Hey Ross

You probably don't remember me, but we worked together briefly [though only for a week or two]. 

I think I was the only remaining Hurlebus employee still in place when Piedmont took control of the station.

They had me stay, but only briefly as the new broom swept the place clean and sent me out the door.

I'm still not sure if I can make it on the 12th, but I'm going to try.

So I thought I'd better speak up at this late date.  Better safe than sorry.  

btw....I may bring a friend with me.

Thanks to Ross for cluing us all in on the event and thank you to the current owners and staff at WJMA for including us radio has-beens in the party.

It was good to meet the "new" people and really good to see the "old" people again.

The 'JMA 70th birthday party was a lot of fun.  We had a beautifully decorated setting with lots of good food and even Swag Bags!!!  (The Oscars have nothing on us)
Sorry that many of you couldn't make it.

Subject: [WJMA] Happy Birthday

At high noon on September 10, 1949 WJMA began broadcasting to Central Virginia. There have been many changes over the years. The original AM station is now WVCV, but it’s still broadcasting from Orange on 1340.

There will be a party on Thursday September 19 from 5 to 7 at Carver Tech Center on US 15 between Orange and Culpeper. All former employees are invited. If you plan to be there, please post here. The station needs a head count for the caterer by mid-day on Thursday the 12th.

Here’s the list thus far:

Gary Dillon
Mary Thompson
Lennie & Mary Ann Cowherd
Ross & Carol Hunter
Phil & Lillian Goodwin
Elizabeth Verrocchio
Phil Audibert

I’d be happy to add your name.

I'm an alum of WCVA. I met a few folks from WJMA during my time in Culpeper. Some of my best days in radio were spent there. 
Happy anniversary to everyone from Radio Orange.

There will be a party on Thursday September 19 from 5 to 7 at Carver Tech Center on US 15 between Orange and Culpeper. All former employees are invited. If you plan to be there, please post here. The station needs a head count for the caterer by mid-day on Thursday the 12th.

Here’s the list thus far:

Gary Dillon
Mary Thompson
Lennie & Mary Ann Cowherd
Ross & Carol Hunter
Phil & Lillian Goodwin
Elizabeth Verrocchio
Phil Audibert

I’d be happy to add your name.

Re: the end of Sonny, Sam, and Frank

What pleasure to see these all-so-familiar names from my yesteryears in broadcasting. Thanks for being an "alert reader."

Subject: [WJMA] the end of Sonny, Sam, and Frank

I saw an article in today’s Washington Post saying 85 year old Sonny Jurgensen is retiring from broadcasting. He’s the last member of a great broadcast team of Frank Herzon, Sam Huff, and Sonny to retire. I think WJMA probably carried all the Washington Redskins games that team broadcast…except for the Super Bowls.


A couple of quotes from the article:

Jurgensen was the lone holdover in the booth from those glory years after Herzog was unceremoniously ousted and replaced by Larry Michael in 2004, and Huff, 78 and in failing health, stepped away before the 2013 season.

Jurgensen demonstrated a propensity for predicting plays before they happened before Tony Romo was forming complete sentences, and his banter with Huff was both entertaining and informative. It was common for Redskins fans in the area, this reporter included, to mute the volume on the TV and turn up the radio to hear their familiar laughter and voices, along with Herzog’s simple call every time a Washington player crossed the goal line: “Touchdown, Washington Redskins!

— In the golden age of sports television in Washington, D.C., Sonny Jurgensen sat in a booth with Frank Herzog, who is the best play-by-play guy ever, and then he sat on a set with Glenn Brenner — brilliant and funny — and then he sat on a set with George Michael, who, I think more than either of the other guys, made sports an industry in this city and was innovative in ways that the others weren’t. The three giants … and Sonny was a partner to all of them.
