Les, how many miles do you think you put on it?  We had a Datsun station wagon from Waugh’s that served the folks well before being turned over to Ann for her days down in Williamsburg, if memory serves.  Great little car!

Re: transmitter readings

Les Myers
 

 I remember being on the air when an FCC inspector came by one day. Arch showed him the operation, then brought him into the control room where I was spinnin' them songs. Mr. FCC looked over the transmitter logs, the current readings, the day's program log and whatever else he was tasked to do. I was scheduled to take a reading at 2 pm, but he and Arch were in there chatting away. Then Mr. FCC asked me, "Aren't you going to take a reading? Isn't it time...?"

And I, demonstrating my erudite showbiz wisdom, replied, "Well, you're here looking at the readings. I didn't know I would have to take them right now..." or words to that effect. Needless to say, I got off the stool and took the readings.

Les, who remained employed there in spite of the inspection.

Yes, just about all of them I remember well. 

I was rather conscientious about keeping the logs on the dot of every two hours until I realized that nobody really cared as long as nothing went haywire with the transmitter. 

The problem with transmitters (at least the one we had at WLSA) was they needed to warm up, so you had to turn them on in stages and it was a several minute procedure. Luckily I could rely on the fact that Bob Trent would not generally be up at 5:00 am.

The only morning I signed on at WJMA was Sunday and it was at the more civilized time of 7:38 if I recall correctly.

Report from Paris

Ross Hunter <rossgroups@...>
 

Reid Harrison has been checking in on Facebook from Paris…last night to report he was OK.

Today he posted on Facebook:

I have no idea why there were reports (NYT, NPR) that Paris was "in a state of lockdown" today, but that simply was not the case. Parks, public buildings, and movie theaters were closed, but people were out, walking, shopping, eating at restaurants. The flow of life was fairly normal, albeit under a gray cloud of shock and outrage. One might interpret this as being cavalier, but this is a country that in its history has experienced a lot of shocking episodes. It is to their credit that this happens now and they stand up and tell those who strike at them to go to hell, they're going to live their lives. That's how it looks to me.

It was pretty scary Saturday night when the lake that used to be our back yard inched toward our house but no water came in. Our street was spared but many around are dealing with a total mess.

My grandmother used to have the radio on every Saturday evening. 
Part of the programming was a show entitled  that featured a 1920s-30s tune (that must have been popular with the "Flappers") as a theme song. 
It is still in my head, after all of this time. 
Does anyone have an idea what the title was? 

I need to exorcise this thing. ; )
……………………………………………………….

I don’t know the answer, but wonder if it was Collin Rosse’s “big band” show. Collin worked at WINA and had a show syndicated to at least two stations: WINA and WJMA.

Any of the Saturday night regulars on this list have an answer?

My grandmother used to have the radio on every Saturday evening. 
Part of the programming was a show entitled  that featured a 1920s-30s tune (that must have been popular with the "Flappers") as a theme song. 
It is still in my head, after all of this time. 
Does anyone have an idea what the title was? 

I need to exorcise this thing. ; )
……………………………………………………….

I don’t know the answer, but wonder if it was Collin Rosse’s “big band” show. Collin worked at WINA and had a show syndicated to at least two stations: WINA and WJMA.

Any of the Saturday night regulars on this list have an answer?

Nice job Reid! 

Here’s the response from the Facebook poster;

Yep. That's the song.
The show theme was an instrumental... but the lyrics put it into perspective!

Come to think of it... I went to school (elementary, circa 1966) with a Collin Rosse.

This is probably not the version on M and M, but it is the song!  Unless I’m completely wrong.
