Delta Fair Parade

Charles Jolliff shares his flickr set of the 2006 Delta Fair Parade. Brings back lots of memories. My first radio interview (1972) was with Bill Walsh and Jack McDaniel, the Kennett businessmen who have been organizing the parade for about 50 years. My end of the interview was so bad, I spliced (magnetic tape, grease pencil, splicing block) in new questions. Took hours.

For years, Jeff Wheeler, Tom Colvin and I broadcast the parade live (You had to be there).

Back in the fifties, my father rode in the the parade in a wheelbarrow, as part of a radio station promotion. God bless America!
