Re: John Cregg recollections / photos / audio ?

Ross Hunter <rossgroups@...>
 

John,

I worked with your father from the time I joined WJMA in August 1971 until he left the station in 1973. He was working mornings and I was working nights, so we didn’t see each other very often at work. I don’t recall where he went when he left. There was a time some years later when a business letter arrived at WJMA. On the envelope was “Hi Arch…John”. Arch Harrison was the owner of the station. Apparently your father was working for the Postal Service in Denver and the letter past through his hands. Kind of amazing.

There were a number of occasions between 71 and 73 when I would have dinner with John and Linda at their house just off VA 20 near Barboursville. I’m not sure I could find the spot today. There was another couple who often came to those dinners. I recall they lived in Rapidan and he worked in Washington, maybe at the Pentagon. It may have been George & Elise Payton. I’m going back to very fuzzy memories this.

 I remember John telling me his mother was secretary for Edgar Shannon who was president of the University of Virginia. I don’t recall her first name.

I don’t think there is any audio of your father, but there are some pictures on the WJMA website:

Sorry I can’t provide more. There are others on this list who worked with your father and might be able to give you more information.

Hello WJMA alumni,


I am an adoptee and have recently discovered through an Ancestry DNA test that I am an the offspring of John Cregg of WJMA 64-73 sports fame. In the process, I have discovered a half-brother who is also John's son and a fellow adoptee. We were both born during his time at WJMA. From communication with John's sister, it appears neither of our stories was known to her. My new brother and I are seeking any information anyone could share that might fill out a pretty blank canvas about John - we have little other than some yearbook photos, birth, marriage (3) dates, death, and his time of employment at WJMA and military service.

moving list to Groups.io

Ross Hunter <rossgroups@...>
 

With some luck, in the next few days I’ll be moving the WJMA list from Yahoo Groups to Groups.io. Many of the Yahoo Groups I belong to have made the switch. There is some concern that Verizon, who now owns Yahoo, will kill off groups.

Why? I’ll let Mark Fletcher explain.
================================
I started the service ONElist in 1998. ONElist made it easy for people to create, manage, run and find email groups. As it grew over the next two and a half years, we expanded, changed our name to eGroups, and, in the summer of 2000, were acquired by Yahoo. The service was renamed Yahoo Groups, and I left the company to pursue other startups.

Yahoo Groups and Google Groups both exude the dank air of benign neglect. Google Groups hasn’t been updated in years, and some of Yahoo’s recent changes have actually made Yahoo Groups worse!
================================

There’s nothing you need to do. A new group will be created, you will be subscribed, you will get a welcome message, and messages should come to you as people post. However, if you have a @yahoo.com email address you may have problems. Yahoo has been marking messages from groups.io as span and that results in your removal from the Groups.io list. The people at groups.io are trying to find a solution. It appears Yahoo doesn’t want to loose groups and is making it difficult. You may get a message from Groups.io telling you how to resubscribe. It has to be done within 3 days.

Let me know if you have problems and I can probably give you a link to manually resubscribe.

Matthew C. Peregoy Hey all...I am trying to remember the Orange radio station call number/ letters from the 80s...I remember there was a guy that went by KP as the dj and each time before he'd go on, an announcer would say "hey kids, what time is it"....wasn't that from the old howdy doody show?...


Matthew C. Peregoy No, not the phone number...I mean, like C'ville is 97.5, etc...

Matthew C. Peregoy for some reason 96.7 sticks in my head...was that it?

Jody Shelton yes 96.7 WJMA

Eddie Estes Yep 96.7.

Ross Hunter It was 96.7 from 1971 until 2001 when it switched to 98.9. Then in late 2002 in moved to the old WCUL location of 103.1. That's where it is today.

Lots of WJMA history at this site. http://www.wjma.radiohistory.net

Jody Shelton 96.7 WJMA


Matthew C. Peregoy See, I should have known that...lol...Who was the DJ that went by "KP"?....

Tonya Breeden Estes was it J.D. Slade??

Tonya Breeden Estes Ken “KP” Pratt

Matthew C. Peregoy JD was on there too at the time....But I don't think I ever knew Ken...outside of being called "KP" that is...lol....

Matthew C. Peregoy I don't know what suddenly made me think of this...someone else did a post on here about radio call letters from the past I think...

Pat Thomas I dont remember KP...I remember JD...


Jill Solek-Giles You might remember it as WVJZ or WJMA

Jill Solek-Giles Z96.7 was the familiar name. I remember calling in to win a "z-pack" back then (and it wasn't just an antibiotic for respiratory infections)!


Terry Dillon Late 60s ,early 70s it was WJMA.

Tony Sprouse good ole WJMA and JD Slade. Who remembers the "swap shop" that came on every week day morning?

Bobby Coiner WJMA - 1340 on your am dial

James Booker Jr How about when they use to cover Hornets sports

Kemp Carpenter Clint ESTES

Kemp Carpenter Phil Goodwin & Autobear ( spelling)

Charlotte Whitbeck I remember the Swap Shop, letters to Santa and wasnt it Pat Watson who did a lot behind the scenes? 
I will always remember the parade where a "band" marched with radios turned to the station. I thought it was such a clever thing!

Joan Mench Clark 672-1000 Swap Shop. Loved it.

Margaret Tanner Correct am dial

Stacy Plasse 672-1212 weather

Nancy Sherman Burton JM is for James Madison

Jim Tucker Monday’s at one.

Phil Goodwin is the 2018 recipient of the George A. Bowles Jr. Award for Distinguished Performance in Broadcast News, awarded annually by the Virginia Association of Broadcasters (VAB). The Bowles award is the state’s highest news industry award. It will be presented at the VAB meeting in Virginia Beach on the weekend of June 12-23 at Virginia Beach.

 

Phil joined WJMA in 1976 as evening announcer. Over the years he did just about everything at the station: announcing on all shifts, production, sports, sales, and assisting with engineering. In the mid 1980s, Phil left for jobs at other stations (WINA, WCVA/WCUL, and WTKR), but returned in the 1990s as News Director.

 

Over the years Phil has won awards from the Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters and the Virginia Association of Broadcasters. In 1994 he was honored by the Radio Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) with an Edward R. Murrow award for his feature news story “Water Discovered” about renovating a public water fountain on Main Street in Orange. Andy Rooney from CBS presented Phil the award. Phil says he was flattered when Rooney told him “I heard the story. The writing was good.”

I remember working the Swap Shop with you all back in the late ‘70’s and the day the lady wanted to sell her “parasol” only to find out...it “you know... cuts woo-ud.”

Working at WJMA was great fun!
When shall we have another reunion? “Pat Watson” is almost 25’ tall now and the squirrels love her.

Congratulations, Phil! Nice going!

All I ever won was the coveted Pat Watson Award for the Whust Newscast EVAH!

You have come quite a way from one time, back in the late seventies, when you were filling in for Ross on Swap Shop one morning, and a nice lady called in to try to sell a "unifoam." You had a lovely chat with her, and eventually realized that what she was offering for sale was a UNIFORM. I don't know how many times you mentioned that unifoam during that conversation on the air, but I had a good giggle over that!

Also, I did not know that Andy Rooney had presented you with another award, and mentioned to you that he had heard AND liked your story!!! That really impressed me because I don't think that Andy Rooney ever liked ANYTHING!!!

I recall that most of his bits on 60 Minutes seemed to begin with the phrase, "Don't you just hate it when..."

Keep up the good work, Phil!
