Before 790 AM in Louisville was WAKY, it was WGRC. This is the front of a postcard with a photo
 of the WGRC staff taken during the Big Flood in 1937. Anybody recognize any of these folks?
This photo was taken during a December, 1940 WGRC remote at the Jefferson County Jail.

Hal Smith (L) and Bill Ward at WAKY (1960) - Hal Smith writes: "Just after this photo was taken, we were visited by Cassius Clay, who had just returned from the Rome Olympics where he won the gold medal. A photo was made of the occasion; I wish I knew what happened to it."
