Norm Gregory Radio Scrapbook: 1973 Music Industry Policy at KJR, KJRB

in 1973, KJR, Radio Scrapbook

I remember Mr Smith, with cigar, coming to the KJR music meeting, Summer 1973, to tell us there would new rules when dealing with record promotion people. The only specifics I remember is that lunches and gifts had to be limited to $25. No more junkets, vacations, etc. I do remember that enforcement of the new guidelines slowly faded away. This Vic Stredicke column appeared in the Seattle Times on Sunday, August 19, 1973.

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

What is going on here? I have been digging through My Collection of photos, news clippings and other documents from my 35 years in radio. The Collection can be sorted:

By radio station: KPUG • KJRB • KJR • KZOK • KQFM • KOMO • KJR-FM

By year: 1961 • 1963 • 1967 • 1968 • 1969 • 1970 • 1971 • 1972
1973 • 1974 • 1975 • 1976 • 1977 • 1978 • 1979 • 1980 • 1981 • 1994

I remember this column. There is a minor era on Sandy Hamilton. He worked at KAYE, Puyallup from 63 till 65 and was replaced by Herb Smiles. I don,t think he worked in Lakewood.
