Brad's olden days
I'm writing to let you know that the Bay Area Radio Museum
is getting ready to go live in a few weeks, and you play a
major part of our first archive feature.
The aircheck is from 1260/KYA on May 29, 1970, and features
Bwana Johnny and Pete McNeal doing their morning shows. During
the Bwana Johnny portion of the broadcast, you anchor a news
report updating the situation on Alcatraz involving the takeover
by American Indians. Larry Brownell interviews a spokesman
for the Indians as part of the report.
We're still building our website and adding more features,
but I thought you might enjoy a "sneak preview."
The feature is here
if you'd like to give it a listen. Feel free to invite your
listeners to stop by, too!
With best wishes,
A very well-done page! I haven't listened to the airchek
yet - partly because I can barely stand to hear myself on
tape - but I will listen soon. Far's I can remember, everything
on the page is accurate. Nicely written, too. Thanks a million
for letting me know!
for 144K plaque
During the Alcatraz event, my boss put together a plaque

chopper, me interviewing an "Indian" (who was
a plant, remind me to tell you about that sometime), a photo
of me as a black man, and the printout of the ratings report
when KYA made #1 in San Francisco.
