I'm quite sure that George Jaspert was the owner of WCCM, 800 AM, ("Radio
8") in Lawrence during the mid to late 60's, before it was sold to Curt Gowdy.  
I thought his name was Jasper, without the final "t."  During that time
WCCM's FM outlet, 93.7 FM, was WGHJ-FM (for Jaspert's initials).  Later, of
course, it became WCGY (Curt GowdY radio).
Take care--
