Hi Don - Wasn't that Store where you and Roy Jorgenson got your boy scout clothing (and entertainment start) known as Frank Martin and Sons? They may have suceeded the store you mentioned. Keep up your great stories of the past. Many of us now "old timers", enjoy your memories -- some of which bring back some of our own -- of a community we all love.

The RBJ "Bandstand" Show still stands out as one of the greatest locally originated radio programs.

It was Sister Daniel Marie, then administrator of what was Saint Joseph's Hospital, who accomodated the live broadcast from RBJ's room.
