Tommy Jett to be Inducted into Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame

The Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame will officially induct its second class of broadcast honorees on May 4th during a gala event. Sixteen broadcasters will be inducted, including Chattanooga's own Tommy Jett, who will be inducted into the Career category.

“These broadcasters have all distinguished themselves in the industry and in this state,” said Hall of Fame President Ralph Vaughn. Some have entertained you locally. Some have become prominent on the national stage. Some brought radio to your communities for the first time and some have helped build their communities. But all have made a significant contribution to the broadcast industry.”

Seven people are being inducted in the Career category, which honors those still living and in many cases, still working in broadcasting. They are:

Les Acree: Legendary country programmer and consultant who worked at stations in Memphis (WMC, WGKX and WMQM), Nashville (WKDA), and Knoxville (WIVK). He was named Program Director of the Year by Billboard in 1991, 1994 and 1997 and by the Gavin Report in 1998.

Charlie Chase: Best known as the host of The Crook and Chase Show and The Crook and Chase Countdown, Charlie Chase worked in east Tennessee, before coming to Nashville. There, he worked at WMAK and WSM before also having a TV career on Nashville’s Channel 4 and The Nashville Network.

Rick Dees: He rose to national fame while working mornings at WMPS in Memphis, when he wrote and recorded “Disco Duck,” which sold six-million copies and won a People’s Choice Award. Dees moved to WHBQ in Memphis and later to Los Angeles. He was Billboard’s Top 40/CHR major market “Air Personality of the Year” for 10 consecutive years.

Tommy Jett: One of the original “Jet-Fli” guys on 50,000 watt WFLI, the name Tommy Jett Reynolds has been synonymous with top 40 rock in the Chattanooga area for more than 50 years. He has hosted country and oldies shows on several stations and can now be heard on his website, TommyJett.com. He also emcees shows and is active in charity events and high school reunions with his “Tommy Jett Music Machine.”

George Klein: Klein has a 50-year radio and tV career in Memphis, starting with WHHM’s high school football broadcasts and baseball broadcasts for the Memphis Chicks at WHBQ. He worked at KWAM and WMC, and was a close friend of Elvis Presley. He toured with Elvis before returning to WHBQ to host Channel 13’s Talent Party, which ran for 12 years. He later hosted Memphis Sounds for WYPL. He now has a show on the Elvis Channel on Sirius/XM.

R. M. “Bob” McKay, Jr.: Bob McKay put WKRM in Columbia on the air in 1946. He later launched WPHC/Waverly in 1963, followed by WVRY-FM/Waverly in 1970. He acquired a second station in Columbia and changed its calls to WKOM. Active in numerous community organizations, McKay was a founding member of the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters in 1949, served as its president in 1971 and received the TAB Distinguished Service Award in 1981. He retired in 2008 at the age of 88 after 62 years in radio.

Pat Sajak: A native of Chicago, Sajak was in broadcasting school when he got his first radio job. In 1968, he joined the Army and was sent to Vietnam, where he was a DJ on Armed Forces Radio. He came to Nashville’s WSM-AM in the early 1970s, playing pop in afternoon drive. Sister station WSM-TV (now WSMV) brought him on screen as a staff announcer and later, as weekend weatherman. In 1977, KNBC in Los Angeles hired him to do weather full time. In 1981, Merv Griffin hired him as host of Wheel of Fortune. Besides his continued duties at Wheel, he also hosts The Pat Sajak Baseball Hour, a syndicated radio talk show.

The Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame is also inducting nine persons in the Legacy category. These people have passed away, but are being recognized for the contributions they made to the industry during their careers. They are:

Noel Ball: Known as Nashville’s first flamboyant rock DJ, Ball worked in radio (WKDA, WMAK, WSIX), TV (Saturday Showcase and more on WSIX-TV), artist management and in records as a producer and head of Artists and Repertoire for the Nashville office of DOT Records. While at WMAK, he co-authored (with Alan Nelson and Gene Clark) “Day for Decision,” a spoken oration on American patriotism set to music and recorded by Johnny Sea. It received a Grammy nomination in 1967.

Allen Dennis: He was a top Country and Top 40 air talent during a career that spanned five decades, beginning in the late 1950s. His resume includes stops at WKDA/Nashville, WKGN/Knoxville, WMAK/Nashville, WNOX/Knoxville, KQV/Pittsburgh, WHOO/Orlando, WDXB/Chattanooga, WAAY/Huntsville, WRIP/Chattanooga, WYDE/Birmingham, WGOW/Chattanooga and WSM/Nashville. He also published the Southern Hotline record news sheet in the 1970s.

Tennessee Ernie Ford: Ernest Jennings Ford began his radio career at WOPI-AM in his hometown of Bristol, Tennessee. He studied classical singing at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music before World War II, where he served as a bombardier on a B-29. After the war, he worked in radio in California, and to differentiate himself, created the personality of “Tennessee Ernie,” a wildly exaggerated hillbilly. A singing, acting and TV career followed, and he received three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (radio, records and TV). He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1984, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1990 and into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1994.

Coyote McCloud: He worked at WGOW in Chattanooga as Bill Scott and became Coyote McCloud at WQXI in Atlanta. He became well-known in the early 1970s when he worked evenings on WMAK, Nashville and also worked at WWKX and WZPC. He became one of the most controversial DJs of the 1980s as lead man on The Zoo Crew on WYHY, and was featured in a CBS 48 Hours documentary on shock radio in 1992.

