We're looking for some WKBI Radio Memorabilia

Classy 1400AM was Elk County's first radio station, signing on back in 1950. I know between the fact many people worked there as a kid and it was the station many grew up listening to, there has to be some good memories or memorabilia out there.

 
If you have a good story/memory of WKBI-AM to share.. or maybe you have a sticker, a recording, a newspaper clipping or anything else.. I'd love to see/hear/get a copy.
 
As well, I'd love to hear any stories or see any memorabilia from WKBI 93.9 or as it was known in the 70s, as Tom Mix Raido 94.3 WTMX.
 
Get a hold of me by dropping an email to paul@houndcountry.com
 
Thanks!
