Gene Price - 1974


Gene and Willard are back with your country favorites.  Christmas is coming and Gene wrote a really great book about the magic of Christmas for the kids or the whole family.  Take a look.



Hawaii Calls - 1961


There was one state that did a real outreach and was a perfect match for AFRTS.  Hawaii tourism and businesses funded "Hawaii Calls" from the 1930s until well into the 1970s.  Much of that time it was heard on AFRTS.  Let's put the winter away for a while and listen to Hawaii Calls.
