Actor, Funny-Man Jay Thomas Guests on Animal Radio® - Twenty-Year Furry-Reunion for Radio Hosts

Los Angeles, CA, July 18, 2009 --( Jay Thomas (Cheers, Mr. Holland’s Opus) reunites with Animal Radio® host Hal “9000” Abrams for this weekend's AM/FM and XM Satellite Radio broadcast of Animal Radio® (July 25th).

The familiar-faced actor and radio host has tips for the husbands of cat lovers. “My wife loves to sleep with the cat. All the animals sleep with us. It’s any wonder why I’ve had three kids,” says Thomas. An Animal Radio® listener called in for advice with a pet that seems to always ruin intimate moments with his wife. Jay retorts, “be careful, I had to send my cat to therapy!”

Animal Radio® host Hal Abrams produced Jay Thomas’ Los Angeles morning show from its inception to 1990. While the two have had brief phone conversations, this was the first time they’ve been back on-the-air together since 1990. “He hasn’t missed a beat…although, he has lost a lot of hair,” said Abrams, “he says what we’re all thinking about PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).”

Catch this special broadcast on any one of the 90+ AM or FM radio affiliates, or catch Animal Radio® live on XM Satellite Radio ch. 158 (America's Talk) Saturdays at noon EST and Sundays at 5pm EST. For additional listening options and times, visit
