Why is this thread about Jolly John, but Cleaver gets the bigger picture?

Btw, Jack, Ron Robinson will be over here this summer for the Hall of Fame induction at Nat Bailey. It would be a great time to get him and Jim Robson together to speak with them.

I HATE those pictures too.
I'm almost afraid to see which one Jack will dig up next, the really awful one of me with a perm back in the '80's?
I don't look like any of those anymore but approaching 65, who does?
The most accurate picture of me is the one I use on Facebook.
That also is several years old but looks more the way I do today.
As many radio people do, I HATE having my picture taken.
That's why there are so few around.

How about a sketch artist paid to make us look better.

I love looking for pictures - don't take away my fun.

Mike has a face for radio - and you have to meet him in person to realize his real charm. Join him

If bibs are required, that must mean Jack Bennest will be there!
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
