The Norm Garr Collection

The announcing bug hit Norm Garr very early in life, when among a collection of birthday gifts there was a "working" microphone and speaker. Hours of listening to KFWB and KHJ in the 60's kept the "announcing" bug alive, including many opportunities to sit in on the Johnny Williams show at the Boss Radio station.

His first real DJ job was in the summer of 1970 as a weekender at KUDU, Ventura, CA., a "BOSS" country station that had every Drake-type jingle, a SOLID GOLD weekend, et. al.

For his senior project at San Diego State University, Norm interviewed a number of air personalities, including Robert W. Morgan and B. Mitchell Reed. (Some day, down the road, those interviews might show up in the Repository).

Also, during his time at SDSU from 1970-1972, Norm netted some "golden" time with legendary programmer Ron Jacobs at KGB, where Norm was interning — and that was after a previous internship at KCBQ with Buzz Bennett & Rich Brother Robbin.

Bobby Ocean, Shotgun Tom Kelly, Eric Chase, Barry Kaye, Christopher Cane, K.O. Bailey and Chuck Browning were among the personalities working in San Diego at the time. WOW!

After returning to LA to spend three years working as a news assistant at KNXT-TV and a sports producer at KFI radio, Norm did weekends and fill-in again at KUDU, and then KACY in Ventura, CA., until he went to Longview, WA. for two years as a news director and operations manager.

Norm returned to LA to pursue his dream of working in network television, which he did for three years at NBC. His "executive assistant" roles have taken him to the every major motion picture studio in Hollywood, including eight years at Disney and almost four years at MGM/UA.

Norm is presently (and possibly, permanently) retired, but very busy doing all the things he never had the time to do while working 50-60 hours weeks in the "biz."

The Repository thanks Norm Garr for sharing!

The KHJ History of Rock & Roll was the first "Rockumentary", produced by KHJ Program Director Ron Jacobs.

Following the unprecedented success of this legendary broadcast, Jacobs left KHJ later that year. RKO made the show available to the other stations in their group, narrated by station-specific talent. When RKO was done with it, Drake-Chenault offered a re-recorded version in syndication three times between 1972 and 1982.

An edited version (no jingle) of the last release, narrated by Bill Drake, was still in syndication as of 2006.

The morse code REELRADIO "copymark" included in these exhibits is a reminder that duplication and distribution for trade or sale is illegal and inappropriate.

Do not copy, do not trade, do not sell.

This exhibit, contributed by Norm Garr, presents Hour 16 and the first half-hour of Hour 17 of the First and Original History Of Rock And Roll, as broadcast by KHJ in the wee morning hours of February 22, 1969. Norm's recordings are copies from the tapes given to listeners who won a complete set of this original HR&R. They are one generation down from the masters, containing program content only - no news, no commercials.

We estimate the content in this part was broadcast between 3AM and (estimated) about 4:30 AM. Our host is Robert W. Morgan.

The "Pop Music" segment of the History is continued, focusing on 1959 and 1960, spotlighting performers at the top of the charts as the Fifties became the Sixties. Classic torch songs by divas Brenda Lee and Miss Toni Fisher are featured, while handsome young men with big hair were all the rage, fueled by their appearances on Dick Clark's American Bandstand.

This exhibit, contributed by Norm Garr, presents Hour 18 and the last half-hour of Hour 17 of the First and Original History Of Rock And Roll, as broadcast by KHJ in the wee morning hours of Saturday, February 22, 1969.

Norm's recordings are copies from the tapes given to listeners who won a complete set of this original HR&R. They are one generation down from the masters, containing program content only - no news, no commercials. We estimate the content in this part was broadcast between (estimated) 4:30 AM and 6:00 AM. Our host is Robert W. Morgan.

The "Pop Music" segment of the History is continued, focusing on 1960 and 1961. We're gonna do The Twist, and it goes like this: We learn that the first fuzz guitar effect in a popular song was a technical difficulty, hear a demonstration of the first popular record in 5/4 time, but are clueless as to why a song about an agricultural pest should top the charts in 1961. Perhaps people liked remembering those old cotton fields back home?

You'll also hear a rare mistake in the script. The hit by Sammy Davis, Jr. was not from Fiddler On The Roof, but from Stop The World, I Want To Get Off.

This segment of the original 48-hour Rockumentary was broadcast between 8 and 9 PM. Our host is Robert W. Morgan.

Continued from the previous hour featuring 1963, much of the Top 40 music presented in this hour is memorable. The "blindfold test" comments from Phil Spector demonstrate his early genius, a genius that decayed into homicidal madness forty years later.

Our host is Robert W. Morgan.

This chapter of the original Rockumentary identifies 1964 as the first year of chart success for The Rolling Stones and The Temptations, examines the connection between Little Richard and The Beatles, and describes "the beginning of the rule of groups over rock 'n' roll".

It begins with an exclusive 93KHJ History of Rock and Roll introductory perfomance, and is followed by the dazzling and superb production of Bill Mouzis.

After the introductory artists, Dionne Warwick and her hit records get a lot of attention. Then, about 30 minutes in, there is a brilliant composite of what are mostly considered "novelty tunes" today, named "non-singing-singers" here. This is not to be missed. Warwick, Ray Charles and Marvin Gaye are featured with spoken-word history.

Keep in mind that this program was broadcast in February, 1969. Woodstock was yet to happen, and Monterey was the pinnacle of contemporary music performance. Both Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton have comments, along with Producer Tom Dowd (Layla).

Complete closing credits for the production are included in this segment, and there's a honor roll of RKO heavies from all over the country. It's obvious that even as this final hour was broadcast, there were already plans for distribution to other RKO stations.

Thanks to Norm Garr for the final 21 hours of the Original KHJ History of Rock And Roll.
