Philadelphia / Boston / DC / Baltimore


In the mid 1950's this kid was a go'fer at hometown stations
KYW / WRCV and WPEN in Philadelphia...

Campbell memories: "I wanted to be in radio when I was in my early teens. In 1940`s I attended broadcasts of WFIL's 'Magic Lady' and WCAU's Bill Campbell Sports show...(I won a baseball bat). In the 1950's I spent many summer days at KYW with Vince Lee and Bill Givens, Jack Pyle and Bob Benson. NBC took over as WRCV...I spent Saturdays with DJ Mac McGuire mornings in the studio, afternoons restocking his 5 & 10 record bins and in the evening at his TV-3 show. In late 50's with him at WPEN. A great influence in mapping my future career in broadcasting."
See link to Mac McGuire above, with links to WRCV photos of 1956.

"I attended Emerson College and worked at WFGM in Fitchburg on the weekends-my first paid shift $25 about 15 hours. Took a bus out there on Saturday morning. Worked Saturday Night shift, slept overnight at rooming house. Breakfast special Sunday morning at 5 and 10 store then crossed street for Sunday shift Noon to Midnight. Took commuter train back to Boston on Monday morning for classes. Expenses totaled $24.75 profit was 25 cents".
