Joe Rumore
Country Music DJ Hall of Fame (1999)

About the Disc Jockey / Emcee

Back in the late 1940's WAPI in Birmingham, Alabama had a show called the "Yawn Patrol" that was hosted by Joe Rumore. He had a cheery way of signing on 'Hell-o there - this is Joe Rumore'. They said that was the signal for every housewife within listening distance to drop everything and just listen to the radio for an hour of "everything in radio". And Joe did get piles of letters, and many of them were marked personal.
