We just pasted the 8th anniversary of our losing Jerry Kay . . known as The Legend in the 1960s.
Friend and fellow KJR alum Tom Murphy mentions how The Leg got the nickname.
One of my favorite memories of Jerry on KJR in the mid 1960s was when he was doing news for Larry Lujack in the 6 to 9 p.m. slot.
KJR did news at :55 and headlines at :30.
One night at the bottom of the hour Jerry came on with: The Vietnam War continues . . . I am The Legend. Dead air . . . Larry came on saying . .. Ah Jer . . is that it? . . . more dead air . . then the song came on.
