JACK PARNELL [ex WHBQ- PD/DJ] (Memphis, TN) Subject: “Sinatra & Friends”! Hi Jim: I wanted to make you aware of an excellent 4 hour 45 minute retrospective on Sinatra that our friend Wink Martindale has produced. It’s titled “Sinatra & Friends – Remembering An American Legend”, a perfect tribute to “The Voice”. And just in time for Sinatra’s Centennial/100th birthday Saturday, December 12th. Wink is making the show available to radio stations for $250.00. I’m sending a separate document listing words and music. The story is told in segments that run roughly 15 minutes each. And is not chronological. I’ll ask Wink to send you the show via Hightail so you can hear it for yourself. FYI – Wink tells me some stations are airing the show in segments…. mixed with their regular programming. Wink will be happy to produce personalized promos for each station. I hope you’ll give this a mention in your Jim Rose Remembers Radio feature column. Thanks, and an advance HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Jack Parnell- Former disk Jockey-WHBQ Radio, Memphis (1958-1971)

DAVID FAULKNER [KTNS-1600 Plano/KFJZ-870 Ft. Worth] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Tony Williams. Jim, Yesterday I heard that our friend Tony Williams passed away on October 24th. I know that you guys kept in touch and you often included emails from Tony in your newsletter. He will be missed. I became friends with Tony first through the old radio discussion board and later by way of facebook. Our conversations on FB often became threads of 50 to 75 comments that were mostly he and I bantering back and forth about radio, religion, politics, whatever the topic of the day was. Several times I said that he and I should’ve had a team show. That was a comment that he would always “like.” Maybe in the next life. Tony always had my back and yours. May he rest in peace. Take Care, David Faulkner
TRIVIA ANSWER: On November 4, 1916 David Sarnoff proposes a radio music box for radio reception. A 1916 Sarnoff memo mentions a radio music box scheme: I have in mind a plan of development which would make radio a ‘household utility’ in the same sense as the piano or phonograph. The idea is to bring music into the house by wireless. The ‘Radio Music Box’ can be supplied with amplifying tubes and a loud speaking telephone, all of which can be neatly mounted in one box.
DAVID HOUSE (Ft. Worth-North Richland Hills, TX) Subject: History of the car radio. Hi, Jim. Hope all is well. You probably know all this, but I thought I’d forward it to you. And what’s with all this “Bull” stuff? Why not celebrate Southern roots with something like “The Sty.” 🙂 David House; Freelance Writer; Member: SPJ, Online News Association
JOHN WALTON [Walton & Johnson Show] (Houston-Brookshire, TX) Subject: Johnny Shannon. I will send you a rundown on the state of the business…little guy vs the clusters… Johnny and I would see each other every day at shift change…I believe it was 1979-1980. KTSA was #1 in San Antonio from the crappiest studios in the world. John Walton
CLINT EASTWOOD [Harry Callaghan in Sudden Impact] (1983) Go ahead, make my day.
