special to the Star
March 28, 2003
The Hartley Peavey Story will continue on "Remember When" on Sunday. The historical program will air from 1 p.m.-3 p.m., on WZKR, 101.3 FM.
The show is produced and hosted by veteran radio personality Carl Fitzgerald. The first part of the Peavey profile aired last month.
Peavey said he's been doing business with that bank ever since.
Peavey also told the radio audience that a local wholesale hardware company refused to sell him glue, screws, bolts, etc., to use in building his amps and speakers. He had to go to Jackson to buy these products.
Regardless of the obstacles and pitfalls, Hartley Peavey thrived and survived. He has become world-renowned in the manufacturing of electronic and sound equipment, Fitzgerald said.
His wisdom and keen wit are among the reasons cited for his company's growth, from the basement of his late father's home on 16th Avenue, to huge plants in many areas of Mississippi and other countries of the world.
The traditional program will also feature some memorable music from the past, and will touch on the Jimmie Rodgers legacy and the upcoming festival celebration. The "Remember When" historical radio show and the theme song, (sung the late Marty Collins) is a copyrighted feature of Carl Fitzgerald. The show Sunday is the 154th chapter of "Remember When."
