MIKE KELLAM [ex KHFI FM/KHFI-970, NBC WMAQ-670 engineer] (Estes Park, CO) Subject: KHFI’s TV station in 1966. Hi, Jim! Good to hear from you. Hope I can come by again sometime, but it may be awhile. KHFI AM-FM-TV (KHFI stood for Kennedy Heard Features, Inc. – Rod Kennedy, a local promoter in Austin who previously owned the FM station). I believe that Rod Kennedy continued to own some small interest in the Southwest Republic Corporation. In 1966 the TV station went on the air as Channel 42. It was a project of the Southwest Republic Corporation, a group rumored to be Republicans. Southwest Republic acquired an AM station at 970 AM, whose call letters I cannot recall, and changed them to KHFI-AM. The venture brought Ridge Radney, TV program director, from KPRC-TV, Channel 2, in Houston, along with Al Beck as chief engineer, who hired me shortly after TV went on the air. Dan Love was the General Manager, and I believe that he had some broadcasting history in Austin prior to the Southwest Republic project.

JACK PARNELL [former Program Director WHBQ-560] (Memphis, TN) Anita (Wood) was a beautiful girl. I think I only met her once, and she was also extremely nice. I grew up in Milan, TN, which is near her hometown of Jackson, TN. I was senior in high school when I began at WKBJ in Milan. Interestingly, she turned Elvis (Presley) down when he asked her for their first date. She already had a date for that night, and told him straight out that she was NOT going to break it. She went on to marry a pro football player, and I can’t remember his name…I think he died quite a few years ago. JP

JANET LYNN [fine Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame singer] (Austin, TX) Working with Johnny (Gimble) was also very different. He came from the days where female singers were a “feature” and not a front person. So he’d call me up for 2-4 solo songs and expect me to be “on” right out of the chute whether I had any warm up or not. Of course, he called upon me to sing the specials and was asked to sing his compositions on the ACL TV show. The point is he surrounded himself with good people, took young people under his wing, and allowed them to shine. I was one of the lucky ones to go to the School of Gimble. Dayna Wills, Bob Will’s niece, is a close friend, and she said today that she knows “Johnny and Uncle Bob are already sharing fiddle licks and stories.” And let’s not forget that Playboy magazine once said Johnny was “the best d*** mandolin player in the world.” And he was amazing on mando. I hope this tells you a bit more about Johnny and the good man, family man, he was. Johnny swings with wings! Blessings to all as I know he would want to be remembered so fondly. Janet Lynn Member of Texas Music Hall of Fame, 1999 Member of Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame, 2000.
TRIVIA ANSWER: On July 13, 1923 real estate firm Woodruff and Shoults erects landmark HOLLYWOOD sign to promote new housing development in Los Angeles, CA. The HOLLYWOOD sign overlooks the community spells out its name in 50-foot (15-meter) high white letters originally says HOLLYWOODLAND. The real estate firm does not intend for the huge sign to be permanent. But, it quickly becomes an internationally recognized landmark. In 1949, they remove the last four letters LAND to make it simply HOLLYWOOD.
CHUCK DUNAWAY [ex WABC-770, WKY-930, KILT-610, KLIF-1190] (Houston-Katy, TX) I rode the train home to Scarsdale (NY) with Jack Lescoulie (NBC TV’s Today show) when I worked at WABC and he departed at White Plains (NY). He always made a deal of being on the train so he’d be noticed. He had some really big teeth. Memories. Chuck (www.chuckdunawaydj.com/)
ERLE STANLEY GARDNER (July 17, 1889 – March 11, 1970) It’s a d*** good story. If you have any comments, write them on the back of a check.

I will fill you with Joy and Peace as you wait in My Presence. Spending time with Me demonstrates that you really do trust Me. People who trust mainly in themselves and their own abilities often crowd Me out of their lives. As you learn to trust Me more, you increasingly delight in time spent with Me. And the more you wait in My Presence, the deeper your faith grows-increasing your Joy and Peace.
Because you belong to Me, My Spirit lives in you. You may sometimes be unaware of His Presence, but He is always aware of you. Moreover, He is continually at work within you-transforming you into My likeness with ever-increasing Glory. You cooperate in this process by focusing on Me. As you become more and more like Me, hope grows within you. With the Spirit’s help, this hope can well up inside you till it overflows-spilling out and splashing into the lives of other people!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. -Romans 15:13
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. -Isaiah 26:3 nkjv
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. -Romans 8:9
We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. -2 Corinthians 3:18
