While most blogs formed in the last 10 years of so post less frequently or have shut down, I once again have set a personal record for most posts in a year. This is for the 5th year in a row.
A great year and the emergence of Maple Valley are probably the reason. This is post 386 for 2018. Happy New Year!

KTEL's Brother John Hammond worked the night shift on the radio and was a student at Wa-Hi during the day. Because he was still in High School, he had valuable insight on what worked on local radio.
Hammond is probably remembered most as the DJ who was on the air in March of 1974, urging listeners to streak outside the KTEL studio.
This cut was done many years after Hammond left the airways. He was doing a fun tape with fellow Walla Walla legend Dave "Rockin'" Cochran.

Barokas and other air personalies were at Fred Meyer in Issaquah to promote the Salvation Army Toy Drive.
