Charlie Tuna 1991


Sad day when we lost Charlie.  Broadcasting at it's best.  Waking up the world for a quarter century.  Who did anything close to that? http://www.charlietuna.com . 




Jim Pewter 1976


A Friday, a new year and Jim Pewter.  Jim celebrated this music every day.  Writing, performing, playing the songs on the radio and being a record dealer.  He loves and shares this music.

Mail Call 1944








Mail Call. May 24, 1944. Program #93. The program is dedicated to the state of Kentucky. Borah Minevich and His Harmonica Rascals do a spectacular arrangement of, "Brazil." Mortimer Snerd tells Paulette Goddard about his first date. Charlie McCarthy tries to apologize to W. C. Fields for setting a skunk trap in Fields' garden. This is a well-known routine, using the same script as in, "The "Chase and Sanborn Program" recording from September 21, 1941. This time, W. C. loses his place in the script and mis-reads several lines. The date above is the recording date. The program was released June, 1944.


Early AFRS and WC Fields, total win.







Ira Cook 1965


KMPC had a lot of talent that was part of our team.  Ira was another Minnesotan.  He was a WWII vet.  It was quite a story.




Gene Price 1973


Willard is back, with your favorite silliness. Gene Price Country World is nice way to start the back to work crunch.
