Go back in time 50 Years to April 1968
When former Member Byron Johnson
appeared as a guest
on KATN’s Talk Show
Just a few days after the death of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Bob was the host of “Coffee Time” from 1964-1972
We’ll go back in time to April 1968 right after the tragic death of
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. At that time, there were race riots
taking place & fires burning in cities all across the United States.
Former Idaho Supreme Court Justice Byron was a 30-year-old
Boise Attorney when this show was recorded, and was one of a
few Democrats willing to even appear on the Bob Salter Show!
That being said, Bob Salter & Byron Johnson both illustrate how
opposing views could have an intelligent dialogue, and could also
agree, and even “agree to disagree” without being disagreeable!
You’ll hear actual call from all over the Treasure Valley and will
be able to see how just much the political landscape has changed,
sometimes for the better in Boise. But, you’ll also see also see how
some things have not changed…or have gotten worse. This show
also gives us a hint of what is to come in 1968 - and 50 years later.
Hear the “roots” of Conservative Talk Radio in Boise!
Please RSVP for this lunch by 2pm Thursday April 26th
No charge to attend the meeting!
You may purchase lunch off a special menu from Smoky Mountain
