Wolfman Jack 1975


I was visiting a radio pal "Somewhere I have a Wolfman ET, want it?"  That's an easy question.  The disk was trashed and I've spent most of a year trying to get it to track.  The recruiting shows were recorded at the big deal recording studios rather than AFRTS.  Wolf is on a tear...

Mary Turner 1984


Time for another visit with Mary Turner, She started at the network in 1981 or so, bringing a new perspective.  It was rocking...

Mary checked in last time with good words about her AFRTS time. 


Andy Mansfield 1963


Andy Mansfield loved his oldies, but when you start doing an oldies show in the 1950s we hear big band and before.  His first show was with his wife but always it was some of his favorites from his collection.



Roland Bynum 1980


Time for some soulin' with Roland.  Roland still makes the magic at KJLH, Los Angeles.


Bill Stewart 1968

Bill loved his jazz.  For a while he was a very successful rock jock but this was his music.  He was having a "Musical Bill Affair" well into the 1970s.

Jim Pewter has your favorite oldies.  These guys did such a great job with Command Information.  I was just listening to this one and realized I had spent a minute being interested in a spot about hepatitis .  I would have been in Korea around this time.  Street vendors, things swimming in the water.  I did avoid the tattoo parlors..

Jim is also part of the greatest airteam ever at http://rogercarrollbestsoundsintown.com

The music's great.  C'mon down to the malt shop..
