In the early nineties, the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia started a project which is now known as "The Oral History Project." Basically, Marguerite Farley (who was President of our organization in 1982 and 1983) sat down with an audio cassette recorder with some of our members who were, indeed, PIONEERS IN BROADCASTING. It was sort of a forerunner of our current series known by that name.

On December 26, 1991 in Bala Cynwyd, Pa, Marguerite sat down to talk with Joe Grady and Ed Hurst of the 950 Club. In 1990, they were honored by the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia as "Persons of the Year." Six years later, our organization inducted this dynamic duo into our Hall of Fame. This interview was recorded at WPEN Radio. We have uploaded the entire interview, unedited, exactly as recorded on that date.
