As an old radio newsman myself - working in the UK in the 70s - Art is a legend for me. What a time and WHAT a station to be working in radio news. It remains the fastest medium for true and fast news.

I was listening to the Frank Terry show today on Boss Radio KHJ which aired on September 7 1966 when I heard Art do a spot
for my family's business on 20/20 news. It was for Kern's preserves and jellies. I was 11 years old and had forgotten about those commercials on KHJ. What a great time it was growing up and listening to Art and the rest of the boss jocks. Nothing like it anywhere. I sure miss those times.
