In memory of our friend Fred Foy, we are offering
an online "reprint" of some of the material from
the August 1999 issue of
The Jot 'Em Down
Journal
.

It says a lot about Mr. Foy's popularity with fans
of radio when we noticed that issue was one of
the first to sell out when we again started
offering back issues for sale!

The cover depicts the meeting of Fred Foy and
Robert Cates.  Robert is the son of the late Opie
Cates, the incredibly gifted clarinetist who
handled the music for the majority of the
half-hour
Lum and Abner series.  Opie also
played a character on the program.

In case you're wondering, the printed cover of
the August 1999 issue was in black and white.

HI-YO SILVER!

Here's an unusual shot we ran across while searching
for images.  This is a frame grab from a mini-DV tape.  We
were rehearsing our script with Mr. Foy in one of the
Lime Tree Inn rooms prior to the 1999 NLAS Convention.  
At left, Sam Brown seems to be removing the staple from
his script.  On the table is the "phone ringer" sound
effect device built by member Chuck Anders.  In the
middle is Fred Foy, and seated in the foreground is Tim
Hollis.  Both seem to be listening to Donnie Pitchford.  
Maybe someone should warn them!
