TONY WILLIAMS [WKY-930/KRLD-1080] (Dallas-Richardson, TX) Jim, I am 63, but when my family lived in the small town of Holdenville, OK, about 90 miles SE of Oklahoma City, my dad had to erect a large beam antenna to pick up TV from Oklahoma City. The NBC affiliate, WKY-TV, was the only one with a clear signal. The ABC station, KOCO-TV…nothing but snow. The CBS station, KWTV-TV, only fair. Tony

JAY WALKER [KJKK FM 100.3/KTSA-550 KTFM FM/Jay Walker Prod] (Dallas/McKinney, TX) Subject: Radio Killed Radio. Jim I wanted to take a moment to respond to a recent email in your much appreciated news letter. I quote: “Today’s radio is really “narrowcasting“ instead of broadcasting. Competition from satellite radio and the internet have pretty much ended what we all were a part of when Top 40 was King.” I respectfully disagree. The difference between markets in the mid 60’s compared markets in the mid 90’s made narrowcasting a necessity. When station counts in radio markets increased tenfold or more narrow-casting was how you focused on YOUR audience. With 60+ stations in a market like Dallas in the 90’s and now, the days of “all things to everyone cradle to grave” had passed. The bottom line, Radio Killed Radio When management decided to program to the rating service and NOT program to PEOPLE was when radio cut its own throat. Best regards and stay safe!

JANET LYNN [fine Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame singer] (Austin, TX) Hi Ya’ll. I have enjoyed all the emails about Johnny (Gimble). I have so many memories of working with him, his son, Dick, on bass, and spending ski trips with whole Gimble Family. I was Johnny’s “girl singer” for 5 years. We spent time together on every type of show one can imagine from Silver Dollar & Broken Spoke in Austin, events in Waco/Dallas, opening for Kitty Wells at rodeos, opening for Willie, the Electric Horseman Movie Release, and doing a lot of conventions/private party dates in TX and TN. You name it, we played it. Blessings to all as I know he would want to be remembered so fondly. Janet Lynn Member of Texas Music Hall of Fame, 1999 Member of Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame, 2000.
BOB WILLS (March 6, 1905 – May 13, 1975) I think I was singing when I was born.
