‘The Dailey Project’ Seeks Volunteers for KORD’s Ed Dailey
Thousands of country music fans have been listening to Ed Dailey on Sunday mornings for decades. His Legends of Country show is one of the highest-rated segments on KORD. He has also taught the art of broadcasting to hundreds of students over the years at Tri-Tech Skills Center in Kennewick. Ed is one of those guys who is always there to help. Part of that is the teacher in him, and part of that is his enormous heart. When he's not helping students better themselves, he's raising funds and supplies for the homeless. The number of lives he's touched can't be counted. But as Ed's fight against cancer continues, his normal activities have naturally taken a back seat. You can still hear Ed host Legends of Country every Sunday morning, thanks to his vast collection of past shows, but everyday activities have become impossible due to the beat-down his body is taking from the chemo. One of the things suffering in Ed's life right now is his yard and outdoor surroundings. Those closest to him would like to remedy that. If you would like to lend a hand, details are below. From the entire staff at Townsquare Media, our best thoughts are with you, Ed. Beat this thing. You are an extraordinary part of this world.

LaJay and Ed Dailey need their lawn back so they can relax. Let's do this thing! This is for the first weekend, if more work needs done we will do the weekend after the 4th. Put it on your calendar if you can. We won't all be available at the same time but that's ok. Let's do this for them so they both can heal. Will have more details soon. Will supply porta pottys so we are not in and out of the house, will provide shade, ice water (maybe beer if you're good) and sandwiches for lunch. If you can't help manually maybe consider a small donation for flowers and plants. We can't fix it all but we can help.
