Visitors to the Station: On Monday, November 3, 1969" Eddie Dunbar, song
writer of the current hit "Mind, Body and Soul" recorded by the Flaming
Embers; Eddie Holland, song writer and former producer of the Supremes'
records,; and on November 4, Janis Pierce, "Miss Torchy" representing the

Mark Allen will be at the Auto Show this year,
appearing in the Chevrolet truck and camper exhibit. Part of his activity
will involve conversation with or about rare birds -- really! The tie-in is
that these birds come from various sections of the country where these
campers could be put to good use. No doubt this will create plenty of
