A Forgotten Art – Letter Writing

TK Smith

From time to time, MB Wilson, founder of Embie Concepts, sends me the most interesting items from the past.  Last week, I received this letter written by Bob McKeehan, radio station KCNA disk jockey, in Tucson, AZ.  It was written to Slick Norris, who according to Billboard Nov. 12, 1955, was singer Jimmy Newmans manager.

Dated, March 25, 1955, there’s not an address number to be found on either the “to” or “from” address; simpler times indeed.

It kind of makes me wonder whether the daily social media updates and instant world news is better, or an annual letter and a weekly newspaper might have been the best, less detracting way to go? Thanks MB!
