I've added Susan McCurry to the list. Susan worked in the sales department for both Arch and Digby...I think. I'll let Susan make corrections and bring us up-to-date on her life since leaving WJMA.

However, for some Christians, Christmas as a liturgical season stretches beyond 6 January.

In my tradition, it ends 11 January this time around.

Ross, if it makes you feel any better I think we used them 2 or 3 years. I remember using the 10" reels a couple of years anyway. I do recall you sitting back in Studio B surrounded by Christmas albums. In one of those quirks of memory that is unexplainable, I remember you mentioning that you had suggested to Arch that he re-
record the Burt MAO special due to the poor quality of some of the original records used. I don't think Arch ever went for that idea.

Working Christmas eve and day was strange. You just introduced the next sponser and then let the tape fly for 15 or 30 minutes. Even our news was cut way back.

Christmas music programming has always struck me as funny. There is a slow build-up week by week and day by day, and then WHAM on December 26th it is gone! At the stroke of midnight it is all out of date and Christmas music is then treated like rancid meat until about 10 months later.

Re: Christmas Music

A little off topic:

Isn't Christmas getting to be a little too early?

Yesterday, I saw a fully decorated Christmas tree in someone's bay window.

What will be left of Christmas by 25 December?

BTW, when was Thanksgiving? I guess that I missed it.

From the DCRTV.COM site:
Santa Alert - 11/13 - We hear that oldies WGRQ (95.9 FM) in Fredericksburg will crank up "continuous holiday favorites" at 12:01 AM on Friday 11/28. Through Christmas day. Still no word on when the non-stop holiday fare will start at other area usual Christmas outlets like WASH, WLIF, and WLTF. Stations in Rochester and Charlotte flipped to holiday tunes back about Halloween. And, this week, stations in Philadelphia and NYC have made the "ho ho ho" switch.....

Which brings me to the subject of Christmas music on WJMA.

I recall auditioning hours and hours of Christmas music and then spending many more hours recording the selections on 10" reel tape in an effort to make Chritmas eve and Christmas day programming a bit easier on everyone. I think that was the year prior to the sale of the station and Digby dumped the whole thing the following year.

In addition to the annual effort to sell 15 minute blocks of Chritmas music to air on Christmas eve and Christmas day, there were a number of other seasonal traditions: The Postmaster and Miss Message, Alfred Burt carols on Monday At One, the lengthy discussions on the right mix of Christmas tunes in the month leading up to Christmas, and of course the staff greetings that included Gene Bossieux's annual appearance on the air.

I remember one year dragging a Revox around to schools and churches to record Christmas concerts so we could air part of them on Chritmas eve and Chritmas day.

No doubt there are other things associated with the Christmas season that I'm forgetting.

signing off

Dominion Market Research staff <xhunter@...>
 

I was "Googling" around this afternoon and found this December 1997 email on a site call Airwaves. The topic of discussion was radio station sign offs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the mid-'80s, WPRW (1460) Manassas VA would sign off at midnight with the intro to the Beatles' "Sun King" as background to the usual legal/technical pronouncements, followed by the national anthem. Also in the '80s, WJMA AM/FM Orange, VA had what I thought was a pretty neat signoff that incorporated the Spaniels' "Goodnight Sweetheart" and the Beatles' "Good Night" together with a couple of movie clips that I couldn't recognize.

Star Date

Dominion Market Research staff <xhunter@...>
 

On the Star Date program I heard this morning I noted they are observing their 25th anniversary.

I don't remember the precise year, but WJMA was an early affiliate. That was when the program was offered free. When their grant expired, the University of Texas started charging for the program and we parted ways.

As long as we carried the Star Date we would get two sets of tapes...and have to pay to return two sets of tapes. Ater an exchange of letters, it turned out their computer system just could not understand that an AM/FM simulcast would only need one program tape.

Great article Ross.

In 1971 & 1972 the Redskin announcers were Mal Cambell with color,
and Steve Gilmartin on play-by-play (not sure of the spelling, may
have been Gill Martin) . Steve Gilmartin left after the '72 Super
Bowl year (I think), and Mal Cambell took over play-by-play for a
few years. Len Hathaway did color for a while. I don't recall Huff
that far back (as the story suggests) but he may have done pre or
post game stuff.

I lost track in the late '70s when I no longer listened to the radio
broadcasts.

Then I went to work for WJMA in the Fall of 1981. I worked most
Sunday afternoons and I remember well the 0-5 start and the 8-3
finish to that remarkable season. The next year (1982 season) they
won the Super Bowl over Miami, avenging their loss of 10 years
before. I did not realize that that was Sonny, Sam, and Frank's
first year together.

