  • Rating: NR
In a time before spacewalks, cyberspace and television, imagination was stimulated by books and an important piece of household furniture - the radio. Radio was an important fabric in everyday life and Americans would tune into their favorite station for news and entertainment. The favorite station for many Ozarkers was KWTO - one of the most popular and successful radio stations in the country.
