These men were awaiting trial when Tatrow’s case was tried. Three years after the murders, Connie Tatrow was indicted and subsequently convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamines.The defense called the other defendants to the stand but each one refused to testify on Fifth Amendment grounds. Another disturbing coincidence to the Bobo case is that in James Tatrow’s initial police interviews, he claimed that the murder victims (insert) had been picked up from the Dry Creek area by someone in a black Camaro.By the early 1970s, however, listeners were slowly discovering the FM band and migrated to it for its static-free, stereophonic broadcasts; by 1978, FM overtook AM as the most popular band.Attempts to revitalize AM have netted little; AM Stereo was proposed in 1958 and introduced in 1982 to big fanfare; many car manufacturers began to integrate AM Stereo into their radio units, and KRQX-570 became the first local AM Stereo station in 1983.However, five different companies were pushing their systems to become the broadcasting standard.This included Kahn Communications (who was at the forefront of AM Stereo development in 1958,) Harris, Motorola, Magnavox and Belar Electronics.Powerhouse WBAP was awarded a clear channel position on the dial; it is one of only a small handful of stations in the nation that's allowed to blast its signal to a reported 42 states!
EBS replaced CONELRAD in 1963, and EAS replaced EBS in 1997.The invention of the transistor, and subsequently the development of lightweight, portable radios, along with the inclusion of radios in cars, helped the reinvented band find a new audience with people on the go.Mc Lendon and Todd Storz's simultaneous discovery of the "Top 40" in the 1950s gave radio a special popularity among the younger generation, and his KLIF, along with KBOX and KFJZ, developed formats to capitalize on current music, especially rock and roll.) (Felony Murder, Especially Aggravated Appellant ) Kidnapping) Phillip Lane Lawrence, James Talbert Hendrixson, Jr., Michael Redmon, Jeffrey Sanders and Kenny Mason were indicted for two counts of premeditated murder, two counts of felony murder, and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.
Jimmy Anthony Dan was indicted for kidnapping only, and Bruce Edward Rochefort was indicted for kidnapping and aggravated assault.
This would allow new investors to start new stations from scratch (as the pool of available frequencies was quickly drying up) and would permit existing restricted-signal stations to move into an uncrowded part of the band and beef up their coverage area.
