I posed this question to Mike Bruchas, who replied:

nice gifts. I bought a lot of Xmas gifts for my Mom there. Maybe in the late
70s, it seemed more of a stationery shop meets Spencer Gifts."
I was there once, in the early 80s, to buy a greeting card with a "Talkie
Tape". A Talkie Tape is a long thin red plastic strip with a surface similar
to the groove on a record. You play it by sliding your thumbnail down the
rough side. The strip is attached to a card or balloon or something light
that can easily vibrate to amplify the sound and give it a voice.

I was always amazed how he could edit as fast as anyone with both hands rewinding

occasionally lighting another cigarette.
Johnny was the only one I know who could edit full speed and spoke a cigarette
with no hands and never let the ash fall on the film. At the last second,
with three inches of ash hanging off the cigarette stub, Johnny would artfully
lift the cigarette from his lips and drop the ash in the ashtray nonchalantly.
Other memories just as funny. Red Statum had one of the funniest ones about
what happened to the wrinkles in Johnny's face when something happened.

I worked closely with Johnny. When I anchored sports, he was always my

Johnny was one of the earlier employees of the station. When I came in March
of 1965, he was in the news department working mostly with Hal O'Halloran,
our sports guy. Earlier I think he had run the film library. His wife Mildred,
had made the Tuffy the Tiger and Shaggy Dog costumes for the Mr. Zing and
He was a worker bee, and rarely if ever got credit for his contribution to

Johnny loved to drink beer. Often when we had been out covering a story,
he'd stop on the way back to the station and get a six pack. He'd have at
least one beer on the way back up the hill. I think he edited film better
after a beer. Somewhere, here during the holidays, I'm gonna get me a tall
cool one, and sit down and have a beer with my friend Johnny Rauser.
Hope to see some of you Saturday morning.

He always had a cig in his mouth. Decent photog for crime and traffic wreck

Johnny got him that job at 8.
When Hal O'Halloran left 8, Johnny joined him as a photog and later Wayne

December 15 2008 at 12:36:27 Name:
Lee Woodward Topic: Bootleggers Comments: Doctor Ruddle kicks the
old memory banks again with his mention of the so-called King of Bootleggers,
It was my indistinct pleasure to meet Ron Padgett's father at the Go-Kart
track at No. Sheridan and Apache back in the summer of 1958. His son Ron,
who would have been 15 or 16 years old at that time, was also racing Go-Karts
at this track.
There were the usual heat races and I guess the elder Padgett took them very
seriously, as I had stayed on the track after my own heat to try and adjust
a faulty carburetor; staying down low and out of the way. Since Son lost
the heat race, Dad wanted someone to blame. I was standing by my Kart (owned
by the track owner) when this guy walks up and coldcocks me right on my left
cheekbone. It stunned me for seconds and before I could retaliate, some of
the other men had pulled him back and also restrained me. Of course the cheap
shot artist was wearing a big clunky ring on his right hand and I still have
the scar to prove it.
I didn't go on the air for a few days, which was no problem back then and
with make-up, took care of the problem till it went away. After that incident,
at a drivers meeting, Dad grudgingly apologized. That is when I found out
who he was: a nondescript bootlegger. I never heard of him being any sort
of King of that trade, but maybe he was? I don't know the requisites.
I think his name might have been Wayne or Dewayne? Kudos to his son for taking
a different path and from what I have read of him, seems to have some bonafides.
I will leave that judgment to those qualified.
And yes, I...like thousands of other Tulsans used the services of bootleggers
and of course, let them use my phone to retrieve their next order.
The next summer, I raced 1/4 Midgets and then retired, just as the Karts
were moving towards speeds where I could have really gotten killed.

December 14 2008 at 17:38:52 Name: Scott Linder Topic: That bar by the Delman...
Comments: I remember that bar north of the Delman Theatre. I often
worked as a projectionist at the Delman in the late 60s. I actually never
went to the bar, but I admit that I sometimes ran to Van's Hamburgers across
the street while a full 22-minute reel was running!! I can't believe that
I actually left the booth, but the first show didn't often have many patrons,
so I guess I thought it was safe and the manager didn't seem to mind.
Van's was one of my favoite burger joints. That slim, wrinkled cook seemed
to always be there and I loved the sound of his spatula as he expertly shaped
a fresh-ground burger patty before flipping it to the well-seasoned flat-top
grill. The fries were freshly cut and the cole slaw was basic but delicious.
Somehow, I always made it back to the booth before the reel ran-out. I suppose
that it never occurred to me to visit the bar during evening shows, but a
drink might have been nice on those days that I was doing a double shift
from noon to midnight. I wonder if barmaids would have delivered a drink
to the booth?
Now, I've been away from Tulsa for many years, but I can attest to the fact
that there were a hell of a lot more bootleggers that could have been ranked
as "royalty" in that grimy business. The Edwards clan, the Easleys, and others
had their share of the action, and I wasn't even involved in the game enough
to know all of them. I do know that the name "Padgett" didn't send shivers
down the spines of the average "Leg."
Google has pages devoted to this Padgett guy and demonstrates the problem
of current amateur historiography which depends heavily on these self-promoting
characters. Somebody who knows nothing about the prohibition years in
Oklahoma--from statehood onward--will then quote Ron Padgett as the source
for all information on the subject.
Somebody please enlighten me as to the Ron Padgett "King of the Bootleggers"
