Subject: RE: Obit: Mitch Jayne of the Dillards August 2010
In 1956 Mitch was a disc jockey at Radion Station KSMO in Salem, Mo.
There was a speech contest on that station for the surrounding high schools. I remember that he was nice to all of us contestants. In 2005 I was President of the Bunker, Mo. Alumni Association and we invited him to give a presentation. He talked about performing with the Dillards and working with Andy Griffith, and he ended by saying Mayberry was a lot like Bunker, ans Bunker was a lot like Mayberry.
As he use to open his radio show with, "From the first dead limb up on the west side of a white oak tree at the head of Salem's own Hickory Hollar," THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
