Gene Loving “One of the things that I remember was weekly music meetings, and I was privileged enough to be involved with those meetings with Johnny Eagle. One of Mr. Benns’ sons went to Georgia Tech, so you could tell there was a big influence from the Atlanta market. So we were always in tune with the latest and greatest hits.”
Jack Pennington – “Worked with Gene in two small stations in McMinn and Monroe Counties during the mid 60′s before he ascended to Jet Fli. He was absolutely great. Wonderful sense of humor. Very, very happy memories of Gene.”
