Haven't heard from too many about when you want to party....We will need to
plan...How about that Saturday of Labor Day weekend, and we make it a potluck. That way nobody is really out much...and there's enough food for who comes,
because "who comes" brings it...Any thoughts on that?

Willow,

As far as I know, I'll be around Labor Day weekend. Carol may be in Chicago.
Whatever the "committee" decides is fine with me.

Might you have an Internet computer close to the party site so those not able to make it could join in on-line?

two new audio files

Ross Hunter <xhunter@...>
 

I finally got an chance to digitize some tape Phil Audibert loaned me. I have uploaded two files to the NEWS folder in the FILES section of the Yahoo site. Use the link below to get there.

The first file is called "Audibert balloon". It's a good pices that would be at home on NPR today. I recall that it won "Best Feature" in the non-metro category in the annual Associated Press, or was it Virginia Association of Broadcasters, competition? I really should have posted the entire piece, but the file would be too large to make for practical downloading on dial-up connections. The posted file is almost 2 minutes long. The missing part is between the two songs.

The second file ("Monday At One WWII") is the opening of a "Monday At One" program featuring local World War II vets. I think I recognize the voices talking about their war time experiences: Joe Samuels, Bill Thomas, Billy Trimmer, and Tommy Brown. Trimmer has one of the great lines from Monday At One history: "Now if you've got any straighten up with the Lawd, that's the time to start doin' it."

At the end of the piece is the "Monday At One" theme. I don't recall the song title, but I think the group is the Modern Jazz Quartet. Anyone else remember for sure?

Anyone recall when "Monday At One" ended it's run? How many Douglas Southall Freeman awards did it win? Five?

Ross had it right--Dave Blount is alive and well in Charlottesville,
working as an education and local government lobbyist and consultant.

Dave: please correct any errors.

Ross

Thanks for the kind words about my promotion here at WJFK.
Honestly, my days at WJMA/WVJZ are really the only reason I am here
now. It afforded me such a great experience and I knew from there
on that radio was my career future. Special thanks to Ralph Graves,
who was the first person ever to teach me anything at a radio
station.

Anyone know where Dave Blount, former newsguy is now?

Thanks,

Hi arch; & gang
Your memory is great Arch, just a few MINOR adjustments,
John's father worked for May Rudasill (sp). Unfortunately he
contracted cancer and had to retire. They moved to C'vlle.
because John's mom was secretary to the President of the U.

The last I heard from John which was a LONG LONG time ago (he
wrote to find out if we were divorced yet! - Only for 2 years)
He was in Wheat Ridge, Co. But California wouldn't surprise me.
Keep us informed - I never did find out why he ran away from home,
but I have my theories. No, I don't think I'll share.
Linda,

Bill Little recalls that John's father was at the Ben Franklin store
in Orange which closed shortly after Bill came to work at WJMA.

IOK...I will take on being Party Meister...but need a committee...only
because that's a party in itself. Who is going to be around this summer?
Linda said she would cater (still on, Linda?)or do you want to potluck and
Phil and group will play (thanks Phil) and we need a party game meister (as
in volleyball net...for the pool or the ground...already have a croquet
set...pool and hottub...) and we need tables and chairs...I probably can get
them from my church, Gordonsville United Methodist...but could use some help
schlepping...and make it BYOB? We can provide drinks...and of course
balloons marking the driveway at Cedar Hill Road just north of the
Gordonsville Circle. What days can you'all come? We have plenty of roomfor
tents in the backyard, and even one RV hookup down by the barn. We will be
back in VA on June 28th so plenty of time to plan. Let's hear what you all
want and we shall plan accordingly. The Pat Watson Oak is standing pretty
tall these days.

Ross, what was that throat stuff you always kept on your desk in our
little office? Do I recall you had it in a spray bottle, an "atomizer?"

Russ Roberts
Russ,

I think it was Cloraseptic. Sounds like something to fix your drain field.

Cloraseptic was green and nasty, but it had a mild numbing effect that helped a sore throat.

It was a real chore to drag out of bed some winter mornings when I was not feeling well. I recall Mark's story about being sick as a dog while riding the board for an Orioles double header that had a rain delay _and_ extra innings.

Re: Thanks

R Roberts <russroberts@...>
 

For "Frog in the Throat" Dr. Pepper was my remedy. One winter, though,
a minor cold clogged the pipes to the point where the good Dr. from the
pop machine was impotent. I turned to over-the-counter sinus pills.
They worked so well I stayed on them for six months! My, how the cavity
resonated with a Sahara head!

When nosebleeds became a problem and on weekends, without the pills,
when my head closed up tighter than a bank vault, I decided my system
must have become dependant upon the little pink pills. With that power
of diagnosis I should have hung out my "Physician" shingle! Who needs
medical school?

Knowing the Drug Fair generic pills were doing me no long-term good and
fearing they might lead to "harder things" (dynamite?), I went cold
turkey.

I feel so much better now that I've confessed my former addiction to the
group here. My name is Russ and I am a reformed sinus pill user.

Jean Love was my first teacher in terms of actually sitting in for an

operate all the equipment, shut down etc. For some unfathomable

The first time I was on the air it was to read a newscast at either

I guess so. Mark Johnson was indeed my teacher (and a good one, too). And I
am very flattered that Cameron remembers me.

But let's not get too crazy here. Tracing the lineage from teacher to student
connects virtually everyone in the station - and who wants to claim credit
for teaching the teacher who taught the person who set the news copy on fire?
