Thanks for the memories Charlie.

Mary Turner 1992



It was a scandal.  In the early 80s when the network started the Mary Turner show.  Loud Rock and Roll.  What will the generals say?  We'll find out.  Mary brought her KMET show to the world and it was a very good thing.

Andy Mansfield - 1958

Andy Mansfield and Kay Starr
 

Turn Back the Clock was a fascinating show.  Andy and Virginia Mansfield were playing the songs of 20 and 30 years ago. Of course in the mid-50s that could mean Al Jolson and acoustic cylinders.  Let's revisit 1958 and Turn Back The Clock.


Roland Bynum 1973


Here's Roland, with something a little bit different for the United States Air Force.

Gary Owens - 1969

.

 
From the "familiar love theme" to the ongoing silliness.  Gary did some wonderful radio. Gery's last big job was the announcer on AntennaTV.  On this show Gary has some guest to talk about old movies. He'll be missed.

Chris Noel 1967


The Date With Chris project is up to show 81.  Some nice radio.

Thanks Chris, for sharing!



Joe Ferguson 1983


Joe Ferguson is back with 1983.  A while back Joe donated these shows to the archive and it's quite a feeling to run the same disks that I ran three decades ago.  Thanks Joe!!


John Doremus 1967


Jose Fritz did a very nice writeup about the life of John Doremus.


Now some music for the dinner hour:


AFRS Iceland 1971

We've located Karl Phillips!

Before I joined the Navy in 1970 I was a part time gofer at WQXI 790 in Atlanta where I learned ratio from some of the greats...Skinny Bobby Harper...Randy Robins (who is still a close friend here in the Atlanta area) ..Bob Bolton, Barry Chase. Went into Navy and went to Iceland as first duty station. Found my way to the quanset hut where AFRTS was and got them to let me go on air all nights on my time off from my regular job as a CT (communications technician) on the base. Loved it and yes we did have fans. The board was old - big cumbersome and what I would call a boat anchor. Found out later DJ Bob Kingsley was there when he was in the service and saw where he had actually carved his name in the control board....


Went to my next duty station in San Juan (guess they wanted to thaw me out) after a year in Iceland. I was there for 2 years and was able to get part time jobs at WBMJ 1190 (air name Scott Brady) and - WIAC-FM and a new start up station WRAI before discharge in 1974. Went back to Atlanta although got offers from those stations in PR.

Went to work for WGST here in Atlanta and lost that job because they went NEWS. Worked for MCA Records for a while and got out of radio. I spent about 8 years in radio. Should have stuck with it. I did do a little time in 2000 at WLKQ -FM with Randy Robins here in Atlanta.


I have been here at Ricoh since 1976 and about to hang it up soon. I sure miss radio. I am however a voting member of the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame since 2007 so I still dabble in it.
