WTIT Worldwide Headquarters aka/My House. Maybe the only time this balcony was used.

Killer Joe at Work 1970

The majority of the photos of the original DJs at WTIT were taken in black & white in 1970. Galloping Gary took most of the pictures, since it was his film and camera. Killer Joe was trying to do his job when Gary approached.

Teddy Q. 1970

Teddy Q. is another of the Kingswood DJs. He recorded on WTIT in the late 60's & early 70's. Ted returned for both our "10th Year Party" in 1976 and WTIT's 20th Anniversary Party in 1987.

Bull Durham in 1970

Bull Durham was one of the DJs I met at Kingswood School. Our WTIT Blog has the story of how I wound up at that school. Click here for the story.

"Not Abbey Road" Outtake 1970

It took a lot of attempts before we got this shot the way we wanted it. Gary knew we had screwed it up already and was pointing out the mistake. This shot is more commonly used because the serious shot, as you'll see is damaged.

Bud Weiser 1970

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.

Gary on Guitar 1970

Galloping Gary on his guitar, the double exposure has Bouncing Billy appearing to be behind Gary.

Bud Weiser Sitting on Joe's VW 1970

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.

Carter B. 1970

Carter's DJ staff picture from 1970. The book is "The Strawberry Statement".

Johnnie with "Chuck's Gonna Sing It"

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!

Hunt Winklee 1970

Hunt was part of the Kingswood DJs who taped at WTIT in the late 60's and early 70's. He was most famous for his cabin.
