remember Dick Gilbert
vividly describing the way he followed the 1974 tornado through Louisville by
the flashes of exploding transformers as they blew up in the tornado's path.
Dick gave a human voice to Louisville's greatest natural disaster since the
1937 flood, when WHAS Radio established it's prominency in news coverage. Dick
not only carried out but enhanced the station's proud tradition."
Barry Bingham, Jr. (former Publisher and Editor of
the Courier-Journal and Louisville Times.)
Dick Gilbert's life reads like a chapter out of "Indiana Jones"-adventurous,
funny and brave. Many of us knew Dick as the intrepid chopper pilot (hero of
1974's tornado) will be surprised to learn of Gilbert's other careers. It's all
there in 'Just My Luck', and what a terrific read it is!"Milton Metz
84 WHAS Radio Personality.
Gilbert was the best at what he did, and it was my privilege to share the WHAS
microphone with him during some of his finest hours. This book will help us
remember a man who should never be forgotten." Byron Crawford,"
Courier-Journal Columnist, and former WHAS Radio anchorman and reporter.
