Tribute to a Seattle Radio Legend
Here's a classic Larry story. It was sent in by Joe Coburn, another great Seattle radio voice who is proud to list Larry as his mentor.
It was in the early 70's -- 72-73 prolly -- and KOMO was the only station in town with an airplane reporting traffic. Teddy Garlatz, Sr. was the pilot. A very nervous fellow to have such a job. KJR, KING, KOL, KIRO all listened to the 2-way conversations between Teddy and KOMO to embellish their reporting and none of them acknowledged the fact.
