We continue Russell Well's series of the Pat Walsh recordings of KAAY, May 18, 1971.
Phil North picks up at 10:00 to 11:00 AM and Mitch Michaels (Nick Markel) is still at the news desk.
I always remembered Phil North in the evening, but this was unusual to me that he was on in the morning. Jonnie King called me, also puzzled as to why Phil was on in the morning...someone must have been on vacation, or had to be away for some reason. Nonetheless, Phil's great voice is at work here, as I remembered it! This time, Sonny Martin (Matt White) is in the Cash Cruiser.
The first time I called and spoke with Phil (now Eric Chase of Eric Chase Creative Services, http://www.eccsvox.com/ ), it was as if time turned back for an instant! I told him his voice was one one I'd wanted to hear again for so many years....
Great music, bringing back great memories. Historic news. And those great advertisements by the KAAY folks. Enjoy, compliments of Russell Wells' collection !
