Johnston Island?


Jeremy sent along an interesting picture

"I was going through some photos I got off Ebay awhile ago and found the attached photo of George Ingham and another Airman doing a radio show.

The locale is a tropical island but I can't figure out which Island it might be some of the photos were of Johnston Island so there's a strong possibility that's where the station was especially is there was a radio station there. I've attached a high resolution scan."

Only thing I can tell for sure is that some of the ETs are sleeved in the early 1960s sleeves, but those were around forever (We had boxes of them in Panama in the early 1980s.

Do you know where that studio was?

Laurie Allen 1996

Laurie fell in love with radio at age 7 when she toured her hometown station in Morris, Minnesota. The resulting radio career began while in high school, working “up and down the dial” at stations in Omaha, St. Louis and San Francisco before finally coming 'home' to Los Angeles to hold down 7p-12p at KIIS-FM, on to KNX-FM, Magic 106, Power 106, Armed Forces Radio and most recently, in syndication at Dial Global Radio Network. She joined the family at GoCountry in December of 2008. Off hours, Laurie loves hiking, cooking and pursuing her hobby of collecting coffee stains in the shapes of celebrities.
