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
