|December 1970 KALEIDOSCOPE Nashville Tennessee
|I was a writer for the Kaleidoscope Newspaper in the early
1970's, covering music and concert events. Unfortunately, most
of my issues of the Kaleidoscope were lost over the years.
The Kaleidoscope was a Junior Achievement, Nashville
music newspaper that was distributed to high schools
throughout Nashville, and passed out free to students.
In high school, I also worked as a stringer reporter for the
popular radio station 1510 WLAC-AM.
