CHRISTOPHER ROACH [Chris Lane] (Luzerne, PA) Subject: Jim Rose Remembers Radio. Jim, Thanks for the quick response. I embarked on my career in broadcasting in radio in 1989. Several years later, after “radio” as we know it changed dramatically, I made the switch to behind the scenes TV (Master Control/Engineering) in 2001. The radio bug still exists in me. I’m always following what’s happening in the biz. My primary hobby is collecting airchecks and jingles (Surprise…right, LOL). If there’s anything you look for in particular (especially PAMS jingles…I have a large collection of those), let me know. It’s my pleasure to share with others. I’m looking forward to reading your newsletter…this week’s was super! Thanks, Chris

CHUCK DUNAWAY [ex WABC-770, WKY-930, KILT-610, KLIF-1190] (Houston-Katy, TX) I knew Jack Ruby…he’d bring coffee to the KLIF studios and beg us to mention his club…we got special treatment at the club too. The shooting of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby on November 24, 1963 was broadcast live on national television and is the first known human killing seen live on TV. Oswald was brought to the basement of the Dallas police headquarters on his way to a more secure county jail. A crowd of police and press with live television cameras rolling gathered to witness his departure. As Oswald came into the room, Jack Ruby emerged from the crowd and fatally wounded him with a single shot from a concealed .38 revolver. Ruby, who was immediately detained, claimed that rage at Kennedy’s murder was the motive for his action. Millions of Americans saw the shooting happen on live television.
CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI – ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Survey from KFJZ. I once picked up a Playlist put out by KFJZ from Melody Hop at North Park. I remember it had a Gene Kelly with a photograph, so wondering whether it was the person that Dave Michaels mentioned? I thought how much to get a Movie Star to do a radio show. I think the others shown were a George Erwin, Mark E. Baby, Dave Tucker. But memory cabin play tricks. Like I have recorded my playing and singing. My Instrumentals sound like what I expect but not my Vocals…probably why Ron Chapman told me I should think about Voice Work and/ or build a Character when I asked about going into Broadcasting. Ron Chapman was the MC at a show at Sanger Harris with Ten Wheel Drive and Rotary Connection. They had roped off the area under the Chandelier at the store. Anyway they were having a drawing for a raffle and Ron chose me to hold the basket with the tickets. Charles George
