“I’m Jim Collins. I had the task of replacing ‘The Tree’ at WXLE. I was there 72-73 when Dave White was station manager.

I brought country western music to Canton Island!

I don’t know how they did it, but American Airlines Flight 1 would call down requests for us to play as they flew over on their flights between Pago Pago and Hawaii.

I just found your site. Thank you!”
