This gallery will be a collection of miscellaneous pictures of people. Most photos will be in galleries associated with the stations they worked for or in individual posts but for some, I don't have enough material to have a separate station gallery or they occur as a part of a collection, as with the first listing here. Station galleries are listed on the respective station profile page under Stations on the sidebar; if there isn't a station profile yet for a station, there is no gallery for that station.
I am always happy to receive photos of Houston radio personnel to publish on the blog, along with some personal information, from any time period. It is not necessary of course to give up any precious family keepsakes - just scan the image and email it to me (email address on my Profile on the sidebar). JPEG and PDF files are acceptable (JPEG format is preferred). Put each image in a separate file please. Photos which include studio equipment are desirable but not necessary.
A group of photos at the University of Texas, part of the Bob Bailey Collection, concerning some sort of public expo arranged by Aylin Advertising and presenting personalities from several Houston radio stations. Some personalities and stations are identified on placards but others are not and I would appreciate hearing from anybody who can supply any names. Since one of the stations identified is KLBS the photos date from the period 1952-1957 and I would guess earlier in that time period. The first photo, obviously, has historical significance but is not related to radio history. Note: Checking this link out I see numerous photos that were not in this group originally now appear, only a few of them related to radio. hrhwebmaster 1/9/2015.

Dan Shelton, Mornings, and Dan Parsons, News, KODA-FM, ca. 1980. We had formed some sort of athletic team, hence the jerseys. Behind them is the Shafer Automation unit for KODA-AM and to the right, the unit for KODA-FM.
Debra Forman, Evening announcer on KODA-FM, ca. 1980.
His name was Dave and he did evenings on KYND-FM in the waning days of that station before it flipped too KKBQ-FM but I have not been able to remember his last name. Shown is the KYND-FM control room in Greenway Plaza with the station reception area visible through the window.
The following 6 photos come from the May/June 2003 issue of the now defunct Inside Houston magazine. The cover story was entitled 'Radio Active - Putting faces with the voices of Houston's top radio personalities.' The article was written by Laurette M. Veres, identified on the masthead as Publisher/Editor-in-Chief. The photoghraphs were taken by Pam Francis.
