Larry Scott's Gold Country 1972


Larry Scott celebrates the history of country music on "Gold Country"

Jim Hawthorne's Comedy Theatre


Jim Hawthorne was a genius.  He was doing freeform radio in the 1940s.  "The Hawthorne Thing" was the final NBC radio show to originate on the west coast.  He did short films, records, television. 

He did many shows for AFRTS.  I can't date this one, but it looks to be from the late 60s or early 70s.  The Comedy Theatre sounds a bit like the comedy show that Jack Carney and Dick Cavett did in the 1980s..


More about Jim Hawthorne

The Hawthorne Thing was a series of 5 minute fillers

AFPN Clark Topics 1969


So do you remember all of the local television shows?  A lot of PSA stuff.  This is from AFPN Clark AFB in 1969.

AFN Nightside - Craig Miller speaks with Van Morrison

Van Morrison

The stars sure came out for AFN in the 70s.  Today Craig Miller speaks with Van Morrison in 1974

AFN Streaming live

The good news is that AFN is streaming over the internet, like the English and the Canadians.  The bad news is that you can't hear it in the United States (like the English and the Canadians).  But it is a good start.
