Back Waxing for a Good Cause

by Ramonica R. Jones  

The 10th Annual KICKS 105 St. Jude Radiothon raised more than $103,000. That's a record for Deep East Texas donations through the radiothon.

The money will be used to fight childhood cancer at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. As a reward, DJ Danny Merrell made good on a promise to have his back waxed live on air. He promised to have the procedure done if the radiothon raised more than a $100,000.

Merrell said, "I thought, 'well, let's try that. How much could it actually hurt'? I had forgotten as I looked in the mirror to see how much hair would actually be coming out of my back. It's all for a good thing, but I might hesitate on making that same offer again next year."

Merrell had his back waxing professionally done by a team from Bravo Salon.
