Vol.3 No.18 May 7, 1969 Grace Potts, Editor
The last two weeks have really been the birthday season around KeeNeR. some
we knew about and others we didn't know about until they had gone by. Our
night switchboard operator was upset with your editor in not announcing his
birthday on April 28. well, Marty, we can't announce it if you don't tell us
about it. Anyway, hope it was a good one. Also, Gary Granger had a birthday
on April 27 and we learn, in 'speaking to him harshly' about not passing on
this information, that he had mentioned this event on the air and received
four cakes from fans. None of us saw any of them and didn't even get a taste
so we'll just have to take his word for it.
Also, in the birthday department, the gang pulled their usual fast one on
Alice Williams on Tuesday.
Now that Barbara Collins has left, we have only one Barbara 'to contend
with,' but with the arrival of Mary Allan and Don O'Connor, we now have
three Mary's and five Don's!
Dick Buller's son Rick is following in
his dad's footsteps. Rick has been performing for about a month now as a DJ
one night a week and Saturday afternoon on the campus radio of Michigan Tech
Your editor received a very nice letter from former KeeNeRite Gary Kolasa a
couple days ago. If you'd like to read it, it's on the bulletin board.
Last Sunday Gary Granger and Tom Neal attended a youth group session at
B'nai David in Southfield. Many parents also attended this particular
session inasmuch as the appearance of entertainment personalities was a
departure from their usual guest speakers. Gary and Tom did such a good job
with the questions and answers that they have been invited to return at some
future date. They were advised that a plaque would be presented in
appreciation of their appearance.
Ed Busch sat in recently for Jerry Taylor on FM and made a brief
announcement about the Miles Modern Poetry Committee of Wayne State
University sponsoring poetry week, suggesting that manuscripts be sent to
the University. Ed was advised by telephone Tuesday that manuscripts came in
from allover the state and that this was their biggest contest to date.
Paul Cannon's son Michael, a newsboy, recently won a 'three-day trip to New
York City for having achieved the greatest number of new subscribers in a
