Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins the Radio Host
Norman Collins was a true social chameleon. Late at night, long after he'd shut down the tattoo shop for the evening, Jerry would head over to the Watamula Broadcast Tower and host a radio talk show called "Old Ironsides." On the show, Jerry would talk about everything, from his thoughts on women to politics.
Here's a nice pull we found from a speech he gave on Veteran's Day…broadcast back in the day via KTRG Honolulu!
"This is Veterans Day, but this is also a day when we as Americans should take a good look into the mirror of our consciousness. Take a good look at what you see. We, as a nation, are riding on the heavily burdened backs of our fighting men. They are not complaining. I am!"
