World Of Folk Music 1969

The World of Folk Music was an interesting show. First Oscar Brand did a conventional Folkie show, then the ones I've heard were great profiles of country music.  A couple of weeks ago someone asked for one.  A few days ago, Dan sent one.  I can take a hint.  Take a listen to  Hugh Jeffrey tell the story of Merle Haggard.

Mary Helen Barro 1983

I remember the Canal Zone..  It sure would be nice to stretch out on the beach.  Mary Helen Barro has the music.  You'll have to bring a beverage.

Hootenavy 1967

The services had a lot of recruiting shows running on US stations.  Several of those were picked up by AFRTS.  WSMs Ralph Emery did "Hootenavy", today with Ferlin Husky.

Charlie Tuna Christmas 1978

Christmas away from home could be a difficult time, Charlie and the rest of the team made home not quite so far away.  I'm off to the mess hall for lobster...

Here's Charlie Tuna and a 1978 Christmas show.

Ed Masters, International Man Of Mystery

I was paging through an AFKN yearbook.  I knew all of the places and some of the people. Ed Masters I've always wondered about.  Ed came to AFKN from FEN (prior to John Buey) during the Korean War, was there when I was 25 years later.  Well over 30 years as a DAC is a story in itself. Ed's legs were were handicapped.  He never was.  His pain had him awake and monitoring the network 24 hours a day.  I'd make a mistake. Ed's on the batphone patiently explaining how to do it correctly.  I learned a lot.  At the time it was said that he was a rising star in radio, his niece said that a motorcycle accident put an end to that.  Normally such things are easy enough to get details about.  Ed just seems to start with the Korean war, 


All That Jazz 1968

Sometimes there's a show with zero information.  Jack Taylor was playing some smoky jazz in the 1960s