1981, 1982 and 1983 were incredible years for a sports fan to work
the board at WJMA. The Skins returned to the Super Bowl after
the '83 season, with results I won't dwell on.

The Baltimore Orioles took the Brewers to the final game of the
season to decide the division title in 1982, and then the O's went
all the way and won the World Series in 1983.

And...Ralph Sampson was in his prime for UVa Basketball.

It's interesting that Cameron Gray should have begun his broadcast career at WJMA just after (if I remember correctly) Digby stopped carrying the games. Now Cameron is the Executive Producer of the Skins Radio Network.

===========================================================================
By Bob Cohn
THE WASHINGTON TIMES


The radio birth of Sonny Jurgensen, Sam Huff and Frank Herzog in 1981 coincided with the birth of what is wistfully recalled as the Joe Gibbs Era.
Gibbs, the little-known assistant from the San Diego Chargers, became Washington's coach that year and lost his first five games. Then great things happened. The Redskins over the next decade reigned as one of the supreme organizations in the NFL. The only thing treated like a Super Bowl victory was a Super Bowl victory, not a win over Seattle in early November.
All that seems like a long time ago.
Actually, it was. With 23 seasons calling Redskins games together since starting on WMAL (630-AM), Sonny, Sam and Frank are believed to be the longest running radio team in the NFL.
"Most marriages don't last that long," said Andy Ockershausen, the former WMAL general manager who added Jurgensen to what was then a two-man crew of Herzog and Huff.
Things are a little different now. The Redskins have not gone to the Super Bowl since the 1991 season. In the five years since Dan Snyder bought the franchise from the Jack Kent Cooke family, mediocrity has exploded into periodic bursts of chaos and dysfunction that recently became the talk of the league. But amid the losing and changes in ownership, coaches and players, the familiar, even reassuring voices of Sonny, Sam and Frank (they are always "Sonny, Sam and Frank") have endured. They share the occasional joy and provide comfort to those who suffer along with them.
"We've outlived everybody," Huff said.
Viewers still turn down the TV and turn up the radio tuned to WJFK (106.7-FM), now the flagship station of the Redskins radio network. They overlook the one-second delay between the picture and the broadcast, as well as the occasional misidentified ballcarrier or tackler. Herzog still calls the action and eggs on Huff and Jurgensen, who still analyze and criticize and argue and exhort and feel a lot of pain. Your pain.
Redskins fans might need these guys more than ever. Sonny, Sam and Frank are hurting right along with everyone else in radio land. You think you've been upset? Jurgensen, the old quarterback, and Huff, the former middle linebacker, are both members of the NFL Hall of Fame and have been part of the Redskins family going back to 1964, when they joined the club via trades two weeks apart.
They vent, they emote, they provide company for your misery. They become more entertaining as their angst and ire increases, proving yet again that comedy is rooted in tragedy.
"I love those guys because they say it the way it is," said longtime listener Rich Eig-Tassiello, a private chef who lives in Gaithersburg. "They take something that could be really depressing and turn it into a humorous situation."
Sonny: Are the Redskins getting better or worse?
Sam: I take the Fifth Amendment.
The recent broadcasts have been marked by some recurring themes, such as the lack of pass protection and how mass substitutions hurt continuity.
"A guy makes a good play, and they take him out," grouses Huff, who was an every-down defender back when everyone was an every-down defender. The confusion on offense and quarterback Patrick Ramsey's apparent inability to call an audible without something bad happening drove them crazy. Whenever Ramsey backed up and checked to a new play, Sonny and Sam joined in unison, "Uh-oh, here we go again."
During a loss to Buffalo a few weeks ago, Huff threatened to jump out of the press box window if the Redskins committed another false start penalty. Which, in fact, they did (he didn't jump). In the Cowboys' loss, Huff's mounting exasperation bubbled up when the Redskins came out in a three-man defensive front.
Sam: They do it and they do it and they do it. They get beat on it every time, and they don't get tired of doing it. (Pause). I get tired of seeing it.
Speaking of the Redskins' situation in general before the Seattle game, Huff said off the air, "This is very discouraging. Very, very discouraging. It's frustrating to see them do silly things. We're hurting for them. We've been there. We know you don't win every time, but you do give your [darnedest] every minute you're out there. You almost feel sorry for them."
After the Seattle game, Huff, like the Redskins themselves and all their fans, brightened a bit. "They did some things they should have been doing for a long time," he said.
Sonny: The quarterback does not have the luxury of calling his own plays. It's a coaching game. They're choreographing it on the sidelines. And they're not the ones getting knocked on their fannies.
Jurgensen is close with the owner. Sonny, in fact, is one of Snyder's "consultants." But he said that does not alter what comes out on the air, which reflects the way the Redskins are playing.
"It's the frustration," Jurgensen said. "It really is. It's so frustrating when you see what they're doing. I watch practice all the time, and I see what they're capable of. It really is hard. There's no continuity, no consistency in what they do. ... You just say what you want to say."
