Comments: Just wondering: How many old time radio lads and lasses read about the current salaries being paid to NPR's voices(!)?

Bob Edwards, of Morning Edition, is getting upwards of $225-thousand per, and Scott Simon, the guy who sounds like Gabby Hayes on the Weekend Edition, is dragging down over $170-thousand.

Remember, your contributions allow NPR to bring you these fine talents. (But try not to remember how much you were paid to do every damned job the station manager required.)

Comments: On the subject of Mr. Rogers, the first time I became aware of him occurred when I went into a living room of a friend many years ago. There were about five toddlers looking at rapt attention at the TV. I was amazed at how this gentle, soft-spoken man on the screen could hold the attention of these normally hyperactive children with short attention spans. His direct, friendly, and sincere approach was so effective that he held the kids' attention for the whole program.

I later saw Sesame Street, and read about the research that showed that children had such a short attention span that the subject and visuals had to be filled with action, and that the shot had to be changed every few seconds in order to maintain the audience.

I often wondered if the academics who made that study had ever observed kids watching Mr. Rogers.

Comments: Shaggy Dog's daughter here. I just found this site, and have been amazed reading about all those people I remember from so long ago. I'm writing an article about the Zing and Tuffy show, and would love to get more stories and photographs. If you have any of these, I'd love to hear from you. Please contact me directly.

Of course, we would like to hear and see any Zing and Tuffy stories and photos right here, too.

Comments: So sad to hear more on KVOO/KRMG - both were competitive radio giants in my day and class NEWS operations.

As commiserated here before - my home town of Charlotte sucks radio-wise save 4 area NPR stations - WNSC (jazz), WFDD (NPR/classical music/jazz/blues), WDAV (NPR but mainly classical music), and WFAE (NPR mainly with local productions M-F).

WBT-AM, the big useless talk radio giant, now has new AM and FM talk competitors - picking up the syndicated talkers that WBT doesn't have. Both of the newbies do at least 1 show live a day with a local voice - but all is a steam valve for folks. Must sound a lot like KFAQ/KRMG. You have to wonder if the stations pay more for the synidicated talkers than for local staffers doing a localized show? Also with Limbaugh - there used to be a revenue split to his outfit for spots sold in his block.

News in TV is a money maker now - why not in radio too???

Here in NC - other than NPR WFAE-FM does do a great daily 9-11am local issues (or authors) talk show M-F that IS worth listening to, but most never hear it at work.

WDAV-FM is NPR/Classical music only - what KWGS should be or maybe is more reminiscent of KWGS 30 years ago with all live, educated hosts. Go see their website - www.wdav.org - they are in a new custom built house-like building with live studios in Davidson, NC with a big pocketbook of support in our area. "If I won the lotto" - I'd donate part of my winnings for a new plant for KWGS like it and endow it for classical music. Oh, of course I'd donate the rest to a Coney party for all TTM readers!

Silly me - no Lotto in NC!

Comments: Must agree with Mr. Bates, KRMG has "jumped the shark". It is hard to imagine how this once great Tulsa institution has become what it is today - just another average radio station like all the others. Our morning Ski Commish aside, KRMG is nothing special any longer. This is all done, I suppose, in the name of progress or shareholder value (whatever that really means). It is also sad to hear what has happened to our old "Voice of Oklahoma" as well. But, two large corporations have paid their money and now are to get their way or so it seems. Too bad, where are the broadcasters who care about this community? Where is the next Mr. Ken Greenwood, or the future Carl Mark now that we need a steady caring hand at the wheel? Sad times indeed.

Comments: Burp - culinary note as I ate my Green's chili dog today down by Green's #1 by Charlotte's Federal Courthouse. Alas we have many Mexican restaurants here but no Casa Bonita's!

Re Green's - it's a Charlotte Observer and bailbondsmen joint just like a favorite downtown Tulsey joint. #1 owners DO speak Greek and Russian. Sorry they wear street clothes - no Coney-pro garb like paper hats.

No hot pepper shakers there - a la the Coney-Islanders in Tulsey. They do serve Texas Pete sauce at Green's & all over NC.

I read the label today after drenching my coney in it. It is made in Greensboro, NC - NOT Texas! What heretics! Gimme Tabasco Sauce any day!

But then again here - some folks put slaw in de luxe dogs' buns and do not add cheese with the chili and onions except by special request.

Bigger dogs though but as previously noted here - most East of Ashboro are died pink or non-natural red.

Gimme Tulsey food any day!

Comments: This is more of a radio memory, but nevertheless...

Sad to hear of Joe Riddle's departure from KRMG. Joe was very hospitable to a group of us high school students (not much younger than he was at the time) curious to see a radio show (David Stanford's "Nightline") in person. One of our group could do a dead-on impression of Stanford, and Joe got a send-up of David's typically flowery openings on a cart for David's amusement. Something about the sunset "reflecting and refracting on the Arkansas River". That would have been about 1978....

