1977 CW McCall Midland CB Radio

I vaguely remember him in an interview saying he needed to come up with a stage name "right quick." He chose CW McCall because the CW was for Country & Western and McCall's was the name of the magazine on top of the pile on the coffee table at the office he was in.

Cute story. Luckily, the stage name worked out well. If a nudie mag was on top, he could've been called "CW Playboy". That might be a rapper or DJ stage name, though.

I remember the song "Convoy," but I didn't know the story of CW McCall's name. Somehow CW Kiplinger wouldn't have the same ring.
