Norm Gregory Radio Scrapbook: KJR Personal List, 1969

in 1969, KJR, Radio Scrapbook

Here’s an obscure, arcane, esoteric document from the offices of KJR AM-950, Seattle. The more names you recognize on this April 1969 list the older you are.

The Doxie scanner was used to create this digital copy of this musty document.

I didn’t even notice they had the same address.

Did you notice anyone missing from the list?? (Hint: it’s a air staff member . . . and it’s not Lan, he didn’t return until June 1971)

Jim Martin ?

Gary didn’t arrived at KJR until July 1969.

Jim Martin is the correct answer. The story, at the time, was that the 9 p.m. to Midnight guy was living in his car . . . and — this was way before cell-phones — he didn’t have a phone number. Which was the still the case when he moved into an apartment in my building. When the station wanted to get a hold of “Big Jim” they would call me and I would go down and knock on his door. Jim would peek out the crack of his door (of his empty -no furniture- unit) and take the message. I don’t believe I was ever invited in.

What a great story. I had no idea. I knew of a weekend guy at KAYE who was sleeping out in the rain.

Yeah . . .

Remember when you could tell what county cars were from by their Washington state licenses plates? I think they were arranged by population . . . thus King County residents had AAA on their plates.
