Another great snag by Dave S., here is an aircheck for you to enjoy, recused from A. J. Lindsey's blog. Again, the players on A. J.'s blog have ceased to function, hence, our bringing the audio back to you here on this blog! Now, in A. J.'s original words:
"I got a great email from Bob Steel who was the only Michael O'Sullivan KAAY ever had. As was Pat Walsh's custom as an inside joke, the actual Michael O'Sullivan was an accountant with LIN Broadcasting Corp. Along with some additional names, Bob sent a newscast with an exclusive interview with V.P. Spiro Agnew as he visited Little Rock. This is another great example of a real functioning radio news department. As you hear this great newscast you will probably be blown away with the commercial for "Black Ceasar" showing at the Capitol Theater and a couple of drive ins. Someday maybe I will tell you the story of the movie theater account at KAAY. Here is the aircheck:"

Bob Steel...I'll have to do some research to see if we have ever been in contact...my mind is swirling at this moment. I find it harder all the time to snatch details of things that happened so many years ago. Like David B. Treadway told me several times before...the grey fog obscures things that happened so many years ago! I find this comes from being TOO busy at times, when the job and other responsibilities tend to come to the forefront of my memory and hobbies get pushed back....
Have I ever asked anyone here for information on newsman Jack Lee? If anyone has information on him, could you contact me at the e-mail address below, please?
Thanks again to Dave S. for his tremendous help in the archiving and linking of these audio treasures!
