Frank Jolle, KBOX Dallas TX November 21, 1966 (07:12)
. . . I have premature gray hair, so I had my hair died blue so no one would even notice it . . .
[Description by contributor Gary S. McBrayer]
As illustrated by this 'check, Frank Jolle was a crazy man at night on KBOX. I think he pretty much did what he wanted during his show, regardless of the prescribed format. Of note on this 'check, taken between 10 and 11 pm on November 21, 1966, is the number of local & regional hits that get airplay records by These Few, The Exotics, Jade of Stone, and Dana Rollin's version of Winchester Cathedral.
At this time, Dallas had become a rather hot market for regional breakouts with KBOX, KLIF and the Sump 'n Else Dance Show all taking chances, and giving local and regional bands airtime. Also of interest to Dallasites is Frank's announcement of an eyewitness spotting of the "Lady of The Lake", a legendary ghost that supposedly haunted the White Rock Lake area of Dallas.
