Among the 2010 inductees
into the National Radio Hall of Fame
are at least two with a Christmas connection.
A program entitled “Music & The Spoken Word
” began broadcasting on July 15, 1929. To date, this weekly show is carried on over 2,0000 radio and TV stations and cable networks. The show which features music from none other than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
will enter the Radio HoF as the longest continuous running radio show in America!
The late Sam Phillips of Sun Records, the man who first recorded Elvis Presley, will also be headed into the Radio Hall of Fame.
What would Christmas be without The Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Elvis!
Feel free to find a Christmas connection to other inductees and post them here! They are Ralph Emery, Terri Hemmert (a disc jocky), Carl Kasell (of NPR fame), and Cathy Hughes (an Urban radio pioneer).
I suppose some will remember some Christmas moments from Ralph Emery’s various radio and TV shows from over the years. (Be sure to share any audio or video clip links found online here!)
