This is a picture of a radio schedule from WMBI back in 1977. To the right is my grandpa, Craig Massey. He was a pastor of a church in Des Plaines, Illinois for a long time, and then started working with Moody doing Family Living Conferences. He and my grandma traveled all over the U.S. doing these conferences.
But, if you look at the left-hand side of the brochure, you’ll see my father-in-law. He was the station manager of WMBI back in the 70’s.
I would have been four at the time, and would meet my future Mr MIP 15 years later. The point is, trust me, I had my parents’ okay on this boyfriend when I brought him home and Mom figured out she used to work at WMBI writing continuity when Jim was there and knew the Wick family. (And, really, the boyfriend before Mr MIP left a chewed up piece of gum on the guestroom wall… something that gave Mr MIP a definite head start when he tried to win them over!)
