Wernher Von Braun
 

One of the many famous people I interviewed on radio was rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun. Mr. Von Braun was one of Hitler's top scientists during the Nazi Third Reich, and he wisely surrendered to the American forces at the end of the war in 1945 to avoid being captured by the Russians who were advancing rapidly from the East to capture the city of Berlin. Other rocket scientists weren't so lucky and were taken by the Russians to further their own rocket program. And thus began the Race to Space between the Russians and America. The Russians did beat the U.S. in getting a satellite into orbit, and then a living creature, a dog, but ultimately the Americans caught up and beat the Russians to the moon.

 

I also interviewed Senator Robert Kennedy during his campaign swing through our town, shortly before he was assassinated. 

 

I enjoyed meeting and asking the Beatles some questions at their press only news conference, just prior to going onstage at the State Fair.

 

My first job in radio was interviewing people of interest, live, on the air from my remote broadcast vehicle, named Red Rover.

This woman was a hostess on the Trailways bus lines new 1st class service, debuting that year.
