WKBW: Paul McCartney Is Alive And Well - Maybe, 1969 (01:02:15)
. . . Paul McCartney is alive and Well - Maybe . . .
[Description by John Bisci]
50,000-watt WKBW (1520) in Buffalo, N.Y., orginally ran this on Halloween night, 1969, when the "Paul is Dead" theory was in vogue. They re-aired it on Halloween in 1972. They did the same with War Of The Worlds, repeating it a couple of years after the original.
I remember trick-or-treating with my cousins in North Buffalo and carrying my little white GE transistor radio with me so I could hear it. (I "earned" that little radio by selling raffle tickets for St. Lawrence Church.) I was 12 and horrified when Jeff Kaye told us that our hair and nails grew after we died!
