I love Denny back in the day and was very happy to hear him on XMs The Strobe. For all of you fans, you can probably reach him there. I saw that they have email addresses for all of the DJs. BTW, he was not the actor on the Dr. Pepper commercial - that was David Naughton who had his own sitcom for one season called Making It.

He lives in Orlando, FL now. His sister Rhonda owns a hair salon called Hair Biz in Cocoa Beach, FL. She cuts my hair and is a good friend of mine. Every now and then when I go to get my hair cut, Denny will be there or pop in.

Didn`t he do a really famous Dr. Pepper commercial on tv - or was that a diff. actor?

I dated Denny in the early 80`s while he was hosting Dance Fever. We got in a fight and he left with my vintage jacket and would not return it...I would still like it back!

Karen UrbanJul 13, 2008

I was married to a friend of Denny`s from Detroit, MI and have been trying to find a way to reach Denny about his friendship with my husband. How can I get a message to him??? I have heard so much about Denny from my husband and I just want to share with Denny what happened to my husband before he died.
