The Other Air War 1967

 Sometimes I find the unexpected.  In the 60s, we received news panel shows on vinyl ETs.

In a bunch of them was this.  Jerry Golden and a team from WLS in Chicago produced a documentary about the air war in Vietnam.  Take listen to what can be done on recording tape...

Roger Carroll 1970


It was a long story but several years ago Roger wanted an internet station and I was thrilled to help.  He was in his 80s and still sharp as a whip.  I learned a lot and am grateful.

This is the show before Roger went to AFN to record some shows in 1970. from his original ET.  The Happy Hour continues!

Signature Sounds jingles


In 1978 we got the Signature Sounds jingles.  It's been a while.  These transcriptions had "locking grooves", so they're awful to transfer.  But fun to hear again!  Crank it up!

Garry had heard part of this before....

Tom Campbell AFRTS demo


Tom Campbell is one of the AFRTS-LA friends that's been great in keeping this whole thing running.

After serving in the United States Air Force, Campbell was hired for his first radio job, at KEEL in Shreveport, La., by Al Hart, who would later become a newscaster and radio personality in San Francisco. Campbell subsequently worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota and at WONE in Dayton, Ohio before his move to KYA San Francisco in 1967.

In 1971 was one of the periodic restructurings of AFRTS.  They were concerned we'd be rocking too hard..   AFRTS sent a demo...
