came across this site and wanted to give you some details about
Don Nork. He was my grandfather, and he passed away from a heart
attack on May 17, 1988. After leaving the station, he moved to
Florida. He was divorced from Mary
(way before my time, so I don't have many details on her), and
met my grandmother, Beatrice in Hollywood, FL. He went to work
for General Electric at Cape Canaveral, and later transferred
with GE to Greenville, SC where he worked until retiring in 1985.
was raised by grandparents, so he was more of a father to me,
and I couldn't have asked for a better example to live by. He
used to tell me stories of his radio days, and the people that
he had the opportunity to meet. It was all very fascinating to
me. I'm glad I found this site, and had the opportunity to learn
more about the station.
