He was another KMPC guy and made some great radio. In 1967 Johnny hosted Small World. That program had been around for years as sort of a clone of NBCs Monitor. Johnny added a lot of personality. We lost Mr. Grant in 2008.
On this broadcast, a report from Vietnam.

Randy at AFKN
Randy Ashurst sent this along. "Okinawa 79-83 was my 6th AFRT tour and I started on the morning show there as I had long been on the air in the service by then. In Nov81 the marine running radio said we had to do a special broadcast each holiday coming up. Next one was Veteran's Day and no takers so he went alphabetically. Me. so I did a half hr show that was super. It won best in the Pacific, then best in air force then DOD with a Thomas Jefferson award for special broadcast.

Lately there's been a lot of AFKN coming in. Good thing. Here's a 1986 visit with Ed Autry.
usually did the afternoon show called 'Rollin' Home, but this aircheck was done during a week when I was 'sitting in' for Air Force Sergeant Tim Johnson, who happened to be sick that week. So, this aircheck is from the morning drive-time show called 'Morning Watch'.
