  • For many years I tried to find out what happened to Ron Beadle the drummer; also his first wife Heather(and their daughter) Are they still among the living? If not I would be deeply saddened. Ron and I were in the NORAD Band together. He was a very fine drummer as we selected him to join our semi-official combo, The NORAD Nomads (later simply “The NOMADS”. My instrument was the Sanovox organ & Hammond Organ We were a very successful performing group.I have a few photos of Ron while in our group as well as one good recording we made on our own.Other NORAD band/Nomad members were: Ed Kiefer,Fender Bass, Sam Bader, Trombone, Ed Barlow, Reeds and our featured civilian vocalist, Becky Love.
    I don’t know about Becky but the others are now deceased. I would love to know what happened to Ron Beadle and his family.
