Jim Ameche 1968
Jim Ameche had the relaxing sounds. He had a high profile easy listening show. Jim's career started in 1930s radio as the original "Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy"
When brother Don Ameche left the Chase and Sanborn Show, Jim signed on as the announcer. He had many successes in the Golden Days of Radio.
By the 1950s he was a successful DJ in Los Angeles and New York and started syndicating a nationwide DJ show. Around this time he signed with AFRTS and continued well into the 1960s. We lost Jim in 1983.
