Nostalgia from the 50's


Dear Readers,

Did you love the old Burma Shave signs? We used to take a trip twice a year to go to my grandmother's house in Illinois. We were entertained by two things: Playing "white horse", and reading the Burma Shave signs. Remember what color they were? White on red! 1963 was the last year new Burma Shave signs were made. When I found this little nugget of information, I wrote a letter to all my girlfriends by Email to try to remember their favorites. I...

On November, 2, 2001, TRAVIS BROADCASTING CORPORATION had bought WGL Radio and other radio stations in that same group from KOVAS COMMUNICATIONS. It takes 60 and no later than 90 days by the FCC (FEDERAL COMMUNICATION COMMISSION), to approve it or not. But, must of the time it's approved.

WHBJ 1370AM (Became, WGL Radio), and WCWK (Became, WOWO) started broadcasting in 1924 and was then owned by the same people who owned WOWO Radio 1160AM (switched in 1954 to 1190 AM).

With their help, we made...

Dear Cousin,


Spring can come in earnest now that it has snowed on the sarvis (serviceberry) tree in bloom. It is an old country saying that it will always snow on the sarvis bloom, a prediction that was repeated every spring by Uncle Clarence Brown. Our good friend Gerald Braley inherited his position as country weather prophet until he too passed away. No one has rose up to fill their shoes, as this younger generation relies on radio and TV to predict the weather. I like the old-time...

Spring is a beautiful season, the resurrection of Jesus being the most glorious and beautiful. All creation is coming to life anew. It is time to till up our spiritual gardens and plant our prayers in the rich soil of our Savior's unconditional love and watch the miracles grow; to unite with friends and family for a cook-out and to tell stories around the camp fire. And as we see the smoke on the wind, may we know that The Creator sends us all blessings of Love and Light.

Love is "we" not I.
Love is mutual respect.
Love is "I am here for you".
Love is trust in each other.
Love is a lifetime of commitment.
Love is more than 50/50,
but never 100% me.
Love is for richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health.
Love is friendship, not just sex.
Love is consideration and kindness.
Love is life, and life is love.
From your heart to his/her heart,
Love is "us".