With the recent changes at KRMG, they are now down to four hours of locally-produced content a day, plus the news breaks and bits of their noon hour. 25 years ago, and maybe more recently than that, they were local around the clock, and locally owned. It has been a slow conversion -- first TalkNet (Sally Jesse Raphael and Bruce Williams), then Rush about 12 years ago. I enjoy some of the syndicated shows, but it's sad to look back and think what a great radio station it once was, and how well it embodied the Tulsa spirit.

Personally, I think KRMG "jumped the shark" with Jerry Vaughn's departure, although you could make a case for other shark-jumping points -- when the Great Raft Race was dropped, when the station became corporately owned, when they dropped Sportsline. (See jumptheshark.com if this phrase puzzles you.)

Comments: The video on your newscasts are first rate and this must be because your video photojournalists are sharp, on the ball and underpaid (as this makes them more hungry).

No matter how "CUTE" the anchor or reporter---it is the videographer that makes them look good. The anchor/reporter MUST treat the camera guy with reverance, cause he is just like the beautician--paints on film and the subject is the reporter.

Your station is TOPS and the news department SUPER (Ask Drei for meaning of THAT'S NICE.)

Which station?

Comments: As someone who grew up watching both HoHo and Mr. Rogers, I loved their low-key approach. With both, it felt like they were talking directly to you. It's that kind of direct viewer relationship which is badly needed by today's children. It seems as if every children's show is a cartoon, and not of much substance. "Blue's Clues" is the possible exception, as it is only partly a cartoon, but plays mainly to the tiny tots.

I also apologize for missing the get-together at Casa Bonita. I was out of town on the 1st. Sounds like it was fun! I hope you guys ate a sopapilla for those who could not attend.

We did, and we'll have another get-together at a later date.

Comments: Mike B., My wife had our camera in her purse but I got so engrossed with the dinner company, I forgot to take pictures! By the way, you were not forgotten. We toasted your long career in the business and we all wished you the best in the future in a tough business.

For those who care, I used to live in New Orleans. This was back when Al Hirt had his club and things had not gotten quite as rough in the Quarter. If you haven't been to the Big Easy during Mardi Gras, you need to try it sometime. I am sure I am right in saying that no one does it like they do.

Comments: Well it is FAT TUESDAY or if you are of Polish extraction - PACZKI DAY - which is Polish for Fat Tuesday I guess. Maybe brother Ruddle can say the word (from his anchor days in Chi) - I am told it can be pronounced pushky or poonsky. Help! On this date - bakeries all over Chicago crank out special fruit filled pastries or strudel-like things that they do not normally prepare, sorry I forget all of the flavors..

Of course yesterday in Illinois - most of the schools were out for Casimir Pulaski Day - look him up, folks, in your Revolutionary War history books...okay if you are German it is Faschingsball time...all roads lead to Lent - I guess paraphrases all.

Brother Hillis needs to review our Mardi Gras activities for this date. Down here in NC the only sign of it is that churches are posting times for Ash Wednesday services...

I don't know of anyone else I would have rather had show than Edwin and Tami. We had a lot of common "TV" connections that we did not realize.

We missed the rest of you. Maybe next time.

Comments: HoHo the Clown of OKC and Mister Rogers had very similar presentations, in my opinion. I am not a big fan of the low key approach and, in this very guestbook, I was less than complimentary toward the late HoHo because he was gentle and not outrageous. I mean Captain Kangaroo was a maniac in comparison! But Rogers and HoHo were as important and as well-loved as any other personality on TV.

The one thing I personally liked about Fred Rogers was his music. When he talked about music or when you heard him play, it was obvious the man had a real passion for the art.

Then the equally daunting task of trying to find a station in Tulsa where you might hear the appealing Norah Jones! Has John Mayer been on Tulsa radio?

Dave Jones at KAKC, 8/21/68Comments: I read with interest the article and comments on KGCT by John Hamill and others...what a strange time in Tulsa TV. I was probably the only combo Chief Engineer/weatherman in the country (and at the time I wasn't very good at either one!)

I had almost forgotten about the weather map falling and scaring me out of my wits...but the show went on.

I had been at KTUL "Eight's-the-Place" as an announcer and met up with most of the folks that eventually put the station on the air.

It was fun but certainly ahead of its time. Now there are local 24 hr news stations at most every major cable operation in the country.

I enjoy the site. Keep up the good work. Hey Bruchas, give me a call or send me an e-mail.

Comments: Re Don Norton:

Noel Confer is the resident country music authority, not I.

The one theme that runs through so much of the music of this type is the disillusionment Oklahomans find when they go to California, from "the two-room flat on a street in West L.A." to "...They don't need me in the movies, and nobody singin' my songs." The California mirage still beckons just as it did for the dust-bowlers:

"Hey, Okie, if you see Arkie, tell him Texas got a job for him out in California

Pickin' up prunes

Squeezin' oil out of olives." But, of course, J. Paul Getty was once a schoolkid in Bartlesville, and Waite Phillips had his Italian palazzo in Tulsa--and both went to California, too.

Comments: I reminded former KTUL projectionist Jack Hobson tonight that we showed the original version of "The Quiet American" on the KTUL Morning Movie 28 years ago. Graham Greene's movie was made into a B&W tome with Audie Murphy and I think John Mills in the now Michael Caine role. Maybe Jimmy Reid or Pete Abrams will also remember it on 8 - so long long ago.

