Vol.3 No.34 Sept.10, 1969 Grace Potts, Editor
KeeNeR's great public service effort of the year is now under way with the
promotion and announcements concerning ALSAC. 1000 posters are being
distributed now to schools to help enlist volunteers for the September 28th
"March for Leukemia," and Gary Granger starts his "walk" down Woodward
Avenue this afternoon, each step representing a volunteer, until he lands in
the Detroit River! When the annual ALSAC teen march is over, WKNR will
sponsor a show, as we have done each year in Cobo Hall, for all the
volunteers as a "thank-you" for their efforts. In response to an invitation
from Mr. Patterson, it is understood that Danny Thomas will also appear at
this show to make a personal "thank you."
A big KeeNeR welcome to Dan Carlisle, our new FM disc jockey in the 12:00 to
6:00 PM slot. Dan comes to us from WABX and has had broad experience in the
underground music field. As a side note, he told your editor he is also an
author, having had a couple selections of poetry published.
Martin Bell, who formerly held down the 12:00 to 6:00 PM FM slot, suffered a
heart attack on August 24 and was advised by the doctor to eliminate some of
his work activities. Inasmuch as he is an Episcopal priest, he decided to
devote his work effort to that profession. We'll miss him and wish him well.
Ed Busch didn't inform us until 'after the fact' that he had a birthday on
August 28 so we couldn't make the announcement. After taking considerable
scolding from him, we hereby report this historic event and also advise that
he received two unsolicited birthday cakes in "a spontaneous show of
affection by his fans!"
Mrs. Knorr has a zillion tickets to sell to aid Northwood Institute and
would be pleased to have you rush right in to buy one. They're only $1.00
and you get a chance on a full length natural ranch mink coat, individually
styled for the winner. OK, all you Joe Namath fans. this means the fellas
can buy a ticket, too!
When we 'interviewed' Tom Neal upon his arrival at KeeNeR, he advised he was
a skin diver. He elaborated on that skill by telling us recently that he is
a professional skin diver and worked during the summer of 1967 in the safety
and rescue coverage for the painters maintaining the Mackinac Bridge. He has
also searched underwater wrecks in search of items of interest. He and Dan
Seslar should get together and compare notes.
Dick Buller's son Rick returns to Michigan Tech this Friday for his second
year of higher education, and Jerry Martin's son Terry returns to Wayne
State on the 25th, majoring in Chemistry.
Helen Reakes proudly announced that her daughter-Debbie maintained an "A"
average during her Foreign League Studies which took her to Europe for
several weeks this summer. Part of this high average covered study to learn
the German language.
