Sunday Funnies

July 1st, 2012 by jomo

This morning when I glanced at the Sunday Comics section of the American-Statesman, I remembered “Uncle” Roy’s Sunday morning radio show on KTSM in El Paso in the 1940s and 50s. He read the comic strip captions while his listening audience followed along at home, looking at the pictures. I remember that he had a wide range of voice characterizations. Listening to Uncle Roy’s show on Sunday was as much a part of my routine as going to church.

As I began to write this…note? little memory bit? whatever…I used the web to run a search to see if there was something out there about Uncle Roy, and I found this in memoriam piece – which made my fond memories fonder. He really was as nice a guy as he sounded on the radio.
