Typed Letter signed: "John C. Emmel", "Wilbur J. Jerman", 1 page, 8½x11. Portland, Oregon, 1949 August 5. Letter of agreement on letterhead of KWJJ Radio, extending the music contract of John Emmel at the Portland station for another full year. If Jerman and his partner, Mr. Egan, were to sell the station within that time, the contract could be voided with 90 days' notice. WILBUR J. JERMAN (1901-2004), a self-taught radio technician, entered radio broadcasting in 1922, designing and assembling Portland station KQY and becoming its chief engineer. In 1925, he founded his own station, originally operated from his home. This station received its permanent call letters, KWJJ (Jerman's initials) in 1926. That same year, Jerman began experimenting with television, and he added KWJJ-FM in 1946. Jerman retired in 1952, and would have another half century to enjoy retirement. JOHN C. EMMEL was an organist and orchestra leader. He issued several recordings on the RCA label in the early 1950s, including "Oh Promise Me," "Because", Serenade", "Evening Star" and "Tales from the Vienna Woods". From the collection of George Sanders, who would become a radio/TV host and program manager at KWJJ. Lightly toned. Multiple mailing folds. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
