Jack Lemme Passed Away


Tuesday, February 14
, 2017:  

Long time friend and client John "Jack" Lemme of Little Falls, MN, died peacefully at the age of 91. 

Burial in the Minnesota State Veteran Cemetery near Little Falls. 

Mark's comments:   It was back in the early 1970s when I first visited KLTF Radio in Little Falls.  Jack, the station owner and outgoing guy, was happy to meet anyone walking through the door....especially someone involved in broadcasting.  After mentioning I was an engineer, he took me to the transmitter site where he explained they had some difficulty with their Collins 5 KW AM transmitter.  I said, "Here's your problem," and promptly fixed it.  That cemented our relationship, which went on long after he sold the station.  He was probably my first broadcast engineering client while I was still working full time at KVBR Radio in Brainerd.  

The stories go on and on.  Stop in again sometime.  I'll leave the soldering iron on for you.
