Mal at work

Mal’s notes on his bio

Here are handwritten notes Mal made when preparing to talk about his work. (If you have heard his talk you understand he never typed a word.) Interesting things he mentions that you may not hear in the talk —

  • His first job in on the air was a commercial on Ma Perkins
  • He tried to get WBBM to hire Ann Margaret (in about 1961, before she hit big)
  • After he started WIVS there was a time with a lot of the family in the business
  • The growth of FM stereo
