Here’s a classic faux pas rarely heard on the always-tight Channel 95. It’s the Tom Murphy program in October, 1969. Newsman Frank Thompson is trying his best to report a major traffic mess on the Mercer Island Floating Bridge. But in the audible background Tim Burgess is unaware Thompson’s on the air. Murphy’s clever wit brings a nearly speechless response from Thompson, something rarely heard in Frank’s five years with KJR. Burgess, of course, later became a Seattle City Council member. Thanks to Norm Gregory for this clip, which runs about one minute.
