When Cedric Adams came on to broadcast the news, Minnesota and others in the WCCO radio area stopped and listened. His was the Minnesota voice of the news. My grandfather, a newsman himself, respected him greatly. The Betty Crocker Cookbook of that time had a recipe for a Cedric Adams Hot dish---I think it featured cabbage, onions, hamburger and tomato soup. Not even the governor was more respected throughout Minnesota in the forties.

A much-loved radio newsreader and columnist In This Corner with the Minneapolis Star for years, Cedric was something of an institution, his newscasts (especially the 10 o'clock such on WCCO 8-3-0) marking key points of the day and his column a must-read for many thousands when it came to keeping up with the latest doings.

If you don't know him, then you are not even remotely qualified to be running this dog-and-pony show.
