Milwaukee Area Radio Enthusiasts

November 16, 2014 Notes and Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by President Mark Higgins at 2:05 PM.  Seven members were present.  The presentation for the meeting was a discussion of the evolution of the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays from the Golden Age of Radio through today.  The gradual disappearance of Thanksgiving due to the encroachment of Black Friday, and the elongation of Christmas with the start of Christmas tunes on radio around November 1st, offset by Christmas’s complete disappearance on the day after Christmas, although the traditional Christmas season does not end until January 6th, were all discussed, along with our memories of the Holiday traditions of old, especially those perpetuated by Jack Benny, Guy Lombardo, our own Billie the Brownie, and others.

New Year’s Eve, however, has remained relatively untouched, with it continuing to be a night of dancing, eating and imbibing to welcome in the New Year.  The discussion with the members expanded into general memories of the changes made to the downtown Milwaukee area and their memories of the Big Bands at the Eagles Club and shows at the many theaters in the downtown area, most of which are now gone.  Everyone participated in the lively discussion.

The business portion of the meeting included the news that the Colorado OTR club would be closing at the end of 2015 and a report from Gordy, the newsletter editor, that included a request for any of the members to submit articles for inclusion in the future newsletters (including recollections of the good old days similar to the contributions to today’s discussion – a discussion in which everyone participated.  This proves that everyone potentially has something to offer to the newsletter).  Also, members were reminded to get their dues in, if they haven’t already.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:15 PM.

Pewaukee, WIPictures of a huge storm (1952) and High School  fire (7-14-1953)

On June 21, 1954 I joined the U.S. Navy along with three of my high school classmates, Rich Slates, Clarence Schrubbe and Jim Prag. Clarence died 11-7-2002 and Jim died 4-28-2006. Rich is living in Florida. The following are pictures of that part of my life.

Great Lakes, IL: I took my basic training at Great Lakes, Illinois.

Norman, OKI went to Aviation Prepatory school in Norman, Oklahoma.

Lakehurst, NJ: I went to Aerographer's Mate School to become a weather observer. This is the site of the famous Hinderberg crash.

Yokosuka, Japan: After all of my training I was a full fledged weather observer. I was stationed at the Yokosuka Naval Base from April 29, 1955 to February 21, 1957. I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked, but I did take some. I was an Aerographer’s Mate and worked in the Fleet Weather Central.

Mieko: This is the story of our 2002 trip to Ota, Japan to place Fumiko's sister's ashes next to her father's ashes.

Ota: In August of 2002 Fumiko's sister Mieko Wilkins died. In October of that same year we went to Ota, Japan to have her ashes placed next to that of her father's. These are pictures of that trip.

Sano: Kyoko took us on an excursion to the Ashikaga Porcelain Museum which is located in Sano. There are pieces in the museum that are over 2,000 years old.

NIKKO NATIONAL PARK: Nikko is the site of the most extravagant display of religious architecture in all Japan. This treasure trove of shrines, mausoleums and temples, all richly gilded, intricately carved, and painstakingly rendered, is unsurpassed in design and craftsmanship, but the concept of “simple,” the cornerstone of Japanese art and taste, is just not applicable.

Kanayama: Teruko drove us to Kanayama and spent the day with us. On our way back from the mountain we stopped at Donryusama Temple. This is a Temple where mothers take their babies to have them named. Sakae came here to have Teruko named.

Sendai: The city of Sendai, an old castle town, lies in northern Honshu, 10 km/6 miles from the Pacific coast. Situated amid wooded hills, it is known as the ‘city of forests’. It is the chief town of Miyagi prefecture and the political. cultural and economic centre of the Tohoku region, The city’s main industries are foodstuffs, woodworking, electrical appliances and metal-processing; traditional craft products are lacquer ware and wooden dolls.

Ashikaga is the site of a temple.

FujiyamaWe left early in the morning and did not return back home until late evening.We were taken to Mt. Fuji with Akira doing the driving. He drove all day and it was a long day. We : 

Hiroshima is the chief town of its prefecture, and lies on the Inland Sea in western Honshu. Traversed by six arms of the river Ota, the city extends into Hiroshima Bay in the pattern of a human hand. Hiroshima gained a tragic place in history when it became the target of an atom bomb in 1945. Now rebuilt, it is the largest city and the administrative, educational and tourist centre of the Chugoku district.

Tokyo: The day and a half that we were in Tokyo it never stopped raining. The pictures will bear this out. It was cold, wet and uncomfortable, we had a marvelous time. Such a vibrant city and so much to see. It is ashamed that we had such a short time there, but this was a totally unexpected trip. Fumiko and I had no plans to go to Tokyo. The family got together and gave us this all expense paid day and a half. What a surprise for both of us.
