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.
