Last week, WHOW celebrated 70 years on the air and one of our guests that day was Ozzie Pearl,
who hosted a live square dance program for 25 years on WHOW.
Pearl indicates it was a 30 minute show and he never missed a single one in 25 years.
Pearl recalls a trip he made with a bunch of their square dancers to Nashville. He explains got to meet Roy Acuff and Hank Snow and had them record a station break, which was later accidentally deleted.
Pearl was among about a dozen former WHOW staff members and community members to be a part of the 70th anniversary show at the Big Red Barn last Saturday.
