In our directed study looking through some of the newspaper articles and pictures found things that intrigued me. For example, the Little Tiger Thompson article is the one I remember the most. He was 8- years-old and the youngest disc jockey.He worked at WEDR and had his own radio show, making 10 dollars a week, I believe. In the article it talks about how at the age of three he was spinning records, and he was able to work the controls and put together his own program. Little Tiger's show was apparently very popular with children and adults as he received countless letters every week. I find Tiger Thompson impressive as at very young age, he was able to speak and articulate in a way that reached a broad audience.
