said I was married lo Gay lord's daughter. I didn't say any such thins. Sometimes I'll say something to be entertaining and people will take me dead serious. Then when I say something serious, they think I'm hilarious." Then there's the public feuds. Danny savs all the people he kids on the air like Jerry Adam's, Ken Root, Ed Hardy arc really good friends. He says it's all just show business - clone in (un to entertain the audience. Some of the phrases he uses each day on the radio have piqued curiosity - "Today's my birthday." "traveling east" and "I love you - pass it on." As Danny explains them: lay down at night, I don't know where I go. When the alarm clock goes off, I'm born again. Everybody is traveling east - that's the way the earth turns. When I say 'I love you pass it on' t feel that. I don't hate anybody," But there arc people who "hate" Danny Williams. "I've been turned off by the people a lot. Some mornings 1 can hear the dial turn. -When I first got in the business somebody threatened to kill me and that's happened a few times in my life. -Early in my career at WKY-TV, I got my first hate letter. It just crushed me. Hoyt Andres took me in his office and asked me if I liked all the good things that people wrote in. I said 'yeah.' So he asked me why I was so upset about this. He told me thev came from the same type person. One For Danny, Life's a trip Going East person is expressing one side and the other person the other side. And neither one is real." He takes a practical view now: "The more hate mail you get - the higher your ratings go." With ail the attention and publicity he gets, why didn't he move on from Oklahoma City? It's simple: "I've never had an opportunity to go anywhere. I had that one offer to go to NBC. I had an opportunity to program a radio station in New York City. We had one conversation and I never heard from them again. I guess it doesn't speak very well of me." Danny would like to go to Hollywood and make movies. He believes he would make a good character actor. He says being a disc jockey is what he loves, although there are some things he'd like to change. "I don't select the music. I'd play a little different music if it were left up to me. "I don't get to play any Elvis Presley. I think lo boa disc jockey and not be able to play Elvis Presley is ridiculous." Danny spends his spare time playing golf which he says relaxes him. When he's not on the links, he's working with his bird dogs.jTupting. fishing or practicing yoga. After his divorce, Danny bought a house in Quail Creek last December. The only plans he has is to plant a garden and a "bunch" of flowers. But he's still in there pitching. This summer he's starting a new TV show, "Danny and Mary's Summer Show," which will be premiering soon on KTVY. So who Is Danny Williams? "I'm just a child of God. a free spirit.
