Ira Cook - 1970




Ira Cook's back.  "Have a happy day, make the most of it"  Who can argue with that?

Minnesotan Ira Cook was a veteran of The Battle of The Bulge in WWII.  He said “During World War II I was at the  Battle of the Bulge and we lost 10-15 guys in my platoon.”  After the war he bounced through a lot of Los Angeles stations, finding his big break at KMPC. 

 "It's safer than stealing, more legal than gambling, easier than loafing, and it beats working!" Ira talking about being a DJ.

He had a long run with AFRTS.  On today's visit Ira visits with Joe South.
