Birthday Parade Held for Radio Personality Recovering from COVID
Friends and fans of an Evansville radio personality recovering from COVID-19 and double pneumonia honored him with a birthday parade.
Joe Blair Manor, known on-air as Joe Blair, has been treated at Deaconess Midtown Hospital for nearly a month.
He turned 60 on Monday and officials allowed him to visit with his wife for the first time since his hospitalization and to be wheeled outside to Virginia St.
Speaking at a safe distance, Blair told WNIN that “COVID is crazy“…
"Wear your mask. If you go more than five or six days feeling bad, go to the ER."
Blair also thanked the staff at Deaconess Midtown and the community…
"The ER's great. This place, well, everybody in the Tri-State's awesome. But Deaconess has been so wonderful."
And then, the parade of well-wishers in cars decorated with signs and balloons rolled by.
Blair’s daughters organized the birthday parade, which started at Bosse Field.
