Carol Channing: Gallo Wine Driver
Wrote My New Arts Anthem

It’s not often that truck drivers get their songs showcased by superstars like Carol Channing – or any celeb, for that matter. But that’s exactly what happened in the case of one such driver from her hometown of Modesto, Calif. Interviewed this week on The Fruit Salad Show, Carol says that – as part of her new Job Corps campaign to inspire delinquent school kids – she opens her presentations with a composition about the importance of arts programs in America’s public schools. “A truck driver who drives trucks for Gallo wines… wrote a song for me to sing. And he’s exactly on the nose,” Carol tells hosts Pauly and Marky – before quipping, “I could sing it for you Acapulco.” Moments later, the Hello Dolly diva – who, in 2004, was awarded an honorary doctorate in fine arts by California State University – does in fact belt out the unnamed driver’s number a cappella.
