  1. just wondering if WFUN, WAME, or WINZ was competing with them yet? I’m amazed that it would be almost another decade until someone like Bill Drake would appear and lay down the law to “shut up and play the music”.

  2. Thanks! I was 5 years old at that time and gotta admit I don’t remember this. I started taping aircks on my little 5 inch reel to reel in 1963. I like the way he was “Bob” Kaye at the Sports desk, BUT “Robert” Kaye on the news in later years.

  3. WINZ only did top 40 at night. WAME was still WMMA, and played country music. WFUN was still about 4 years away. 800 was still WMBM.

  4. And later of course, Robert Kaye (who was a lawyer) became first an assistant Dade County State Attorney and even later had a long career as a Dade County Circuit Court Judge. Judge Kay presided over the famous trial against Big Tobacco, in which he decided a $145 billion verdict the cigarette industry. Quite a man and QUITE a series of careers!