Luke Medley: When Luke Medley put WHUB/Cookeville on the air in 1940, it was the first radio station in middle Tennessee outside Nashville and only the 14th in the state. Medley was instrumental in the growth of Cookeville and Putnam County and held several key political and civic offices. He helped organize the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters and received its Distinguished Service Award in 1981. He was CEO of WHUB-AM and WHUB-FM (added in 1964) for 56 years.

George Mooney: In 1962, George Mooney piloted his boat up the Tennessee River to beat football game traffic and inspired the Vol Navy, one of the most unique traditions in college football. He was the voice of the Vols from 1952 until 1967. In 1958, he took over WKGN in Knoxville and it became Mooney Broadcasting, which included WMAK, WBYQ and WYHY in Nashville, as well as stations in Alabama, Florida and Puerto Rico. The National Sportscasters and Sportswriters selected him three times as Tennessee’s Most Outstanding Broadcaster.

Dewey Phillips: “Daddy-O Dewey” began his career on WHBQ in Memphis in 1949, and was the area’s leading radio personality for nine years with his Red, Hot and Blue Show, a mix of R & B, country boogie-woogie and jazz. The Broadway musical, Memphis, is said to be based loosely on his life and career. On July 8, 1954, Phillips was the first DJ to play “That’s All Right/Blue Moon of Kentucky,” the debut Sun Records release by a young artist named Elvis Presley.

Drue Smith: A pioneering female broadcaster, Drue Smith was first a newspaper journalist at the Chattanooga Times. In the 1940s and 1950s, she was a society and political commentator for WAPO, WDOD and WDEF, where she also hosted a daily TV show. After moving to Nashville in the 1960s, she had a long run as legislative reporter for the Tennessee Radio Network and WLAC Radio. In 1984, state lawmakers passed a resolution naming her their 133rd member. Following her death in 2001, they named the Capitol Hill Press Room in her honor.

Rufus Thomas: He was one of the most influential DJs in radio history, spinning tunes on WDIA/Memphis from 1948-2001. The self-professed "world's oldest teenager" was also renowned for recording hits like "Walking The Dog" and "Do The Funky Chicken," as well as best-selling duets with his daughter, Carla. During his career, Thomas received numerous awards and supported many local and national charities. The street in Memphis which bears his name crosses Beale Street, and the city of Porretta, Italy has designated Rufus Thomas Park as the site of an annual Soul Festival held in his honor each year.

This year’s Legendary Station honor goes to WDIA, Memphis. WDIA was the first radio station in America that was programmed by African-Americans for African Americans. It empowered a huge segment of the population that was, until the late 1940s, largely unrecognized. Its achievement was all the more extraordinary because it occurred during a time of institutionalized racism. WDIA began broadcasting with 250 watts at 730 on the AM dial; yet soon became the top station in the city. In 1954, the station received a power increase to 50,000 watts at 1070 on the dial. Suddenly, it had the power to reach 10% of the total African-American population in the country. Its impact was enormous, and radio stations from other cities sent staff to Memphis to study how WDIA worked, in order to establish African-American stations in their owncities. The home of legendary DJ Rufus Thomas, names like B. B. King and Isaac Hayes have also graced WDIA’s broadcasts over the years.

The Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame’s second annual induction banquet is set for Saturday, May 4, at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Murfreesboro. Tickets are $75 per person (or $600 for a table of 10) and can be purchased through the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters. To inquire about tickets, contact TAB’s Doug Combs at 615.365.1840Tommy Jett to be Inducted into Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame

Court records filed in Los Angeles show that Arnett has filed for his marriage to Poehler to be dissolved. Arnett filed a divorce petition on April 8, citing irreconcilable differences between the two comedians. He is seeking joint custody. The couple had been together for nine years -- and separated last September. Poehler stars in NBC's "Parks and Recreation" while Arnett stars in the CBS' series "The Millers."

JENNY McCARTHY IS ENGAGED

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some people go on daytime talk shows to plug a book, movie or TV show. Jenny McCarthy was on "The View" yesterday to plug the fact that she's getting hitched.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jena (JEE'-nah) Irene is so good on "American Idol" J-Lo had make up a word to describe her. J-Lo says she "Jena-fies" every song she does. The judges also had nothing by praise for Caleb Johnson, as the singers did selections picked by their competitors. But Harry Connick Junior says Jessica Meuse (MYOOS) needs to work on her rhythm. He says she should dance to some hip-hop in her hotel room. The judges weren't that into Sam Woolf, either. Connick says Sam is still a work in progress.

"SURVIVOR"-LJ VOTED OFF

UNDATED (AP) -- Tasha has brains and a good memory -- which served her well on last night's "Survivor." She was an original member of the Brains tribe when the season started. Last night's Immunity Challenge had the castaways testing their memories by matching color tiles in the order host Jeff Probst had held them up. Tasha wins and was safe in the Tribal Council vote. Not so for LJ, a former member of the Beauty tribe. He was aced out in a blindside, after Tony the cop said he was bringing his bag of tricks to the council vote. LJ says there's a difficult balance between being patient and being assertive -- and he got it wrong.
