General Meeting Recording for SLHNA Website – April 2022
Coming Soon: An Interview with Johnny Rabbitt
Ron Elz (better known as Johnny Rabbitt) has lived in St. Louis Hills for over forty years. Several
years ago, STL Magazine wrote a feature article on him. The first sentence stated that “No one
– no one – can match Ron Elz’s track record in St. Louis radio.”
The article explained that before he introduced the Beatles at the Cow Palace in San Francisco
in 1964, he befriended a young twenty-year old from England named George Harrison who
came to St. Louis to visit his sister in Benton, Illinois.
In light of Johnny Rabbitt’s nearly seventy years in broadcasting, the St. Louis Hills
Neighborhood Association thought that our residents would love to hear his story.
The video interview will be done early next year and will then be posted to the SLHNA website.
