Do You Recognize This Pair?

OK, we're going to reach back aways and bring these guys to you...before you read any further, do you recognize this pair?  One, you've been listening to on some of the advertisements Barry Mac has been sending in; the other fella maintained much of the electronics and hardware to bring you the previous fella's voice.

Here they are standing in front of the 7th street KAAY studios, with a gold record award.  KAAY was always getting awards from different record companies, when the station helped break a new record or contributed heavily to it's success, as in a million-seller.  These same record companies had plenty of records to give away and were in and out of radio stations all the time.

It is not known who's hand that is in the lower right hand corner, holding another award, nor what that award may have been for.

What with KAAY's great coverage, monseterous signal and talent (both behind and in front of the mic), you can rest assured that the station did its part in getting exposure to many, many artists and records, some local talent as well.  One can only wonder how many awards actually graced the walls of KAAY....

This picture is compliments of A.J.'s blog and is well worth posting here.

By the way, the guys above are Matt White (the third Sonny Martin) and Dave Montgomery, the original contributor of the photo.  Dave is always checking in, giving advice and information to post, but so far we have not been able to lure Matt White here!

Thanks go to Dave for the original loan of the photo!
