Christmas in Korea - Jim Pewter

Jim Pewter with Little Richard and Bumps Blackwell 1966


Jim Pewter sent this along,  Greetings during the Christmas season 1964.  At the time I was PFC Jim Pewter, soon to be SP/4.  I wrote Don French, PD at KFWB Los Angeles and requested the DJs send a holiday greeting to Radio Cavalier, which later became radio tomahawk.

In 1959 Don French was the PD at KDWB in St Paul.  Don added my beta single Little Girl b/w Blue Blue Denims to the KDWB fab 40.

Greetings from, Johnny G, Larry McCormick, Bill Balance, Roger Christian, Gene Weed, Joe Yokum, Sam Riddle.
From 1958-1963 KFWB was the best top 40 station I ever heard.  Later when I returned I became close friends with Roger Christian and co-hosted rock n roll shows with Bill Balance.
