Continuing Beaver Dam History Series Will Feature Old WBEV Broadcasts

(Beaver Dam) The public is invited to attend a presentation tonight Tuesday that will provide an in-depth look at the history of Beaver Dam’s newspapers and radio stations. Local historian Roger Noll says he will also discuss the musical traditions of the city, where they performed, local theater troupes, among other things. Noll says in this continuing history series of Beaver Dam, he will display various pictures, videos as well as some soundbites from old WBEV broadcasts. They include a tape of Fred McMurray and June Haver being interviewed in 1959, audio from Western Rodeo Days from the early 1960’s, a clip of Noll playing in a football game in 1971 and a short soundbite of the Beaver Dam football team in the 1979 championship game. Noll says a video showing the construction of St. Patrick’s school will begin at 6pm in the basement of the Beaver Dam Library. The history presentation will get underway at 6:30pm.
