WBSR Valentine’s Promotion … UPDATE – 21 July 12

with one comment

I ran across these negatives years ago and posted one of them up on the old blog site.  WBSR must have had some type of promotion asking the listening audience how much they love WBSR and to mail in Valentine’s cards to let them know.  I am not sure exactly who the disc jockey is, but I think that this might be the late Don Priest … he was at WCOA for many years.  The next photo is just another variation of the above photo and the only one that I posted on the opd site.

This last photo was a “start” photo or maybe a “before” photo.

If anyone remembers this promotion that WBSR ran back in the 1950’s for Valentin’s Day, please share your memories of this with us.  One more thing, WBSR used to print up a top playlist from back in the 60’s and I must have collected them.  I ran across a stack of them when I was cleaning out a closet at my parent’s house and I was thinking of scanning a few and posting them for the sake of nostalgia … Stay tuned and thanks for looking.

UPDATE:   21 JULY 12

I am been recently informed that this is not, I REPEAT – IS NOT, Don Priest, but the famous Gordon Towne.  My sincere apologies to Mr. Towne or Mr. Priest … I guess it depends on how you look at it!  The negative envelope only said ” Valentine Promotion – Radio Station “, and I just guessed the rest.  I stand corrected …

  1. wasn’t around for that but Yes scan a few top 40 lists. we used to look forward to going to the WBSR booth downtown (was it Gayfers or Sears upstairs?) on Saturdays to get the list, or to Murphy’s to figure which 45’s we were going to buy.
