Chris Noel - 1969

Chris Noel in Pleiku 1968

Chris really stepped to the plate, did a wonderful show and went to the troops.  Today she still supports the troops in need with her homeless shelter for veterans. Vetsville

Inner Sanctum - 1949

This disk was played may times on our stations in Canada.  A great mystery program never really ages.  We still ran them in the 1970s and 80s.  This program was originally broadcast in 1949 and rebroadcast on AFRTS may times.

"The Unburied Dead". A good story about a woman who first finds out that she's not who she thinks she is, then, that she's been dead for six years, and finally, that she's wanted for murder!

Roger Carroll - 1978

Today it is Roger, with the Happy Hour and memories of 1978.
"Thom there was a young attractive production lady who worked on a TV show I announced her boy friend was an artist at Disney . They both listened to me on KMPC It was a birthday gift I can not remember what show it was or her name .I now walk a little slower , memory is not what it used be also repeat things Dad get a hearing aid (you want something at Rite Aid ) BUT I sure do remember she was very attractive I think many of the attractive production ladies maybe were hand picked may be some of those ladies are on FB they would be old today the ones I worked with."
And it has a place of honor at Roger's
Thank you once again RC!

WBG - Fort Bliss

Part of our history that seems to be gone was the stations in the United States.  A lot of posts had radio,  Seemingly supported by AFRS.  In El Paso, presumably Fort Bliss was WBG.  Many of the big country acts performed there.

Peter Birch was a dancer, choreographer and musician who most famously directed Captain Kangaroo for 25 years.  In January 1949 he performed at WBG.

AFN Derrick in the Morning

Derrick has checked in.  Welcome!

I was very happy to find your site and the page where you featured my Zfm show. I was the morning show guy from 1994 - 1995 at AFN HQ.

On one occasion I helped SRA Angie Pianga re-launch Spagndahlem's radio station which had been dormant for decades. I was there with a fan dressed as a chicken to do the inaugural show. A few years earlier Angie and I were radio broadcasters at AFKN in Seoul, Korea.
