William B. Ogden Radio School

Iím very proud and happy to sign this guest book again, and thanks to Bob for making it possible.
ROES was definitely a turning point in my life.
In 1957 I was working an air shift, making sales and doing my own production at KSVC, a small station in Richfield, Utah, and then to ROES to help this little station even more.
Studying for, and passing the tests by learning the ways and means of Bill Ogden shaped many paths for me over the years. Not only learning the information necessary for the licenses, but the logic and analysis lessons have been invaluable.
From Richfield I went to KUED Television in Salt Lake City as an engineer, plus radio announcing at the number one radio station, KNAK. I then moved into audio production, TV and motion picture production. I finally wound up with my own recording studio, where I recorded and produced radio commercials and TV soundtracks. In the meantime, I flew a traffic reporting airplane for 15 years before and after the studio work.
During all of this, I still fondly remember the times in Burbank, and the stories and happenings during that relatively short period of time.
Thanks to ROES, radio, TV and airplanes, for making my life very fun and fulfilling.

Great to read comments of Ogden grads. Brings back memories of Bill Ogden and fellow students of my class in January '69. Thanks!

Never could get a real job - still in radio.

I went to Ogden's in 1961. My first job was at KCEY. I think I was Jack Hamilton's replacement. He was stepping up to a Stockton station. I stayed about six months and moved on to KCTY in Salinas.

I graduated in 1958 from the original Ogden's radio school located on Olive Avenue in Burbank, California. at the time they were in the process of renovating the old original building that sat on that corner. There was about 20 of us crammed into a small area and I remember when it was time to take Ogden's famous "split test" I took mine sitting on the toilet as it was no other space available. I'll always remember the sign at the head of the classroom above the blackboard with the capital letters R.T.D.Q. which should for "Read The Damn Question!" More than once, he vigorously pointed to the sign when he caught one of his students asleep at the switch or with the wrong answer to a question. That was of course after he had let loose with a eraser aimed at the errant student. He was truly one-of-a-kind and a remarkable shot with his erasers.
