For years, one of Glendale’s most recognizable landmarks was radio station KIEV’s set of steel towers behind the Hotel Glendale, at the corner of Glendale Boulevard and Broadway. KIEV began broadcasting in 1931, during the Depression years, on 250 watts of power. The station was established in 1929 by Reed Callister and David Cannon, said Ron Beaton, whose family owned the station from 1961 to 1998. It was Callister, a lawyer from Utah, who purchased the towers from KNX in Hollywood.

Judy Seckler GLENDALE -- If you've been missing 86-year-old radio personality George Putnam, the KIEV-AM (870) host has had elective surgery and is off for a few weeks. Putnam entered Pomona Valley Hospital on Wednesday to have the two top vertebrae in his neck fused. The surgery was done to ease a college football injury he's had since he was 20. Putnam aggravated the injury riding Brahma bulls at a rodeo. But the final straw occurred recently when he tripped over his dog, Wally George, and activated his injury.

Chuck Benedict Officially, today begins the new millennium. Gone are 20th century needs for blacksmiths, Christmas tree candles, Model A Fords, ice boxes, Chic Sales and such spine-tingling words and phrases as: "You do the spark. I'll crank." "Number, please?" "...for the duration." Outmoded by modern technology and improved concepts were ice boxes, hat racks, bloomers, bread trucks, jitterbugging, silent movies, fire horses, inkwells, magazine deliveries and telegrams.

Shame on the Glendale News-Press for its "Running for Congress isn't pretty" editorial May 18. I don't know what newspaper your editorial staff has been reading, but your editorial suggesting that the two candidates running for Congress in the 27th do not want to debate reflects a shameful lack of information on your part and one that wouldn't exist if you read your own newspaper. A League of Women Voters Forum in Burbank provided the local citizens with an excellent opportunity to review the positions of the candidates on issues.

Marshall Hall writes: “It was around 1939 and Glenoaks Grammar School was out for the summer. As a skinny 8-year-old interested in building radios from old parts donated to me by two radio repair shops in Glendale, I rode my bicycle down the canyon to see if they had any parts for me. This time I decided to stop at the Hotel Glendale, home of radio station KIEV. I ventured into the lower parking lot behind the hotel where I found an open window and I could see and hear the disc jockeys playing records.
