One more from Charlie Okle, from May 11, 1963...and it features a handsome young man by the air name of "Larry London", who has, I think, been mentioned here before. QUICK! Don't cheat and scroll down, but who was "Larry London"? Yes, he came to KAAY later in this year. Take a good look at the picture before you scroll down, then see if you are correct!
"Larry London" is our very own Jerry Sims! A short time later, when he came to KAAY, he became the second "Sonny Martin". A word from Jerry himself:
"This was my first radio job and was very exciting for me. I grew up listening to the station, and knew that is what I was going to do. A.J. hired me there as well as later at KAAY. It has not been overly important to me to know the exact dates I was at either place, but now I may try to get it from some source.
Thanks for all you do for us,
Jerry/Larry/Tom/Jerry/Sonny.......(I was all these on the radio)"
And it is a pleasure that I, and we, do this for you and others to enjoy!
Jerry also sent along some more pictures of himself at KXLR and the control room, for your enjoyment:
