I was there in 1971 when KJR celebrated it’s 50th birthday with fireworks. And I was back in 1981 when it was time to celebration 60 years. Here are the salutes to four different decades of KJR, Seattle.

I have “scoped” the recording. That is most of the music has been edited out. And . . . the quality of the recording is marginal . . . the tape does drag here and there. (Aren’t we glad that ‘tape’ is gone?)
