This is a portrait of Frank Terry from the “Boss Jocks” promotional package.
These scrapbooks are great! I've always wanted to know what the weekend shifts were for the boss jocks back during the Spring of 1967. Do you have one of Bobby Tripp? My guess was he was on from 7pm-Midnight on Sunday in addition to Noon-3pm weekdays. I started listening to KHJ in the Spring of 1967 when I was 9 years old. I was hooked from then on.Thanks for all the memorabilia,Dave
Dave, you were correct in your hunch about Bobby Tripp. I'll post his portrait in the future but below is the weekend information from all of the portraits:SaturdayGary Mack: Midnight - 6AMRobert W. Morgan: 6AM - 10AMSam Riddle: 10AM - 2PMThe Real Don Steele: 2PM - 7PMHumble Harve: 7PM - MidnightSundayGary Mack: Midnight - 6AMFrank Terry: 9AM - NoonJohnny Williams: Noon - 7PMBobby Tripp: 7PM - Midnight
Thanks a bunch, Ray! Johnny Williams had to work a 7 hour shift on Sunday. That's the longest weekend shift I've ever seen a boss jock pull (even longer than his usual Midnight-6am shifts)!The first weekend shift I remember was during the Summer of 1967. The Saturday lineup was the same as in your post (except Johnny Williams was Midnight-6am), but on Sunday:Frank Terry 9am - 3pmBobby Tripp 3pm - 8pmTom Maule 8pm - 2am (I think)Some of the later weekend shifts were mentioned in Ron Jacobs' great publication "KHJ - Inside Boss Radio".Dave
