Hi Scott,

After reading the WLS history on your web site what can I say but WOW!  Great job!!  Like so many of the other readers that wrote, I too grew up in the Chicago land area in the 60’s and 70’s and still live in the area.  WLS was a big part of my life.  I remember meeting Art Roberts at Camp Henery Horner (Ingleside) when I was in 4th grade.  I still have a picture someone took when I was standing with Art.  How blessed we were to have TWO 50,000 watt power house stations to listen to in the 60’s and 70’s.  My fondest memories were listening to Larry Lujack in the morning on the school bus on the way to High School (klunk letter and all).  I pull out some of my old WLS airchecks, put the headphones on, sit back and close my eyes….I’m in a different time.

Thank you for all the inside information and the memories.
