WSB Dance Team

WSB Dance Team(1960-1961)

This posting is a revisit to a group of WSB-TV reporters and announcers.  Former vaudevillian and WSB personality Ruth Kent trained us.  We were one of the attractions for the first WSB-TV “Salute to America” parade.   We performed at the Old Municipal Auditorium next to what then was Georgia State College.  Merv Griffin came from New York to MC the show.   Merv thought we were professional dancers.  Boy, did we fool him.   Only 5 of us still are alive.  The oldest among us is Ray Moore.  The then News Director is the one with his hat on in the back row next to me.   Ray will turn 90 in about 5 1/2 months.  He’s still pretty spry.
