Dedicated in memory of Jim Collins


There were two 'MacNamaras', the first being Ted Radomski who did morning news beginning in 1963, succeeding David B. Simmons. He worked on the air with both Jerry G then Harv Moore.

The next newsguy to use the name was Jim Gray. He was succeeded by Marv Brooks around 1966. Jim passed away on an unknown date.



Harv Moore writes:

In 1963, we had a newsman we called MacNamara ("MacNamara here!")....helluva voice..He lived right down the street from the radio station...real name, Ted Radomski....he used to tell me about his brother who was struggling in an off Broadway show...several years later he was a superstar...the "off Broadway show was "Hair"...Ted's brother was one of the writers - Bill Rado (Radomski).



Miscellaneous Audio:


JFK Assassination Update Bulletin - :17

Special thanks to contributor, Lee Whitney for the above audio and Bob McArthur who recorded it who writes:

I remember that I'd been listening to WPGC that morning, and so my first awareness of the assassination was from their bulletin. The announcer said "President Kennedy has been cut down" and at first I took it to mean someone had insulted him, though as the bulletin continued it was clear he'd been shot. I quickly began recording from the radio.
