Bob Nichols, KJR

Bob Nichols started as a singer on the P-I station KFC in 1921.  By 1927, he was KJR’s sports director and doing some of Seattle’s first play-by-play broadcasts.   In this photograph given to co-worker Homer Pope, his image is superimposed on a microphone of the era.  The autograph reads:  “Broadcasting best wishes to Homer Pope.  We’re friends even when the ‘mike’ is off balance and the cord doesn’t reach.”
