DETROIT FREE PRESS: WJBK/WKNR ‘New Programming Pays Off’
A MCRFB Note: The Detroit Daily Press went to press for the first time on Wednesday, July 22, 1964. The Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News were effectively still out on strike (beginning July 14) when this article went to print. Having reached an agreement on November 23, the Detroit dailies resumed publications on Tuesday, November 24, 1964.

54 YEARS AGO. JANUARY 1964
A KEENER NOTE: Sam Holman? He was only on WKNR for several weeks during January 1964. Sam Holman filled the void left open when Jim Sanders left for Milwaukee (December 1963) during which time WKNR awaited the anticipated arrival (by month’s end) of Jerry Goodwin from WQAM, Miami.
