John Rayburn loved to entertain Convention attendees with his famous spoonerisms. You can hear him perform them on my latest SPERDVAC Presents at the 1993 SPERDVAC convention.

John writes:

Fresh out of the Navy, I got my first job in radio at age 19, two years before the first officially licensed TV stations; moved into TV in 1950s as my career continued that lasted 62 years.  I worked as a sports and news anchor, talk show host, and whatever came along.  My TV newscast attained the highest Share of Audience rating of any major market TV newscast in the nation. 

  I had reports/appearances on the Today Show, Huntley Brinkley news, Walter Cronkite News, NBC Monitor, NBC News on the Hour, and other specials.  I also did play-by-play coverage of baseball, football, basketball, hockey, so I was at least versatile.

  I met and interviewed many national personalities in business, politics, entertainment.  These included such as Ronald Reagan when he was still just president of The Screen Actors Guild, John F. Kennedy when he was still just a Senator, Senator Everett Dirksen, Jimmy Carter on the campaign trail, a special CBS coverage of Richard Nixon and Harry Truman.

  More in line with the Friday show, I met and had conversation interviews with Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Stan Kenton, Charlie Barnet, Woody Herman, Nat King Cole, Jo Stafford, June Christy, Mel Tormé, Buddy Rich, Frankie Carle, and countless others.

  I have written seventeen books (4 fiction; one western and three mystery/adventure), travel, and more.  I have recorded about five dozen audiobooks, many available on Audible/Amazon and Blackstone Publishing.  I guess I must have gotten callouses on my vocal cords because my voice still functions.  Heck, I'll be 95 in July so I'm pretty lucky.
