Shirley Temple passed away today at the age of 85.  She began her career at 3 years old and was a child superstar throughout the 1930s.  She later became a diplomat, serving as the United States ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.  Nicknamed "Curly Top," she was best known for a string of successful movies including Bright Eyes, Poor Little Rich Girl and Wee Willie Winkie.  Temple worked on radio starring in Shirley Temple Time alongside notables such as Lionel Barrymore and Humphrey Bogart.  She was also a commercial spokesperson for Grunow Teledial radios.

I wonder if Temple knew that a station in Malta Bend, Missouri used her likeness to promote their station?  KRLI "Curly 103.9" was an MOR/Oldies station in the early 2000s.  It appears that they now carry a Country format.
