A rare Rolling Stones signed tour program, Winnipeg, Canada 7/14/66….and a friendship to boot.

I was contacted several weeks ago by someone researching early signed items.
He found my blog about early signed Stones items, posted a question hoping to get some advice.
We spoke over the next several weeks and talked about our personal passions and lives as much as the item pictured.
So not only was I able to acquire this wonderful signed program, but more importantly made a friend as well.
I’m proud to own this and the memories of his Dad that came with it.
Thanks Todd, it has found a great home.

Here’s the email he sent me regarding the piece pictured.

My father, Jim Paulson, was a prominent radio/TV broadcaster in Canada up until his passing in ’07. Right from his teens in the ’50’s he was a serious autograph collector starting with various people who were on the covers of the current TIME magazines. In ’66 he was working for Winnipeg radio station CKRC as one of their top DJ’s and that’s how this collection of Rolling Stones autographs came about. He (as he had told me in the past) was the show’s MC for the station that night, therefore was able to have access to the boys. As well as the Stones, he’d met many people throughout his career and since these are really HIS memories.

The Rolling Stones’ 1966 American Tour was a concert tour by the band. The tour commenced on June 24 and concluded on July 28, 1966. On this tour, the band supported their album Aftermath. The last gig of the tour in Honolulu, Hawaii was broadcast in the Hawaiian radio K-POI.
