Focus On The Newsmakers 9/28/1969

"50,000 watts over Arkansas", this week is headed up by Bill Edwards. 

The commercial after the intro is about Hurricane Camille (I remember that one- I was a little boy in Semmes, AL when that one came through- it was a terrible storm) and donations to the Red Cross to help us Gulf Coast residents to get back on our feet.  Heck, we country folk never knew donations were being taken for us- we just did what it took to clear everything out and get on with our lives....

The opening interview is with Arkansas' Industrial Development's Harry McLemore, regarding a new Allis-Chalmers plant in Arkansas.  More good historical news & interview follows.

Does anyone else who was in the path of Hurricane Camille remember those days?

Hey, Greg...thank you!
