Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Blog: George Putnam, (1914-2008) R.I.P.
I`ve lived in Los Angeles all my life and listened to George Putnam for most of my adult years.
A few years ago, I had the pleasure to meet him at a fund-raiser for his fellow broadcaster Terry Anderson.
Putnam was so gracious to me that I became an even bigger fan. I love the story he told about his father, during the Depression, being reduced to selling peanuts door to door.
Because of Franklin Roosevelt`s policies to put America back on its feet, Putnam became a "conservative Democrat." [George Putnam, Long Time L.A. Newsman, Dies at 94," by Dennis McLellan, Los Angeles Times, September 13, 2008]
But, despite his party affiliation, Republicans loved Putnam, too.
Richard Nixon called him America`s "most influential" broadcaster.
Like every other immigration reform patriot, I will miss George.
God bless him!
