Happy New Year, Rex. And thanks for another 12 months of Bop, Slop and Schlock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm WR:

Thank you for giving Walt Boatner credit for that air check. A nice slice from those times. Also digging the early Chill Wills photo, I need to watch a movie featuring the young Chill Wills to balance my image of him as a post 50s guy.
Avatar 2:37pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

The Boss Groover approves of this show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

Chill Wills was flown in to be the celebrity ribbon cutter for the grand opening of the new Ramada Inn in downtown Topeka, KS. It was a while back...over 50 years ago.
Avatar 2:40pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Chuck Gregg is in fact unbelievable.
