There is a page on Facebook called “You Know You Grew Up In Alliance, NE If…” Their members have been sharing and discussing our 70th anniversary posts, and out of this discussion came a fun story from former Alliance resident Sandy O’Brien. She was nice enough to call us from her home in Grand Island to chat about an embarrassing moment that happened on KCOW in 1963:
Our thanks to Sandy for taking the time to share her story. And this note of consolation: Anyone who has spent more than 5 minutes on live radio, professional or otherwise, has their blooper story to tell: A microphone that wasn’t supposed to be on, fumbling for the script, etc etc etc.
Thanks again to the “You Know You Grew Up In Alliance, NE If” Facebook page for leading us to this interview!
