Episode thirty-nine! Just had to say it, hope you don’t mind. We speak with Whit Patten, a man who grew up on a farm in the country (he had to board in town to attend high school) but went on to travel the world doing top secret work for the US in the cold war. Specifically, monitoring Soviet nuclear testing in the Arctic and Pacific. And then there’s the U-2 Flights and NASA, such a guy! There’s more: we have a couple of old friends stop by, you know the ones I’m talking about, they come by every now and then and do funny things. I can’t recall their names just now, however. You’ll have to listen to find out who! And we have a quiz and some news and just about everything you’d ever want in a radio variety show, including crisp, clean, fresh breath!
