Bud in the Soby Drive Studio. The reel-to-reel tape deck was actually Johnnie Walker's because WTIT's was on the fritz. The mono tape deck, behind Bud, was WTIT's first recorder. By 1970, we used it for jingles. Today, everything is on one computer. We haven't recorded on an actual tape, since 2000.
On the day we took the WTIT DJ first staff photo shoot. As previously noted, most of the shoot was photographed by Johnnie's college buddy, Chuck. We worked a lot of hours. Toward dusk on a day in the summer of 1970. Bud Weiser was taking a "smoking" break toward the end of the day's photo sessions.

During the summer of 1970, Johnnie Walker brought home a friend from the college he attended in Florida. His name was Chuck. We called him "Chuck's Gonna Sing It" because of the 3 Dog Night album "Live at the Forum". At the begining of the song "One", a member states "Here's a song and Chuck's Gonna Sing It". Chuck sat in on all the WTIT recordings that summer, but did not utter a word. Chuck's contribution (& it was major) was to be as a photographer. All the black & white photos of the orginal five members, that summer, were shot by Chuck's Gonna Sing It. Thanks Chuck!

Bud Weiser with his girlfriend Sally. Sally appeared in the WTIT film "The Soldier". In 1969, WTIT DJs girlfriends did a WTIT Tape Radio show without us present. Along with Sally, were Jill (who was dating Gary), Sue (Joe's girlfriend) and Carol (Johnnie's girlfriend).
