Paul Bottoms and AFVN

About 2000-2001 a Dallas station was running a weekend feature show and ran a AFVN aircheck.
Paul Bottoms heard it and emailed.  It was his show.  He called in the next week and talked about AFVN.

Paul sent in an aircheck of that broadcast.

Happy Birthday AFN Europe!

Since the 4th of July 1943 AFN Europe has been making us proud.
