Johnny Grant - Small World 1967

Somehow I've never gotten around to Johnny Grant.  "The Mayor of Hollywood" hosted many shows for the network during the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  He made 15 trips to Korea and 14 to Vietnam.

He was another KMPC guy and made some great radio.  In 1967 Johnny hosted Small World.  That program had been around for years as sort of a clone of NBCs Monitor.  Johnny added a lot of personality.  We lost Mr. Grant in 2008.

On this broadcast, a report from Vietnam.
