Thanks so much to Rick Loader for sending a few WHAS items in honor of the station's 100th birthday. "Microphone Memoirs" was written by Credo Fitch Harris, who was hired in 1922 by Courier Journal owner Judge Robert Worth Bingham to manage the launch of WHAS Radio. This 1937 book by Credo Harris reflects upon the many innovations achieved during the first 15 years of WHAS, Kentucky's first radio station. Here are a few samples of Credo's notes.

WHAS is the most powerful radio signal in Kentucky. It can be streamed worldwide but its over-the-air signal pierces atop most of the contiguous 48 United States. WHAS Radio will turn 100 next July, pumping out news, interviews, and information 24/7. Whether we're talking to Dr. Dunkenstein, Dr. Fauci, or Dr. Pepper, we are delivering audio and video content to keep our community informed. Thanks for hanging with us for our first century! That's our boy Ian Vertrees above. He's a deejay on WQMF and the daily producer and voice contributor on the Terry Meiners Show. The iHeart machine moves because it is fueled by strong employees. #WHAS100 🎧🎙 @MandyConnell is one of the greatest talk show talents in America, once dominating midday
Those are some good dudes. Joe Donovan, Doug McElvein, Van Vance, Wayne Perkey, Jack Fox, Milton Metz, and I stood for that photo in 1993. They're all outstanding broadcasters who helped maintain WHAS Radio's legendary status as one of America's giants in news/talk. Joe and Milton are gone. Doug McElvein was on the radio last month and can be found in an earlier post on this website. The other fellows will all sit for interviews in the near future. I've been speaking with one prominent WHAS voice every week leading up to the station's 100th birthday in July 2022. I LOVED catching up with my friend @terrymeiners on @840WHAS radio today. We talked about family, @JudeRedfield, #Covid_19 my life in tv news and my
Our celebration continues as we roll toward the 100th birthday of WHAS Radio, Louisville's 50,000 watt blowtorch.

Visit this link for my interviews with Gary Burbank, Liz Curtis, Doug McElvein, Cindi Sullivan, and Mark Levin. Now on to more great conversations with WHAS Radio legends! We will continue these visits every Friday at 4:35 PM until the 100th birthday of WHAS on July 18, 2022. 🎧 #WHAS100 🎙 The brainiest of all @840WHAS colleagues is likely Barry Bernson.
