Maurice "Thin Man" King


Box 7 Folder 7: "Here we are at folder 7, which is a headshot of Maurice King, otherwise known as the Thin Man, very famous jock who was at WOKS in Columbus, Georgia; WYOK in Little Rock, Arkansas; WTUG in Tuscaloosa; and at WENN in 1963 during the civil rights demonstration days through the announcer walk-out of 1976. Maurice King traveled to the new WATV with the 1976 "Walk-Out" jocks. The picture is probably from his stint at ATV. Maurice's eyes are really bloodshot. They seem to be. I don’t know. I can’t…. I wish I could have interviewed him but I didn’t. One of the guys I didn’t get an interview with. I did interview his wife, and that interview will eventually be in the Oral History collection. This picture donated from McNair Studios."
