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.
