Before WDEF Radio moved from 3300 Broad to 2615 S. Broad St., Luther called me into his office. He was cleaning out his desk and ran across some rare pictures.
Before the days of WDEF FM and WDEF TV. Luther broadcast on WDEF AM 1370. He said the station worked with the Chattanooga Kiwanis Club to host a Christmas Party at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium. Thousands attended.
Luther said he thought Jimmy Demayo directed the orchestra. Luther didn’t remember who played Santa or who the chief was.
Luther thought this event was 1950 or 1951, but he wasn’t sure.
