AFTN - Captain Madrack 1973

Before they made him use his real name, Ralph Gebes was Captain Madrack on AFTN Odapau, Thailand.  Take  a listen

Wolfman Jack - Xmas 1975




Here's a 1975 visit with the Wolfman.  It really is the most wonderful time of the year!  Mark sent this in last year.  Great stuff!




Tom Campbell 1971


The music was great and so was Tom Campbell.  Tom was one of the greatest one on one voices and through that was very successful being the voice of several great sponsors.

Thanksgiving 1944




Surprisingly hard to find Thanksgiving shows.  From 1944 Lionel Barrymore (Mr. Potter on It's a Wonderful Life)  and an all-star cast share the holidays.


My best to you and yours. 


AFVN Day after Thanksgiving 1970

On Thanksgiving it's hard to not think about home.  When Billy Williams was at AFVN a few years later, he found a station composite of the day after Thanksgiving with AFVN.  Nicely done.  Take a listen.

Gene Price 1975



Time to board the Country Express.  I hope you've got your boarding pass.


Ira Cook 1965




Here's Ira Cook with a show from 1965.  Ira was a WWII vet, with us a long time. I cannot get those stickers off.  Who's idea was that?



Jim Pewter 1967



Neil found us a bunch of late 60s Jim Pewter shows.  I'm very happy about that.  When you see something that might be interesting for all of us, drop me a note afrts@live.com 

Jim was an AFKN vet who shaped the world of music, his command of the oldies inspired a lot of people.  It's December 1967 "Let's Go"



Know Your Ally - China 1943

Here's an early 1943 production "Know Your Allies" about China.  At the time we even had stations there.  Those would be stories I'd love to hear. Times sure have changed.  No credits on the production but it sounds a lot like a young Marvin Miller

Rebel Randall 1952


During the Korean War, Rebel Randall did "Jukebox USA" a DJ show for the troops.  Her run with the network was much shorter than GI Jill or Chris Noel but it was good.