Huff, whose voice is curiously high-pitched for a tough guy, and Jurgensen, who goes about a half-octave higher, get so involved in the game they sometimes talk at the same time like two guys arguing at the bar. So you knew things were bad when the Redskins rendered them speechless, perhaps for the first time, during the Dallas loss. After the Cowboys made it 21-6, Herzog, a veteran D.C. sportscaster who works at WUSA-TV (Channel 9) and is known for his local charity work, asked his partners, "OK, Hall of Famers, where do the Redskins go from here?"
Sam said nothing. Sonny said nothing.
"That's what I thought," Herzog said.
Later, off the air, Huff said, "We want to take it to the edge, but we know not to take it over the edge."
Huff usually argues on behalf of, or against the defense. Jurgensen mostly handles the offense. Their on-air demeanors reflect their playing personas. Huff is all emotion, quick to react. A linebacker's mentality. Jurgensen is more cool and analytical. "A quarterback has to be in control of what's going on," he said. "A linebacker wants to hit somebody over the bench."
Sam (loudly): You know what? You send all those guys in there, three or four guys, and what happens? They don't know what defense they're in!
Sonny (quietly): They were in a three-man line, a prevent defense. They prevented them from throwing, so you run for the first down.
"I'm riding on the back of [linebacker] LaVar Arrington's shoulder pads, so to speak, and Sonny is looking at [quarterback] Patrick [Ramsey]," Huff said. "But we cross over a lot. When you're an offensive guy, you have to attack the defense. And the defensive guy has got to attack the offense."
The chemistry of the Redskins might be questioned, but there is no question it exists in the radio booth. It's both obvious and real. And the chemistry isn't simply there because these guys have been together for so long. "There's a real affection," Herzog said.
"There's no jealousy whatsoever," Ockershausen said.
"Sam and I are so close," Jurgensen said. "He's like a brother. I know what Sam's thinking and vice-versa. I can finish a sentence for him. And Frank has been there to keep us sane all these years."
Asked why it sounds like the three are having so much fun, even when the Redskins stink, Herzog said, "Listen, that's a no-brainer. How can you not have fun? I'm sitting with two guys that played the position better than anybody and getting the advantage of their expertise."
Said Huff, "We have the highest respect for each other. I've never seen anybody who knows more about quarterbacking than Sonny. He's more than a beautiful mind. He has a brilliant mind."
Huff isn't shy about touting his own expertise, either.
"Nobody knows the game better than us," he said. "Nobody."
Jurgensen tries to make it sound like "we're sitting around, talking about the game [as] if we weren't on the radio," he said. "I think that's why people like it. They know if things are not going right, we're gonna criticize it, and if they're going well we're gonna get on the bandwagon."
Huff helped spur the NFL's growth in the 1960s while playing for the New York Giants. He agreed to be part of a CBS documentary called "The Violent World of Sam Huff" and was Jurgensen's rival before they became teammates. When that happened, they hit it off immediately. "I have respect for quarterbacks," Huff said. "I hit 'em and I hurt 'em, but I never lost respect for them."
Both were among the vanguard of professional athletes to get involved in broadcasting while still playing, mainly because they were smart. When Vince Lombardi became coach of the Redskins in 1969, he immediately sought counsel from Jurgensen and made Huff a player-coach in what would be the linebacker's final season.
As a marketing executive for Marriott, Huff made an easy transition from football. He now owns and breeds horses, puts on races in his native West Virginia and owns a studio that produces racing-related programs. He started doing Redskins games on the radio in 1973 with Len Hathaway, then Dan Lovett and then Herzog, who also called Washington Bullets games years ago.
Jurgensen retired from the Redskins in 1974, and worked for CBS until someone decided to put him in a booth with Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier. "But Brookie didn't want it," said Jurgensen, who was subsequently fired.
Huff recalls Ockershausen telling him he had a chance to get Jurgensen to join the radio team. How did he feel about that? Huff said he told him, "Andy, I think Frank and I have a good broadcast. If you put Sonny on with us, we'll have a great broadcast."
Naturally, not everyone loves the trio, which comprises one of the oldest broadcast crews in all of professional sports. Huff and Jurgensen are 69 and Herzog is 58, and some in the business wonder whether they are out of touch with newer, younger listeners. Herzog is decidedly old-school - down, distance and formation. His call when the Redskins score - "Touchdown, Washington Redskins" - is unfashionably low-key in a time when play-by-play announcers are trying to get their touchdown calls on ESPN's SportsCenter. But for some listeners, Herzog and Huff sometimes get a little tangled up with identifying players, requiring Jurgensen, a stickler for accuracy, to step in.
Rumors of change have popped up, especially with Herzog in the final year of his contract. He said he has been told nothing about next year. Huff and Jurgensen would seem to be an entity, given the relationship between Jurgensen and Snyder, who grew up listening to the crew and is said to be a big fan. But no one is saying what will happen. WJFK general manager Alan Leinwand did not return several telephone calls.
But it's hard to imagine anyone else in the booth. Regardless of how their technical proficiency is assessed, Sonny, Sam and Frank are an institution. To Huff, the supreme compliment came a few years ago from noted WMAL radio personality Ed Walker, who is blind. Walker told Huff, "You guys make me see. When you guys broadcast, I can see the game."

