There have been brushes with fame and conversations with stars. There are the interviews with the Prime Minister and world-famous athletes. You've heard them all and we've done it all on CHAB over the course of 95 years.
But, you know, as we came together this fall to share memories of CHAB's history, I found that you and I remember the same things. Nobody's talking about the famous people. We're all talking about the LOCAL people who were featured on the radio from the early days of live, musical and theatrical performances to guesting on the old Mail Bag program. Local people remember those occasions.
I'll never forget interviewing a man by the name of Miles Huntley, shortly after he turned 105 years old. He told me the secret was lots of fresh air, regular exercise and a balanced diet.
I'll never forget Mac "Lucky" Wilson telling me about his battles on the ground, overseas, during World War II.
Those were special conversations with local people sharing their stories on the local radio station. Happy 95th birthday, CHAB.
