Joe Rumore

July 17, 1920-December 20, 1993

I'd forgotten all about Joe Rumor until I saw some photos of him among Stephen Snead's  facebook photos.  Joe was with WVOK that broadcast 50,000 watts out of Birmingham, Ala.  He started with WVOK in 1948 and remained on air for over forty years.  Joe Rumore quickly became a local radio icon.  I might go so far to say that he was radio in Alabama.  Through out most of Alabama, Joe Rumor was a house hold name.

Is this where we insert the Yellow Label Syrup commercial?
