In our archives, we have a clip from WPEN Radio dating from Sunday, October 17, 1965. WPEN Newsman Art Curley (also a member of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia) is heard in this excerpt from the 3 pm newscast. Art later went to WILM in Wilmington, WSSR Radio in Georgetown, DE and WGMD in Rehoboth Beach, DE.
Here's an unidentified WPEN newscaster telling the Delaware Valley about the current status of a United States Gemini spacecraft.
Next we hear WPEN's News Director Jules Rind from Saturday, October 16, 1965. While the cut is short, it is all we had.
