WRCV 1060 Philadelphia PA Mac McGuire


McGuire was this blog editor,  RACampbell's  mentor in the 1950s's at KYW WRCV and WPEN in Philadelphia. "Every Saturday for three or four years I would spend the day with him. Mornings in the radio studio, afternoon lunch and restacking his record racks at several Woolworth stores and evening at Channel 3 basement studio for his TV show. He paid me a dollar and lunch. Great experience. I attended his funeral in the early '60s in Pitman NJ."

"As a fatherless kid he took me under his wing with professional and personal advice. He had me read the baseball scores on his shows, grab records from the library for him and assist with the comfort needs of his TV celebrity guests".
