Chris Noel - 1969


Chris Noel has memories on "A Date With Chris"

Don Browne has details "Date" was started expressly for the Vietnam War to counter AM broadcasting from "Hanoi Hanna". The first show with Chris Noel was aired 12 December 1966, 5-55:00, RP 23-7. As the Vietnam War began to wind down in 1969, the last AFRTS 13-week "flight" of 5-55:00 was 14-0 to 26-0 (Oct - Nov - Dec 1969). "Date" was demoted to "flights" of 1-55:00 and the last-ever Date With Chris AFRTS 13-week "flight" was 27-1 to 38-1 (Jan - Feb - Mar 1971).
