Ok, now was Will Gregg also known as Yon O'Conner or something like

Mark,
Thanks for the reminder! Since 1977 I have missed 3 seasons for various
reasons. During one of those seasons Eric St. James worked with Will Gregg. I
never worked with Will. I thought it was Davis Kube, but I now believe David
Kube only worked basketball games.

Re: 50th year of OCHS football

Clint Estes
 

Ross,
Please let me know the best day and time for you and Bill.
When I came in 1977 it was Bill and Ted and in 1978 I worked
with Bill and next was Tom Graves. I never worked with David Taylor (though I
have heard his great voice and style) so he must have been between 1973 and
1977. Is that possible?
Some other names that have worked football:
Phil Goodwin
Ken Pratt (KP)
Rev. George Frazier
David Kube
Mike Cartalaro
Mike Howes

There are many others that worked basketball including Mary
Thompson.

Hi everyone...I still haven't heard from Phil Audibert whether Ryegrass Rollers can play on Saturday or Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. I will be coming in from upstate NY, and have to start thinking of how we shall organize this gettogether. Anyone interested in helping?

Willow (Barbara Potter) PS...How comforting to drive into Orange from upstate NY on Saturday and hear Phil Goodwin's voice on WJMA. Knew I was home.

50th year of OCHS football

Dominion Market Research staff <xhunter@...>
 

Clint,

Strange you should bring this up. Just the other day Bill and I were trying to recall all the football play-by-play and color people .

I'd be happy to meet with you.

One idea they comes to mind would be to tie the cutaway music to the era of the speaker. Maybe Phil Goodwin could put together some :30 news headlines from various of the past 50 years. I think I may have a bit of Ted Carroll play-by-play on tape. Maybe we can locate some more tape.

I've tried without success to find both Ted Carroll and Tom Graves. Bill, Red Hager and David are both on this list. Don Little is reachable

Ross,
It appears the 50th year of Orange football will happen this fall
following an earlier conversation with John Shick and Joe B. We will start on the FM
(98.9) and move to the AM should the lawyers get everything worked out before
the end of the season. In 1953 WJMA broadcast its first game on 1340 and it would be ironic that the
last few games may be back on 1340 where it began! My question to you is I would like to do some interviews with former
players, coaches and broadcasters from the past 50 years as part of the pregame
and or halftime and was wondering if you and Bill would be available at lunch or
after work one day next week to discuss this. Red Shipley is willing to help
with this project and could join us to brainstorm. I had also toyed with the
idea of having former broadcasters like Bill Little, Ted Carroll, David
Taylor, Tom Graves etc., announce a quarter of play-by-play or at least do an
interview and maybe a "Wishing WJMA a happy 50th football season" promo. I have
not asked John Shick about the guest broadcaster idea but I will check with him.

I am open to any and all creative ideas from the "group" about promoting
this 50th Orange football season (and possibly the last) on WJMA so please
chime in!!!!!!!

P.S. Many thanks to Arch way back in the fall of 1977 that gave me a chance
to do local sports and to Bill Little for the training to call a game!

Unexpected neighbors

Seth Williamson <seth@...>
 

This week I have been emceeing some music panels at the monster bluegrass and old-time music festival we're holding in Roanoke

(which you can read about here, by the way):

www.roanokefiddlefest.org

Yesterday I did something called "One-on-One with Charlie Waller" at Hollins University, with the legendary guy who founded the Country Gentlemen in 1957. Charlie lives in Gordonsville, and I mentioned that I used to work at WJMA. He told me that his neighbor is none other than...Bill Little.

One of those small-world moments which I thought I'd pass on...

Re: Ernie Crane

JWhitten@...
 

Longish hair?

It reminds me of the devout Conservative in graduate school who wore his hair long because, for men, hair-cutting as a bit too cosmetic, and therefore, against the natural law.

He did, however, manage to be always clean shaven.

It's obvious that I'm a little behind in my WJMA reading, but I'll catch up.

Very sad news. Ernie was one of pillars of Main Street and it has not been that long ago that you could still see him prowling the parking lot there on the corner.

I remember about 20 years ago I managed to run out of gas along about where Preddy's is. I jogged to Ernie's Exxon (then) and breathlessly asked if he could loan me a can to carry some gas.

He gave me and my longish hair a searching look and then slowly walked over and picked up a can and handed it to me. I could tell he was wondering how far I could be trusted so I offered to pay him for the can. He looked me in the eye and said, "I don't want to SELL the can I just want it BACK".

Ten minutes later I returned with the can to Ernie's mild surprise. He seemed extremely pleased to have met an honest young man and glad that he could give me a hand.

We tend to take people for granted till they arn't there anymore.

Re: Fredericksburg Arbitron ratings

Gary Harrison
 

Here's what it really says. The Fredericksburg Arbitron Market #166
includes the following counties: Orange, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Caroline,
King George plus the City of Fredericksburg. Coverage and not programming
are the reason for a 1 share. The station can't be heard by 70% of the
market population. So...........with that limitation a 1 share ain't bad.

Gary Harrison

This is a good corollary to what I've been saying.

Clearly, the current programming isn't working. So now's the time to
try something new. You don't necessarily have to blow off the format
and start from the ground up, either. Some of the things we've been
talking about can be introduced gradually, transforming the station
over a longer period of time, keeping the old listners while
bringing new ones on board.

the founding father

Dominion Market Research staff <xhunter@...>
 

Today I spoke with Welford Sherman, the founder of WJMA AM back in 1948. He's interested in the list, but unfortunately does not now have email. However, he said he'd be happy to get together and talk about the start of WJMA and the early years.

Which brings me to...
Are there any questions or subject areas you would like to have covered? Is there anyone else on the list who would like to be part of the interview?

Fredericksburg Arbitron ratings

Dominion Market Research <Ross@...>
 

Here's an item from the VARTV.COM site. Note the last sentence.

Ross
.................................................................

.:: FLS' lead in Fredericksburg shrinks significantly

WBQB... but they're still in front by almost 6 points. Arbitron
released the final Spring Book for Fredericksburg earlier today which
wrapped up on June 18th. In front was Free Lance-Star's country
"93WFLS" with a 14.8, second Mid-Atlantic Network's Hot AC "B101.5"
WBQB, Infinity's talker WJFK and Rhythmic WPGC tied for third and
fifth was Bonneville's news WTOP. Other market notables... Free Lance
Star's alternative "99-3WYSK" drops down to reality (5.5-3.9) but is
sixth overall, Telemedia's Oldies WGRQ gets a nice rise to finish
seventh overall with Free Lance-Stars' "Classic Rock 96.9" WWUZ.
Telemedia's "Thunder 104.5" WGRX showed promise last year but can't
get above a 2 in the Winter or Spring Books. Not too good news at Mid
Atlantic Networks' WFVA-AM - they plummet from a 3.7 to 1.6. And good
'ol WJMA garners a 1.0 for a seven-way tie at 22nd place. The
complete 12+ ratings can be found at radioandrecords.com.....
