KAAY November 20, 1969, with Ron Owens Part 1!


Here's Ron Owens!  This was Walt Sadler, who was a newsman at KAAY, as well.  You can tell he has fun while on the air.  Jerry Sims, the 2nd "Sonny Martin" mentioned Walt a lot in his posts and said that Walt probably had the best natural voice in the business.  There's a KTHV advertisement near the beginning and all through the recording, it is unscoped...which many of us love!  It gives us a wonderful sense of "being there" once again....

Bill Edwards was the newsman on this audio offering, about 10:00 into the recording.  Also, several interesting classic commercials are interspersed throughout.

About 15:00 into the recording, it sounds like Gary Gears announcing Ron Owens...can anyone substantiate this?

Apparently, this is right off studio tape; you can hear a little warble here and there.  Russell Wells had obtained some of these recordings from Pat Walsh years ago.

If you've heard parts of this recording before, it was probably on A.J. Lindsey's blog; I think this may be the link:

Regardless, here is the full version sent to us to enjoy by Russell:

Stay tuned for Part 2 of Ron Owens on this date of recording, compliments of Russell Wells and Dave S.!
