My Father, Rodney P. Smith, was Licensed Operator, Program Director, announcer, and musical performer (piano) for KELD starting in the 1930s and 1940s. I often accompanied him to turn on the transmitter for broadcasting on many record breaking (no pun intended) adventures- from my pulling and tearing sheets of copy from the AP and UPI machines for his newscasting to sometimes sing on Uncle Rodney's Kiddie Program. Maybe I should start jotting notes and continue reporting.
