Dear Red:


Congratulations on 50 years of broadcasting. I had the honor to be able to sit down and talk with you during the first Northwest Elvis festival in Penticton. We chatted at the Penticton Inn cafe while you waited for Tom Shields. It was nice to learn things about the business back then and now. I want to wish you all the best.
