Vol.2 No.14 Apr.3 1968 Grace Potts, Editor
For the second year in a row, WKNR is the recipient of an award from the
Boys' Clubs of Metropolitan Detroit. In a ceremony held Monday night, April
1, Paul Cannon accepted the award for the station which is given for
outstanding community service. Only six awards are made each year. The
Detroit Edison Company and the supervisor of Redford Township were among the
If it has seemed unusually quiet around these parts since Friday, it's
because all of the "wheels" have been spinning around at the NAB Convention
in Chicago. The aforementioned "wheels" are Mr. Patterson, Jack Davidson,
Frank Maruca and Jerry Martin.
Employment anniversaries this month: Mr. Patterson, April 14, 1947: and Dave
Sarkesian, April 6, 1953.
In a thank-you letter received April 2 from one of the servicemen who is a
recipient of our taped programs, there was enclosed a card announcing that
"WI<NR is now an Honorary Crew Member of the USS Kishwaukee AOG-9 and
entitled to all the rights and privileges thereunto.1I The card was signed
by the Commanding Officer.
Mr. Patterson's Gal Friday, your editor, was his guest last Tuesday night,
March 26, at the banquet in Cobo Hall honoring Detroit's Top Ten Working
Women and saluting "Women Who Work".

after this appearance (by Sinclair, that is - not B&B Productions.)
The J. L. Hudson Company's "Action Age - Seventeen Day" event, at which
three of our DJ's made an appearance, was an overwhelming Success and
Hudson's was very pleased with the turnout.
The KeeNeR Gang hereby acknowledges receipt of, and sends .its thanks, to
Howard Stitzel for the box of oranges he sent from Florida - which we
promptly chomped up.
Tuesday morning, April 2, we were advised that
Mr. Patterson was the winner of a Funny Bunny Lamp, one of 50 which were to
be given away by the Mister Donut Shop before Easter. Since Mr. Patterson
has never been in the Mister Donut Shop, the obvious question is, "OK, who's
the wise guy that signed his name?"
