Charlie at KHJ
The most consistant personality in radio was Charlie Tuna. He did the same meticulous program in 1970 that he did in 1995. Normally that would be a bad thing, not with Charlie Tuna.
He was heard around the world daily on the Armed Forces Radio Network for a 25 year – 6000 show run from 1971 to 1996, as well as on numerous nationally syndicated radio shows, since the early 70’s. He’s now heard in syndication around the world.
Charlie has his own really great website over at charlietuna.com If you haven't been there yet you should!

In 1963 it really hadn't been that long since we lost MAJ Glenn Miller during WWII. Glenn entertained the troops and cut a lot of exclusive music for AFRS and V Disc. Andy Mansfield did a five part tribute.

Don Tracy in Hartford
The return of Don Tracy? Don has at least one project on tap that sounds pretty exciting. He still sounds great and I can't wait to find out what it actually is. I'll let you know. Right now, it's magic.

Chris Noel in Pleiku 1968
Chris really stepped to the plate, did a wonderful show and went to the troops. Today she still supports the troops in need with her homeless shelter for veterans. Vetsville

This disk was played may times on our stations in Canada. A great mystery program never really ages. We still ran them in the 1970s and 80s. This program was originally broadcast in 1949 and rebroadcast on AFRTS may times.
"The Unburied Dead". A good story about a woman who first finds out that she's not who she thinks she is, then, that she's been dead for six years, and finally, that she's wanted for murder!
Christmas will be here soon. A nice gift for holiday giving is Gene's book, "Lukas Maiden Voyage". It's a story of hope. It was written by a friend. Click here
Here's Gene and Leonard with your country favorites.

It's how radio is done, he sure could sell. The border blasters were totally geared on how much merchandise the talent could sell. The best of them made a lot more money than in New York. This guy was that good. Let's hear about the Air Force!

Today it is Roger, with the Happy Hour and memories of 1978.
"Thom there was a young attractive production lady who worked on a TV show I announced her boy friend was an artist at Disney . They both listened to me on KMPC It was a birthday gift I can not remember what show it was or her name .I now walk a little slower , memory is not what it used be also repeat things Dad get a hearing aid (you want something at Rite Aid ) BUT I sure do remember she was very attractive I think many of the attractive production ladies maybe were hand picked may be some of those ladies are on FB they would be old today the ones I worked with."
And it has a place of honor at Roger's
Thank you once again RC!

Part of our history that seems to be gone was the stations in the United States. A lot of posts had radio, Seemingly supported by AFRS. In El Paso, presumably Fort Bliss was WBG. Many of the big country acts performed there.
Peter Birch was a dancer, choreographer and musician who most famously directed Captain Kangaroo for 25 years. In January 1949 he performed at WBG.

Derrick has checked in. Welcome!
I was very happy to find your site and the page where you featured my Zfm show. I was the morning show guy from 1994 - 1995 at AFN HQ.
On one occasion I helped SRA Angie Pianga re-launch Spagndahlem's radio station which had been dormant for decades. I was there with a fan dressed as a chicken to do the inaugural show. A few years earlier Angie and I were radio broadcasters at AFKN in Seoul, Korea.