'88 OCHS graduate a radio star


By Maria Pace
Review Staff Writer

Cameron Gray has gone a long way toward fulfilling his dreams since his days as a part time DJ on 96.7 FM in Orange.
Gray moved to Orange when he was 13 and entered OCHS as a freshman in 1984.
"I was from Long Island originally and didn't like having to live 'in the country' at first but really grew to love it and look back at some great times. I would definitely do it all over the same way," said Gray.
"I knew I wanted to be on the radio since I was a little kid on Long Island, recording local radio stations on my Realistic Cassette Recorder and then doing my own DJing along with the music on the radio. That was just my first real taste of it and I was officially hooked," said Gray.
Gray was able to really explore his passion on the air, right here in Orange County.
"I was 'Kyle Stevens' for a few months in the spring and early summer of 1988, just as I was graduating. I loved every minute of it. I'll never forget the first song of my shift was Billy Ocean's 'Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car.' "
"My parents owned Big Scoops ice cream parlor on the circle in Gordonsville and we spent the majority of our time there when not in school," said Gray.
"My best memories are Latin Club trips with my old friend Spencer Richardson and our teacher Betty Hogan, frequent trips with friends to Charlottesville and Fredericksburg, and wonderful classes taught by Larry Arbogast and Gail Syrontynski. Most of my friends were in the band even though I did not play any sort of instrument," said Gray.
Gray graduated George Mason University in 1992 with a BA in Speech Communications and went on to receive a master's degree in Telecommunications from George Mason in 1997.
"I was the assistant producer of the G. Gordon Liddy Show for about 8 years. I was producer of the Sports Junkies for a year and a half until they left to do mornings at another station here in DC. I stuck around here until I was promoted to my new position in May."
Gray is currently the Operations Director for WJFK-FM in Fairfax and the executive producer of the Washington Redskins Radio Network. He is also an adjunct professor at GMU where he teaches classes in Radio Production.
"I have worked on the Skins games for nine years now. The first 8, I was the parabolic microphone operator, getting audio from the field for the broadcasts. Now, I produce Sonny, Sam, and Frank from inside the broadcast booth on the 50-yard line. We also travel on the team charter, flying with the Redskins to every away game."
Gray is engaged to marry Cathie Bryan in April. Bryan, originally from Dallas, is an advertising executive.
"I play poker like it's going out of style and I proposed to her on a recent trip to Las Vegas in the Gardens of the Bellagio hotel," said Gray.
Gray invites any of his old school mates to contact him at camgray@....

Cameron:

I read the piece in the O-R with interest. You're having an interesting
career.

Ask some of your long-in-the-tooth colleagues if anyone remembers Ed
Painter, a WMAL engineer who worked many years on the Redskins broadcasts.
Ed began his broadcast career as an announcer at WJMA, a very able guy and
much liked.

By the way: when Ed left for another job he stored his drum set up in the
attic at WJMA for a year! That's how much he trusted us. Ed passed away some
years ago having spent much of his life at WMAL.

Gordonsville are now aligned with Unionville? Go figure. Anyway,
lead onward and
upward. Orange is a fine county. And you are so articulate.

WKCW Sold - 11/5 - Our sister VARTV site reports that New Jersey's
MultiCultural Radio Broadcasting (via Arthur Liu and Way
Broadcasting) has sold Warrenton's WKCW (1420 AM) to Metro Radio for
$400,000. Northern Virginia-based Metro Radio is headed by Bruce
Houston, who also owns business talker WPLC (1050 AM) in Silver
Spring. In early October, WKCW dropped classic country for Spanish.
In the DC area, MultiCultural still owns Spanish WZHF (1390 AM) and
WKDV (1460 AM), as well as Korean WLXE (1600 AM).....

Cameron,

I'm about to go out the door now. I'll get a copy of the paper and
see if you are there.

Would you rather have a scan? I don't know how well a photo will fax.

Send me your address and I'll send you the real thing.

Imagine, two WJMA Alumni on the front page of the same Orange
