George J. Jennings Link

Bud Stacey found this link as he searched for KAAY stuff.

I'm not sure if they got that photo from me or not. I have a 8 X 10 black and white print. It is one of my favorites because it includes the RCA 77 D mike and the original newsroom of KAAY in the Channel 11 building. George was probably 25 at the time. He was collecting old time radio shows, starting a family, and grumping a lot. While the industry was full of drugs and booze, George had a briefcase full of Diet Dr. Pepper and Neo snyferin. I still have some of the old time radio shows and plan a project to use them. George and Nancy, along with some neighbors had a business that put old time radio shows on 8 track tapes that were sold through Cracker Barrel. They also manufactured the golf tee game you see on the tables at Cracker Barrel.

I've always liked the old time radio shows! I still listen to some old X Minus 1, Dimension X, Lights Out and Box 13. I always tried to stay awake to listen to Beaker Theater.

Of course, I'm also a big fan of the old black and white sci-fi movies.
