Before Pete Smith, Before John Doremus. Jim Ameche

In the 1950s and 60s Jim Ameche held down the easy listening duties at AFRTS.  Jim was the first to successfully syndicate a DJ show nationwide.

Jim was the original Jack Armstrong on the popular program of the same name.  By the 50s and 60s he was being heard in New York and Los Angeles eventually hosting classics on WQXR, New York.
