Russ 'Weird Beard' Knight - RIP

Mike McGuff broke the news the other day.  Here's a link to an obit in a Connecticut newspaper.

J.R. Gonzales chimed in with a post including a picture on his Bayou City History blog in the Chronicle.

Chronicle Radio Ads

J.R. Gonzales' Bayou City History blog in the Chronicle has another radio related post this week with a picture of a couple of paper boys and 7 radio commercials for the Chronicle, believed to date from the late 1960s.  He's asked if anybody can identify the announcer.  I wasn't around Houston much in that era and there were many voices on the radio I wasn't familiar with.  I've entered a guess, anyway.

Give 'em a listen and see if you can help, or just give 'em a listen.
