Radio One Detroit and Keith Washington are praying for Ms Franklin to have a speedy recovery.
Kisses after Dark is hosted nightly by Keith Washington from 7pm – 10pm Monday through Friday on 105.9 FM and streamed live at kissdetroit.com. The live stream is always accessible to the public via our website at http://www.kissdetroit.com and has been since the inception of Kisses after dark with Keith Washington.
The phone conversation with Ms. Franklin and Keith Washington was originally streamed live on November 5, 2010. This is the day after the announcement was made that Ms. Franklin’s canceled all tour dates due to her health issues. At no time was this conversation played over the air as other media sources have erroneously claimed.
Because of the high volume of searches of “Aretha Franklin” on at kissdetroit.com, since the December 8, 2010 announcement regarding her health, the live stream link has gained prominence. The more it is searched the more prominent it becomes on the website. This live stream has been on the kissdetroit.com website since November 5, 2010. As of December 9, 2010 the status has been changed to private so the general public can’t access the live stream on our website. Radio One Detroit and Keith Washington who is a dear and close friend of Aretha Franklin would never intentionally take any action that would jeopardize our relationship with Ms Franklin.
