Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — WHO Radio

Updated Picker Imageby  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


My latest pick is a treasure trove of information about the early days of W-H-O Radio, Des Moines, Iowa.  

WHO Radio BuildingW-H-O was the second radio station purchased by the Developer of Chiropractic, BJ Palmer.  It is also where Dutch Reagan got his start in show business as a radio sports announcer.  After some motion pictures and a governorship, Ronald Reagan landed the gig as the 40th president of the United States. 

I found a compilation of newsletters bound in a book entitled “Our Home Office.”  The newsletters originated from Bankers Life Insurance company, the original owners of Station W-H-O. The book contained the very first issue of Our Home Office, published April 1, 1927, and then continued biweekly, through November 15, 1930.

Bankers Life president, Gerard Nollen, stated that the purpose of the newsletter was to “promote loyalty and enthusiasm” among his employees. I got the sense while reading through these newsletters that Nollen would have been a good person to work for and that he encouraged his team to use their talents.

Chiro-Picker’s Fresh Pick — BJ and Mabel “Listen In” to Station WOC

Antique Collector, Todd Waters, is "The Chiro-Picker"

by  Todd Waters, aka “The Chiro-Picker” – SpinalColumnRadio featured blogger


Tribute Song Brought Back to Life!

[A couple months back, our Chiro-Picker posted an article that showcased some of his coolest chiropractic radio finds from the days of old.  One such find was the sheet music to a song written and composed for BJ Palmer's radio station, WOC, by vaudeville singer-dancer Nat Ozmon.  It was a tribute to both BJ and his wife, Mabel.  It's been some time since the notes of this 1923 piece have made their way to the keys of a piano -- as such the Picker issued an invitation for someone to step up and bring it back to life.  ...Well, I just couldn't resist.  With my love for chiropractic history -- especially its radio history -- the sheet music beckoned me.  And so, with the help of three willing participants from my church (Russ and Ardis Swank on vocals and Mary Stewart on piano), Nat's song to the old W-O-C sprung back to life.  And from that not only was an audio podcast, by yours truly, inspired (SCR episode 105), but another installment of BJ TV.  What would BJ think??.... Well, you'll just have to watch the video below to find out.  And then, of course tune into the audio podcast to squeeze the nectar out of this one.  My wife assures me that this is my best one yet!  (She always says that).  Below the video is an article from the Chiro-Picker which gives you some more of his thoughts on the song and some behind the scenes information related to this particular offering of BJ TV.  Oh... and I'll be back with some extra info in the DC Angle at the bottom. -- dr. tom]
