In 1979, to celebrate KCOW’s 30th anniversary, interviews were conducted with several figures from the station’s past. One of these past employees, Skip Stephenson, had made it big by ’79 as one of the hosts of NBC’s “Real People”, an early reality show that featured human interest stories.
The interviewer asked Skip to share a memory of Alliance, and Skip remembered a very familiar tale to anyone who grew up in Alliance:
We will be airing the full 9-minute interview with Skip Stephenson, who passed away in 1992, Monday morning January 21 on KCOW as part of our first in a monthly series of “flashback days”. The January Flashback Day is sponsored by G and L Auto Detailing in Alliance.
