1979: MR. AND MRS. GARY KATONA CONVERSE WITH A KING
"old friends." Once such is Gary Katona, a gentleman I met way back in the mid '70's when we were both "young men." As seen in the graphic above which I extracted from one of the Mercer Messengers in my collection, along with a photo of King Hussein of Jordan, whom Gary and Carol had the honor of conversing with through that wonderful media we all know as amateur radio. In my lengthy radio career, I can only claim conversing with two celebrities. Larry Ferrari, and my favorite satirist, Jean Shepherd.
