J. Walter Beethoven Update

in 1961, KJR, Radio Scrapbook

A couple years ago I posted a 1961 Billboard magazine clipping announcing the arrival of J. Walter Beethoven at KJR for a mid day shift.

The other day I heard from “Wally.”

I attended high school in Golden City ,Mo. and spent a lot of my spare time Rolling With Johnny Dolan, Phil Jay , and” J.Walter( do-do-do-do ) Beethoven” on Seventy -Onederful WHB radio in Kansas City ,Mo. .I’m very happy to read that Walter is alive and well ! Do you know anything about whats going on with Dolan & Phil Jay ? They were my radio heroes along with the musicians of the day, of course !
