Jim Pewter 1970


Jim was a rocker before the radio.  In the 60s to AFKN then Los Angeles radio.

But, let's start with a question "Do you wanna dance?"




Don Tracy 1980

Don Tracy in Hartford


A few years ago I had a chance to chat with Don.  I wish I'd have taped that.  Interesting guy.  Longtime AFRTS favorite.  Right now, some magic.

Joe Ferguson 1983




Joe Ferguson from Portland OR KUPL radio was part of the 1983 experiment when AFRTS had jocks from around the country record shows.  Bob Moke and Danny Kramer from Salt Lake City were some of the others.  The deal was supposed to be 13 weeks.  Whoever was after Joe turned out to not be available and Joe got another 13 weeks.

A couple of years ago he asked me if I'd be interested in all of the shows on transcription disks.  He wanted the opportunity for us to hear them again.  I'm very thankful.

Turn Back the Clock 1958


Just scored a LOT of these.  Andy and Virginia Mansfield with their view of oldies, from Andy's personal collection.

John Doremus 1967


What an incredible voice. Mr Doremus began this style of late night radio on WMAQ Chicago and syndicated on the BIG stations. He also 'invented' in flight music.





AFN Bremerhaven 1968 - Paul Hennessey


Left to right are SP5 Dave Stewart (later became a SGM), SP5 Paul Wetterhahn (aka Paul Drake), myself SP5 and SP5 Dick Dalrymple (not sure of spelling). 

A little while ago we posted AFN Bremerhaven in 1968. Paul Hennessey was there and sent some great memories of AFN Bremerhaven in 1968.   "I never worked as a dj after my AFN experience. I felt very fortunate to have been able to do it back then. I’m 72 years young and living in the MO Ozarks for the past 13 years. Also, am trying to get some screenplays I’ve written made into movies. Haven’t been able to make the right connections yet even though I worked at SAG Union Headquarters for 20 years from 1984-2004."  It must be morning, it's time for the Bremerhaven Bugle Call!
