Marine Corps 1 '». (Inlernalioiuil Suunrt- pliolo) Minneapolis (UP)—Randy Merriman looks ikie a Hollywood hero, pours out trap's like crax.y, grimaces like an outraged chimpanzee, and thinks servicemen tux wonderful. This remarkable salad of talenls frets a. workout six nights a week over KSTP, Twin Cities radio sta- i tion, in a program called "Over seas Special." which, with a c i-, of two vocalists in addition to Merriman, provides Xorthwos! servicemen all over tbe world w th home-made entertainment and remarkable variety of persona services. This wide arena for tho show if possible by KSTP's directional beam, which sonclo tbe broadcast due westward all around the world. Though it may sound implausible that's tbe way i: works. -Merrimun has letters from a suilor on a battleship stationed off Uic British Isles. Tbe only way the program could have reached the frob was across western United States, the Pacific, Siberia; northern Europe and England, In a fashion only a radio cn- Kineer could explain, the program is heard everywhere ar.d it's not shortwave. Letters come from Alaska, the Central Pacific, Australia and other scattered points. Merriman uniquely projects- his personality across the hundreds uf miles and tbe servicemen respond. Submarine Gets NIIWK A submarine commander in the Pacific wrote that when the un- derseas crn.fl. surfaced tbe boys would pick up KSTP's news broadcasts which arc part of tho throe- hour "Overseas Special" show. The program is the only live contact for hundreds of servicemen and Randy does the best he- can with ,1 prodigiously fertile in-, tellijjcnce to make it lively. When some of the servicemen listeners visit the Twin Cities, Randy puts them on the air. To the RAJT base naa.r Winnipeg", Canada, come British servicemen from all parts of the Empire. After Randy had them on his fih o \v during furloughs he received calls from local listeners, offei in^r to show tbe boys a i.'-ooct time. These people, Merriman says, often provided n. full week of entertainment for their guests. Families of such servicemen lune in from New Zealand and Australia and often hear the voice of ri l&np-abscnt son. Randy treasures their letters of appreciation. Morrimnn snatches all travel! I talent for his broadcast. He's h Cab Galloway and his orchost wbo camu up and put on a • minute, show. Bonita Granvil H. B. Warner, Murjjo, Van, Monroe and others have done Hit stuff for Merriman's world-wit audience. TSehcursrtl Is Fun Watching the "rehearsal" is much fun as tbe shpw Kandy find his two vocalists, Lyn Montgomery, a singer whose tn ents have increased notably iind Mcrrimnn'.s off-the-cuff lutelnf,' and Ray StchH, a. former Scabc will riddle around with nucsc tions, do a "bum - to - dum - dun solo, duo or trio, R.-isticulate rapic ly and the show is all set. Wha keeps it moving is Merriman versatility, covering evcrythin from hillbilly dialogue ,'o flip Rufr for a. studio audience and Rand wanders down with a portable m crophonc, asking any zany cjucs tion tliiit occurs to him.
