Friday, June 26, 1942


Dear Diary,

Today was the twentieth anniversary of WFAA, so there was a big article about it in the morning paper. It went back through the years with radio, naming the big names and songs through the years. It stated that “1942 has been a year of Bob Hope and Deep in the Heart of Texas.” There was a big radio program tonight celebrating the anniversary. Little Orvie Anderson wrote the script and did a dramatic sketch about Corregidor. I missed it on account of my dancing lesson, (darn it!) but Betty Lou and I went up to the studios just as the crowd was leaving, and everyone was saying it was the best show WFAA had ever done, and that Orvie really “strutted his stuff” and did some fine acting in the sketch.
