Rebel Randall - 1951

Rebel Randall has a fairly short run during the Korean War, but was popular.  At the time they thought her a little too sultry, but it was the biggest mail getter at AFRTS.  Great show.

Charlie Tuna 1980

That picture is from the AFRTS-LA promo set of 8x10s that went to every station. 

It's a trip to 1980, a Friday and time for the Charlie Tuna Show.

Sagebrush Theater 1970

Sam Buffington as Luke Slaughter

Sagebrush Theater "from the library of radio programs from many years ago" was one of many shows that rebroadcast radio shows from the 1940s and 50s.  We had an amazing library of these saved from their first runs.  We had many stations that didn't have television.  That worked out as a good fit.

Kris Erik Stevens 1980

Kris Erik Stevens sent in a nice promo picture for the collection (pictured). Kris had been a legend in Chicago radio before Los Angeles. Thanks!
