TV Digest Page From 1946 Re: KTHS

Thanks to H. W. Duncan for this golden nugget!

"Here is a page from TV Digest 1946 indicating that during it's attempted move to West Memphis, KTHS also filed for an FM License."  Credit for this file goes to American radio History:

Thanks, Hollis!

More CALS Celebration Pictures, From Doug Virden

As per Doug,

"...here are some pics from Friday night.  First is Big John Miller who works at the Butler Center kicking things off.  He has all the reels Barry Mac has restored.  Second is the panel of speakers from left to right Clyde Clifford, David B. Treadway, Sonny Martin, Barry McCorkindale, and Bob Steel.  Bob Robbins wasn't able to make the event and he was truly missed.  Third, is moderator/emcee Tom Wood, his background is he came to Arkansas from Peoria, Illinois in the late 70's to start up a new radio station called MAGIC 105 which went on the air the following summer.  I'm sure Tom listened to KAAY in Peoria.  Barry also worked at MAGIC 105 on the weekends in the 90's in addition to KAAY.

Thank you, Doug!

KAAY CALS Celebration Pictures

Sorry I've been dragging my feet on these, folks, there has been that four-letter word impeding my fun: work....

Here is the McDonald family:

From left to right: Pat McDonald Hardwick, Lynn McDonald, Nancy McDonald Rinehart, Cindy McDonald Terrazas, Larry McDonald.

Thanks to the McDonald family for posting this picture on Facebook!

I'd posted this cartoon awhile back that I forget where from, maybe Larry's Facebook, too:

No doubt doing that family afternoon thing on a Sunday after lunch: window shopping!  How many years has it been since we've done this?  Too many, as stores have gone to an inner mega-big box format.  I miss the old small town stores...

More to come!
