Picture ofGary Corry
This is Part Two of a two-part composite of Gary McKee on WQXI in Atlanta, recorded between 1974 and 1976. Actually, it's more about Willis The Guard who evolves into Willis Caswell during this composite. A lengthy portion features substitute Gary Lee Corry for the vacationing Gary McKee, but Willis is the star attraction with either host. (Corry passed away in September, 2010. He was 74.)

According to comments entered for Part One, Willis Caswell AKA Willis The Guard was Bob Carr. He worked with Gary at WQXI/94Q from 1973 to 1988. Bob passed away 10/27/08 at the age of 66.

The Reverend Billy Graham Cracker is heard twice, along with an interview with Lester and The Cadillac Cowboys, a letter from Momma, the Howard Hughes Will, a Message to Elvis, the Changing Of The Guards at Tower Place, and the 1976 Bi-Centennial incandescent Fireworks Display, launched from the roof of Tower Place, though everyone forgot their camera. There's also a very strange call from Captain Humble & Brian at WNOE in New Orleans, and the sad story of Gary's blind date, with the Shortest Song In The World.
