TV & Radio Mirror Magazine 1971

This was an article about my dad from “TV & Radio Mirror” magazine circa 1971. Yep, that’s my dad and I in the photos along with my mom and little brother Todd; I was 7 years old.

The magazine was a national gossip magazine and this particular issue from June 1971 had Lucille Ball on the cover and a “story” on how her son Desi Arnaz Jr. was the actual father of Patty Duke’s baby (the baby being Sean Astin of “Lord of The Rings” fame.)

There were also articles on Burt Reynolds, Mike Farrel of “M*A*S*H” and of course, my dad, who, for a simple radio dj, was pretty well known at the time. The article states that autograph seekers would “run right past Johnny Cash, Buck Owens and Glen Campbell” (all of whom were actually family friends of ours) just to get my dad’s autograph.
