Comments: I was a producer-director stationed at AFKN-TV Seoul in 1959.
Looking for contact with others of same era. also any websites,
names/addresses etc of guys that served then.

I do recall a few names, but looking back 50+years it's difficult.
Those I recall are: Frank O'Brien, an announcer, also a Lt.Coleman.
Dave Bendel, Peter Barth, & John Otterson, a civilian.

Currently, I'm a retired advertising & fashion photographer, dividing
my time bet.Stamford, CT & Lake George, NY. Hope to hear from you.

did Radio and Tv news broadcasts.I think his last name was Sullivan from
Kentucky I believe. Also there was a TV Technician with the name Al
Borzamoskie, and I have butchered this name, but it had most of the letters of
the alphabet.
We also had a Miss Kim,Miss Chung, and Miss Pak who worked in the record
department. Please reply if you were there in the years listed above.

City and State: PORTLAND OR

Unit: 8214TH ARMY UNIT

Service or Relationship: ARMY VETERAN

Comments: Hq. AFKN during that period was located at the (Sounds like KyungBuk) girls high school away from downtown Taegu. We were in the Front Quanset Hut, of 4 huts ion a row. The others contained Radio KILROY, the production studios, and personel sleeping quarters. Next to these was a transient personel tent. Behind were three more quanset huts containing the Officers quarters, Supply, and the movie theatre. Next to these was a tent used by the Korean laundry crew. I have pictures of the small base taken from the air. They are on line, however there is an error saying the picture was taken in Pusan. It was Taegu. I would enjoy hearing from anyone stationed at any of the radio stations during that period of time. The stations with the network I can recall were named after persons or things that were wonderers or moved around alot. they include; Kilroy in Taegu, Homesteader in Pusan, Vagabond on Seoul, Comet on the west coast, Meteor at Pohong Dong,Cavalier near Seoul, Gypsy up north, Nomad up north, Mercury, do not remember the location. Colonel Morris Milner was the unit commander at that time. First Sgts. were Sgt Takahashi, Sgt Yourg, and MasterSgt. Sanford. Sgt Sanford passed away last year. He retired as a Vice President of a New York Bank. He lived in Florida and I kept in touch with him via the telephone. I would really like to hear from anybody assigned to AFKN In 1954 and 1955. Best Regards to All.

Keywords: Assigned to Hq. AFKN in Jan. 1954, in Taegu. Was assigned for one month to the 7th Transportation Port Command in Pusan, April-May 1955.

Unit: AFKN NEWS, SEOUL

Comments: I served as a television and radio newscaster at AFKN from March 1961 to July 1962. Lt. Colonel Bartoni was our unit commander. We were there when Park Chung Hee overthrew the corrupt government of Sigmun Rhee. We also did live television productions--a Tonight Show and we did a full live production of the play Journey's End, led by Peter Sander. (The play, a WWI tragedy was revived on B'way last year--2007). Ed Graham (from Baltimore) was a very popular DJ. Others on the newsroom staff: Wes Elliot, our ranking NCO; Jim Briggs (Indiana), Les Hopkins (Pittsburg), Chris Glenn (later CBS news radio). Others I remember: Bob Towers (LA?); Jerry Mosey (Iowa City), Signal Corps photographer.

Keywords: Armed Forces Korean Network, 1961-62, Seoul. Long after the war, but unsettling years. Interested in hearing from those who served in AFKN then.

Comments: Probably not. Radio Meteor was located on the 1st Marine Air Wing Airbase at Pohang where I was station engineer from approx. Dec. 1953 to Dec. 1954. As the only Army personnel on the base during that period, I sure was the odd man.

I just found this site so I'm putting a note in a bottle and dropping it in the water.
