Spectrum USA - Franklin Roosevelt 1971


It's the Presidents Day weekend.  In 1971 the USMC Reserves did shows about the men who've led our country.  Today Dick Stark has information on FDR.  Thanks John for making these available!



General McArthur addresses Congress 1951


General McArthur reports to Congress 4/19/51.

The Korean war was raging and General George McArthur sums up a lot of things in this address.




Roland Bynum - 1976


1976 and the great memories continue.  .  I'm ready for some Soulin' With Roland.




Bill Finch - 1965


Bill Finch has your big band favorites.  Larry Miller did the definitive write-up on Bill the King of Swing. click here

Jim Pewter - 1981



Jim Pewter has your required dose of the greatest hits of the 1960s.  His feel for that music has never been matched.  Easy to see how this AFKN vet could start with the network in 1967 and stay to the very end of AFRTS-LA programming.

Don Tracy - 1980


So in 1980, I would have played this show on SCN in Panama, getting ready for "Evening on the Isthmus".  Don Tracy made it happen...




Roger Carroll - 1967




Roger enlisted during the Korean War and ended up at the network as an announcer.  Perfect place as he was an ABC network announcer.  Shortly after the war he was doing the Roger Carroll Show until well into the early 80s.  Super talent and a great guy.  Let's remember 1967

Jorn Doremus - 1969


John Doremus brings us the power of the orchestra.  And stories.  




AFN Earl Freudenberg 1973 - Town and Country



Thom, I sent you a clip of the famous tones that played every hour at 59:54.  Here is a picture of the clock that produced those famous tones. The clock was said to be one of the most accurate in the world.   Earl


It's zero-dark-thirty and time to check in with Earl for "Town and Country"

LaRita Shelby 1994


Love that picture.  Here's LaRita.  Matt recorded these in England from about 600 miles away.  It's a bit noisy but a bunch of fun.
