John Doremus 1967


What an incredible voice. Mr Doremus began this style of late night radio on WMAQ Chicago and syndicated on the BIG stations. He also 'invented' in flight music.





AFN Bremerhaven 1968 - Paul Hennessey


Left to right are SP5 Dave Stewart (later became a SGM), SP5 Paul Wetterhahn (aka Paul Drake), myself SP5 and SP5 Dick Dalrymple (not sure of spelling). 

A little while ago we posted AFN Bremerhaven in 1968. Paul Hennessey was there and sent some great memories of AFN Bremerhaven in 1968.   "I never worked as a dj after my AFN experience. I felt very fortunate to have been able to do it back then. I’m 72 years young and living in the MO Ozarks for the past 13 years. Also, am trying to get some screenplays I’ve written made into movies. Haven’t been able to make the right connections yet even though I worked at SAG Union Headquarters for 20 years from 1984-2004."  It must be morning, it's time for the Bremerhaven Bugle Call!

Mary Helen Barro 1983


Our weekend fiesta begins!





Charlie Tuna 1983


Is that what they mean by disk jockey?

Charlie Tuna comin back at you for another 60 minutes in the radio.

It was always great stuff.  Easy to see why Charlie entertained the troops for a quarter century.
Today, it's 1983 and great once again.




Joe Allison 1965





Joe Allison is back with more of your favorites from the Country Corner. Joe Allison was country music.  A performer, writer, producer and he brought back home to the radio.

Chuck Cecil 1979


Chuck Cecil was playing the big band oldies around Los Angeles by the 1950s.  He got it on KFI, syndicated it and ran it for decades.  We were pretty lucky to have it so long on AFRTS.
