the first studio Pictures at LEFT and RIGHT depict the birth of a radio geek! These photos were taken around 1971. Most radio people began their careers in a home-made bedroom studio. This was mine. My parents became very suspicious when I tossed out my bed and began using a sleeping bag on the floor to accomodate the studio equipment. holding 45 rpms

This is a picture of a dear friend and relative John Rogers (on mike and me "engineering") as we both "learned" radio. John settled "down south" after working at a variety of stations, including WAYV in Atlantic City and WIP, Philadelphia. Sadly, John died in 1996 of a brain hemorrhage at 42. At top right of picture, on wall, note promotional bio and face sketch of WFIL's Dave Parks and Brother Lee Love, circa 1971.
