Reggie’s talent for broadcasting and his growing fan base made it possible for him to work at Norfolk Virginia’s WRAP, Wilmington, Delaware’s WAMS, and as the night time broadcaster for WHAT in Philadelphia. Reggie’s popularity and skill took him to Chicago’s WHFC. During his stay in Chicago, he began doing radio commercials and marketing for Al Abrams Pontiac, local department stores, and Bell Telephone. Reggie relocated from Chicago to New York’s WWRL in 1960. In 1964, Reggie along with Georgie Woods became the first Black men in the United States to be part owners of a TV station. Reggie and Georgie, in partnership with Aaron Katz and Leonard Stevens, purchased WPHL Channel 17 in Philadelphia.

"Hi Yo Silver..."

The most popular radio adventure show in history, The Lone Ranger held an audience of millions spellbound for over two decades. Key to its success was the music used on it-music rendered so beautifully, chosen with such delicate precision, that for half a century listeners have frantically searched for an answer to the question, "What was the music used on the Lone Ranger?" This book answers that question and many more, including, "Who performed it?" "Who recorded it?" "When?" "Where?". Set in Detroit, New York, Hollywood, and Mexico City against a backdrop of cliffhanging events that shaped the broadcasting industry, the story is as great an adventure as any heard on the show itself.The Mystery of the Masked Man's Music: A Search for the Music Used on the Lone Ranger Radio Program, 1933-1954
