WWOK Stock Market Reporter Jim Matavy on the right with friend of his. Out in Hialeah at a cross country scramble. It was fun, the dealer gave all the jocks new Yamaha 175cc bikes & we proceeded to wreak them. - Pat Appleson 1973


Larry Gatlin had just signed with Columbia and they rented the Miss Florida boat on the 79th. Street Causeway to have Larry sing his stuff for invited guests. He had done my show earlier that afternoon & I sat in the front row. The invited guests were so rude that finally Larry stopped playing and cussed them out. It was fabulous. Larry & I have be friends ever since. - Pat Appleson 1973

Dan Halyburton covering the GOP Convention - Miami Beach 1972

This is how it looked on the last day of the GOP convention. The lefties were out in droves to protest anything they could think of. But mostly protesting another four year term of Richard Nixon. I got caught in a cross fire with a couple of CBS camera men. We were rushed by the Yippies and the National Guard saved us. After an hour in the infirmary to get the tear gas out of my eyes, it was on to the Nikon repair center inside the convention hall. Nikon repaired my camera on the spot, no charge. I use Nikon to this day. - Pat Appleson 2007
