Live Radio

Our Seward Kiwanis Kitones sang this afternoon on Radio Station KAWL at York, Nebraska. This was a special event and they had several groups in for half-hour slots. Our's was from 2:00 to 2:30. This had some special meaning for me since KGBZ in York was a favorite station back in the early 1930's when we got our first Majestic radio. It was necessary to “tune-in” all 3 dials on the radio to get good reception and the separate “curved neck” speaker sat on top of the radio. Our aerial was a wire strung from a 2x4 attached to the outhouse, to the chimney of our house. Our favorite entertainers were: “Henry and Jerome” who played guitars and sang. When my sister and I learned to play guitars when we were 12 & 13 years old, we talked about wanting to play and sing on the radio like Henry & Jerome. We never had the opportunity until today when I got to sing with the Kitones and my sister's son sang with the group that followed us.
