Been working and trying to keep warm over the last week..
I occasionally get emails and comments from readers..Just about all kind words for the blog, which I appreciate..Sometimes emails will include Interesting Broadcast related pictures and audio. Ed Thomas, an amateur radio operator from North Canton, was good enough to e-mail me some pictures from his archive..I thought it would be cool to share these pictures today..
An early City Camera Ad..I would guess from 1967-70..Pictured Left to Right:Doug Adair, Dick Goddard and Marty Ross
Probably from the 1970's..WAKR-TV's Dick Russ making a "graceful" exit from the News Set..Wondering who the Lady is stting next to him?..Carol Costello perhaps? Dick Russ has been at WJW-8, then WKYC-3 for many years..
Edit:Ed Thomas tells me the young lady seated with Dick Russ is Debbie Cutter.
Also from Channel 23-1970's..Mark Williamson preparing to go on..Obviously during the Christmas Season..Williamson now works for the City of Akron
Also from 23..Weatherman Jack Ryan..Was a warm day in NE Ohio, judging from the temps..
This appears to be a bumper sticker for the old WOIO-AM Radio 1060 in Canton..From the early 1970's..Probably not long after they dumped talk for music..As A teenasger, I listened to WOIO-AM during it's "Two-Way Radio" talk days. (1969-72) I still remember the call in phone numbers! After many years as WQIO and "adult radio" WRCW it is now Catholic WILB..They should have kept the WOIO calls..One of the best around..Of course, WOIO is now TV Channel 19 in Cleveland..
Thanks again to Ed Thomas for sharing these photos..If anyone else has anything they think might be of interest, please let me know..
