the missing

I think you're right, Reid. I believe (now) that it was Cregg. It's no
wonder we can't find him. No one knows how to spell his name.

Thanks.

Hi Barbara:

Thanks for the info. However, John's (and Linda's) last name was "Greg",
not
"Craig."

By the way, it's cold and wintry here in the "Sunny South," as well.
Maybe
we should arrange for a WJMA reunion later this month......... in
Hawaii.

Ross:

There is another name that should be added to this list, John Greg, with
whom I worked at WJMA from 1969 until early 1971. He was at WJMA (morning
man) years before I came and, apparently, stayed for a few years after I
left. Does anyone have any information about John?

Bob,

You are right John should be on the list of the missing. Arch says his last name is spelled Cregg. I looked for him, but did not locate him. I also looked for Linda, but could not find her. I saw Linda a few years ago when she had a catering business. I contacted a few people who had contact with her in the last few years, but she seems to have dropped out of sight. A Google search for John Cregg turned up a few, but they all said they were not _that_ John Cregg.

John was doing mornings when I arrived at WJMA in the fall of 1971. John always seemed to be a wild one. Maybe Bill Little can add some details here.

I do recall an incident from maybe the mid 1970s. John had been gone for some time and was apparently working for the Postal Service in Denver. A letter came to Arch from someone in California and there was a "Hi Arch, John" written on the envelope. Apparently he was sorting mail and noticed the address. Small world some times.

Also from the small world department. When my company Dominion Market Research began in things were pretty slow. I was looking for projects to learn the PageMaker desktop publishing program. On Christmas eve of 1987 I heard John Lee, on the Virginia News Network, interviewing Tom Osina a spokesman for the Virginia Independent Gasoline Retailers Association. I wondered at the time if either one knew the other had also worked at WJMA. So was born the idea of an newsletter for WJMA Alumni to be called "Blast From The Past". It never got much past a couple of rough drafts before our business picked up and I no longer had time for the project. To show how long ago that was, we reviewed two movies: Broadcast News and Good Morning Vietnam.

Ross Hunter

I guess this list is a revival of "Blast From The Past".

He was the cause of my downfall on one of my first days at work. After I
finished my shift on a Friday afternoon, he invited me to go with him to a
local service station/beer bar and toss down a few cold ones. Even though I
was underage (at 20), I went and ended up downing 12 mugs of Budweiser
draft. We then drove to his cabin, named "Froggy Bottom," where his
girlfriend cooked us some dinner, and I downed another couple of beers from
cans. Later, some friends of John's stopped by to visit. The last thing I
remember was throwing up in a bucket that had been placed in the middle of
the living room floor (I was on the floor at this time.), while the others
commented on my method and style of delivery. I had to sign-on the station
for the first time the next morning. That is another story that I will save
for a later time.

Subject: [WJMA] the missing


Here's a list of names that I found on a couple of printouts. A few
of these folks are around, but I have not been able to find them.
Among those that should be found are:

Rich Carpenter, Ted Carroll, Mike Coffee, Duke DuFrane, Rob Eure,
Patricia Hammill, Mary Johnson, John LeGarde, Dudley Littlehales,
Molly Moore, Marissa Murphy, Ann Pritchett, Jean Purcell, Randy
Shavis, Ron Smallwood, Page Talley, Leslie Willis. Some of these
folks may still be in the Orange area.

Mike Coffe is a financial consultant and lives near Crozet, Duke
DuFrane is in Culpeper (Lennie can you help here?), John LeGarde may
be in North Carolina, Molly Moore (now Sandridge) may be in
Charlottesville, and Ron Smallwood is an attorney and may be in
Richmond. Rich Carpenter is a UVa grad. If you are also and can log
onto UVa's Alumni website, you may be able to get an email address.
If you know any of these folks or any on the long list below, get an
email address and send it to me: xhunter@... or
staff@...

If we should add any to the deceased list, please reply to the list.

Thanks,

Ross Hunter
