Color Radar

(From Guestbook 35) John Hillis said:

KOTV's SpectraScan 6, which went in up at the tower in '77, was the first color radar in town. It was memorable in that it did not have a visible sweep arm, but people (or maybe it was station brass) wouldn't accept the radar without the sweep hand, so Chan Allen arranged to get an ersatz sweep built in. We must have left it up a lot, because I remember Fred, our kitten, would sit patiently through the news waiting for Woody to come on, so he could bat his paw at the radar sweep.

Ken Broo emphasizes that we might not have the Drillers much longer if attendance doesn't pick up. This was before the new Driller Park was built (first known as Sutton Stadium, I believe) Ken Broo

Bixby Green Corn And finally, some good news: there will be enough corn from Bixby to keep Tulsans grinning from ear to ear all summer (that joke wasn't Rex' fault...but it could have been!)

And now this message...
