A Note from Jerry about Words and Music of Love - Back in the heyday of AM radio the Midnight hour was filled just before and on some stations late into the night with a strong baritone announcer and lots of good easy listening full orchestra music- I had a couple of role models in this field, here in Oklahoma, Tulsa had a show called "Music 'til Midnight" it was on KRMG from 10:35 to Midnight and featured at one time Jim Hartz who later would co-host the "Today" TV show. but no one really was better than a fellow by the name of  Franklyn MacCormack. He was on WGM AM when that signal covered almost all of North America at that hour and it was a marathon for many of the years it was on the air running from 11:05 p .m. until 5:30 a.m.  His show started in 1959 the first year I was college and ran until June 12, 1971 when it came to an abrupt ending with his dying on the air of a heart attack.

As a tribute to MacCormack this Valentine's Day we are going to present a rare recording of his show which was called The Meister Brau Showcase. We have included one of those commercials for the beer company as they were always a masterpiece in their own right just as his torch hour segments in the wee small hours tugged at the heart strings of all of us, who had loved and lost. We hope you enjoy the show and when we do our next version of "Words and Music of Love" which we will, we hope you remember and understand why we do these shows the way we do. It's a tribute to a long lost art in radio broadcasting and done with love and respect for those who pioneered this format over the years.   MP3 Running time: 56 minutes, 17 seconds

2008 Valentine's Day Special - Words and Music of Love

In the tradition of radio's rich history of late night mood music programs, Jerry presents a visit to "The Street of Dreams."  In this program music of the pop years is combined with prose and verse written by Jerry lamenting that there is a place where happiness and love abound, a place that lies in the memories of each of our lives, a trip down "The Street of Dreams."  

"As a boy I used to listen to late night radio soft music shows on such stations as WGN in Chicago where Franklyn MacCormack would fill the night with warm words and romantic music, in my native Oklahoma, on KRMG in Tulsa, Jim Hartz who would later become a newsman and anchor for NBC laid out his own share of schmaltz and nice music. I present this tribute to those great shows humbly as we walk the street of dreams, where every romance is wonderful and fulfilling and every wish is fulfilled instantly. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did putting it together."
