Old Walla Walla Radio Remembered 25--The Walla Walla Men's Garden Club

The Walla Walla Men's Garden Club radio program ran on KTEL for decades.  Although my grandfather, Ed Granek, is not pictured above, he was often on the panel, another reason I may have developed a love for radio.  When my grandfather moved overseas in the mid 1960s, he would join the panel whenever he was in town.  Upon moving back to Walla Walla, he again would be on the radio with the Garden Club.
The Men's Garden Club Show would air Tuesday mornings from Spring to Fall and be sponsored by Long's Garden and Pet.  Listeners would call in questions, which radio personnel would write down and hand to the panel.  They would use their gardening expertise to answer the questions.
Thank you to the Bygone Walla Walla blog for this picture.
