Whistler 1962





Halloween's coming up and time for a mystery with the Whistler. By the 60s, of course these were repeats.  With some breaks, the Whistler was on in the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.  The shows hold up surprisingly well.




Charlie Williams 1972

 



After Joe Allison, KFOXs Charlie Williams hosted the Country Corner for a short while.

Incredible.  From 1971 til the 1990s we were lucky enough to have the Charlie Tuna Show


 

Rebel Randall 1952

 


Ladies on the radio, from GI Jill, Chris Noel, Mary Turner, LaRita Shelby, Laurie Allen.  Voices from home.  During the Korean War that voice was Rebel Randall.

Huge audience, doing a civilian show in the states where families could call their troop overseas.  Eventually picked up by AFRTS to do a show.  "Jukebox USA".  It only ran for a couple of years.  Rumor at the time was she was talking too sexy for the brass...