I saw it again 4 years ago on GoodLife TV as now one of their public domain movies - I wonder if it is no longer a PD print with this new movie???

I wonder what my Vietnamese retired news photog friends (in OKC & DC) who survived the Viet Minh and Viet Cong think of it - shot in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City...it is eye candy of a movie though...

Comments: This unemployment thing is @#@!% but I am catching up on my reading. Read Daniel Schorr's "Staying Tuned" - not as good as Bob Schieffer's recent tome but a lot of "back story" stuff. For all the good he did on CNN - it merits about 10 pages. A lot of op-ed stuff in there at the end.

BTW - Schorr in his 80's has been in the media since age 12 in Brooklyn - so talk about a career - the man still can't seem to retire. May we all live/work so long!

Due to my youth, I do remember our late, great turnpike friend--Stuckey's! Of course, most of our stops at Stuckey's involved getting gas (either from the pumps or from the food), looking at the junk they sold, or using the restroom (usually for vomiting, in my case).

Comments: Hey what's with the new Mazeppa Volume IV apparently due soon? Great news. Has there been a new discovery of lost tapes? How found, where, who? When? Channel 6 or 8 days? Would appreciate any and all info if anyone has it.

On another subject -- Mr. Bagsby recently mentioned seeing Leon Russell in concert recently, and in fine form. Is he on tour? Is he with a band? Playing old hits, country? Would love to catch that.

I had the good fortune of seeing Mr. Elton John here in Atlanta at a very small venue last week, with his full band. It was a great show and it reminded me of the last time I saw Mr. John with a full band, at the Tulsa Civic Center; had to be 1972, around the "Don't Shoot Me I"m Only The Piano Player/Honky Chateau" era.

Comments: I know that this website has at some earlier time related stories about the movie "Tulsa," but did anyone mention the song that came along at the same time and which was promoted heavily as a sort of rowboat in the wake of the movie?

At Central High, sheets of lyrics were passed out during an assembly and we were taught to sing along as somebody, probably Frances Wellman Anderson, played the melody.

It was a really dorky number and couldn't even get traction in the town it supposedly glorified.

"Tulsa, swingin' down to Tulsa, Gittyup horse, there's the county line...."

The hell of it is, I can still remember it while I'm sure I've forgotten some decent tunes.

Comments: I always stopped at every Howard Johnsons, especially the three on the Turner Turnpike. I hated their food and beverages but I loved the off-beat gifts and souvenirs. I bought the stuff for myself and others - and sometimes the people to whom I gave the items seemed to actually like the junk! But usually not.

Another thing I liked about Howard Johnson is that it was a good place to meet people from all over the country. It is also interesting that a girl I went to school with here in Tulsa was a niece of Howard and used to go and visit him every summer.

Maybe I should call her. She might know what they did with all those neat trinkets and gadgets that used to grace the shelves of HoJo.

Comments: Uncle Zeb in the 70's, what a great afternoon treat. My kindergarten class was on his show once. Queen 95/Rock 95, man was I ticked when they went country. I called and gave them a real piece of my mind (of course I was only eight so I'm sure they felt really threatened).

I was lucky enough to meet S.E. Hinton while Tex was being filmed near my home. I watched Betty Boyd and the John Chick Show faithfully.

I bought my first car stereo from Doc Rock. Linda Soundtrak scared me.

I was about 3 miles from the Dec 5th tornado. I watched it come down and destroy 21st & Garnett. I have to admit that "Gusty" never prepared me for that.

Did anyone see Mike Ziegenhorn say "herniated dick" instead of disk? I never laughed so hard. I did my current event report on Beth Rengel and her infamous report. Needless to say my teacher was not amused.

The memories go on and on and so have I. Thanks for the memories.

Comments: I noticed that our site's photo briefcase of hotels and restaurants doesn't have the old Howard Johnson's that was on I-44 just east of Harvard. That came to mind because the other day the New York Times published an article about the possible demise of the last Howard Johnson's restaurant in NYC. A Times food reviewer went there to sample the atmosphere before it's too late. He found that nothing had changed.

The article also pointed out that there are now only 11 Howard Johnson's still in business in the U.S. To read this article and to find out more about the life and times of Howard Johnson's, there is (as you might expect) a nostalgia site at http://hojoland.com.

So does anyone here recall any Ho Jo history in Tulsa? Wasn't there also one near the Turner Turnpike gate? Come to think of it, didn't they have the concessions monopoly on the Turner and Will Rogers turnpikes back then? It's starting to come back to me...

See Lowell's note above for a postcard of the Tulsa HoJo...it's now in the Photo Briefcase.

Below is the title of the movie, "Tulsa", with Robert Preston, shot in the late 40s. I just noticed that the font is very similar to what I chose for the logo of this site over four years ago. Is there something about the word "Tulsa" that cries out for a Cheltenham font? I think so...the height and symmetry of the "T" is emphasized, for one thing.
