Xll NO. 46 NEWS DF KFWO - The other..daYMrs. -Miles Overhoit made an extremely good suggestion for a" name for Major Mott's far-reaching broadcasting Station. She proposed "The Silver Shower Station," and it fills the bill most adequately, in view of the fact the Major sent out rather more than 800 little bags of silver ore, ~m the Wrigley mines, from Mon, s" mail to that of Saturday. B~ arising with the sun on the Sabbath, and working fast, at noon he had his desk clear, and everything "set" for the Monday rush o' mail. Jrhe man- ner in which the gift of ore has taken in theminds of the listeners to KFWO is nothing short of the marvelous. Mrs Vaughn, Miss Hewitt and the Major are bravely np their end of the Mesdames Woodson, and Martin rushed in having made and strm little ore-shipping bag more power to these k: their deeply app ble assistance ! Last Friday night was a conspicu- ous success at KFWO. All the pro- grams are good, but that of Friday night was especially so. With the One-and-Only "Scotty" Brown in charge of the microfone, the sixth of the Overseas Nights got away to a good start when the St. Catherine Orchestra wentoff the air at 7:45. Secretary P. West, of The Tuna Club, gave a very succinct and comprehen- sive talk on that famous institution-- exceedingly well done, and Mr. West has a peculiarly good voice for broad- cast. Mr. Bock, who is the official weigher of fish for the Club, told, briefly and well, of that part of the sport. Skipper Sam Goulding, one of our most able boatmen, related some incidents in angling for big tuna and swbrdfish5 Miss Fox, with Miss Put- nam at the Richardson Grand, was so generous as to sing some more of her very charming songs. A delightful team: the Misses Fox and Putnam, and they will be heard over KFWO each Friday night. Mr. A. E. Mills told a splendid fishin' yarn, cleverly using his voice in such a manner as to cause listeners to believe that three men were before the microfone. Maj- Mott says that he has a decided or 'find'" in Messrs. Algier and Stevens, who are wicked wielders of the saxo- phone! And these two good friends of KFWO will also be "regulars" on Friday nights.
