Radio Broadcasting History
Favorite Radio Stories (Js)
You don't know me but I have to thank you for Great Radio when I
first heard you in May '62 !! The day K-mack became KMAKe was a new
day for radio in Fresno. The radio war with KYNO has to be a classic.
I was only 13, I guess, living waaay out in the country, 30 miles from
Fresno. I did get in on the FIRST $1000 Treasure Hunt when the secret
site was narrowed down to the vacant lot that later became a shopping
center. What a scene; thousands of people with shovels!
You guys Kicked ass as far as I was concerned. You, yourself, were
there for too short a time ( probably too long from your point of
view) but then Robert W Morgan did a fair job of trying to fill your
morning shift. Years later ('68) Gary Dee raised some hell with that
same little 1000 watt xmitter on 1340Kc.
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Gary Dee and Tom Maule in the
past couple of years.
