I can tell I'm getting older each year because I look forward to the spring and summer more and more. As a matter of fact, your editor was persuaded to try "Blooper Softball" this year for the first time (and perhaps the last).....what an experience! Speaking of age, this is an appropriate time to acknowledge "Tex" Perham's hobby of 60 years ago that began as WJAM, merged with KWCR, and wound up as WMT.

Those who built the tradition and legacy this station enjoys are gone from the airwaves, but their concern for service and quality is not forgotten... and our pledge to you, our listeners, is to maintain the interest and improve every way we can to better serve you. that's how we have kept your trust and how we intend to keep it.

All of us who occupy the 600 spot on your dial thank you for making 60 years possible, and from one who, many years ago, discovered that distant station at 600 on that dial in Cedar Rapids, there isn't a better place to be.
