This is Marilyn Engstrom. I live in Laramie, Wyoming, and I remember in the fall or in the winter of 1966-67, in that era. WPR joined with the Wyoming high school speech association and they had a radio broadcast as part of the speech team here on campus and the students that competed. We were given a piece of teletype. They had to quickly edit that news and present that along with a 5 minute commentary or editorial. It was a great fun, and I remember climbing up to the 4th floor of the Wyoming Union and getting to see the facilities and participate in that contest. It was a great time, and I've been a big fan of Wyoming Public Radio ever since. I love it.
