Eric, thank you for sending in your Christmas wishes!  I also celebrate the King of Kings, Jesus Christ, for this is his celebrated birthday!  I hope Elvis is celebrating life with him in Heaven!

Jonnie King's Christmas Extravaganza!!!

Bud, I wanted to send you the Link to my yearly CHRISTMAS MOVIES LIST...before it was too late !
Here's the Link, I've added many to the "extras" section....and, as of  last year, I added your "Better Off Dead" film if you remember. (I watched it is really cool !":

ALSO, am attaching a pic of yours truly from the Spring of 1969, shortly after I got to  KAAY.  (Man !  That guy looks young !!!)...

...AND, a pic of me in the KAAY FUNMOBILE on Dec. 6th, 1970, at the 'TOYS FOR TOTS" yearly event:

 Bud, thank you for the George Barris Tribute did a GREAT job !  (Jonnie, THANK YOU, you did all the work!  BS)

More later, my friends, God Bless you & yours with a warm, wonderful Christmas, and, a healthy, happy 2016 !

Retro: Christmas & KAAY

I remember when I was a teenager, going to school during the day, working nights & weekends and listening to KAAY blasting into Mobile, AL.  I'd sent an e-mail to A. J. Lindsey about those days and he'd posted it:

"This comment from Bud:

Hello again, Doc! This time of year (Christmas) reminds me of KAAY even more....I always will remember the Toys For Tots going on in Little Rock. One of my plans was to take as much vacation as possible, drive up and stay in Little Rock during Christmas. Alas, due to my family (I was the oldest, holding things together, in a broken family) and my work ethic, I hardly ever took time off, so this dream never took place....

Nonetheless, just listening to KAAY during the Christmas season bolstered my spirits and fueled my imagination! Thanks for the memories!"

...followed by comments by Dave Montgomery about the blue "Funmobile"... here's the link:

One of my goals was to help with the Toys For Tots toy drive.  I thought it was cool how the Marines and bikers would team up and keep this thing going, all the while KAAY deejays did marathon stretches at the mic aboard the "Funmobile" remote.

Good memories...sorry I never acted upon it.  Merry Christmas, all!

Slightly Retro: December 1974 Aircheck

Let's get into December with an aircheck of Bill Jackson, a "Ken Knight", from December 1974!  It was first mentioned on A. J.'s blog back on December 21, 2006, but the link is broken, so the second link is from when we obtained it from Greg Barman and posted it:

"The second aircheck...."

and ours, complete with the link:

Thanks again to Greg Barman, who donated this aircheck in both instances!
