Mike Murray left for San Jose around September of 1969 and I became the afternoon drive guy for a few months.
I came back from WIFE Radio in Indianapolis and became the P.D. in 1971, but left …the next year for summer swing at WGIV in Charlotte and then WKY in Oklahoma City. I came back from OKC on a mission to get a college education. Waiting for my first term at UTK, I did fill-in for a few weeks when E. Alvin Davis was PD around 1974 or 1975.
I remember when Betty Benns was born!
