Who was "Willie Whistle" ?

     Reliable sources (who will stay nameless) told me that it was a man
named Dick Beach.  He has since retired and enjoying the sun in F-L-A.
Word has it that he, in addition to his "Willie" duties, had a high
position at WSBK for many years.  BTW: Willie Whistle debuted on the
days of WIHS-TV (now WSBK) in 1966.  I drew a picture of Willie at age
6 and was excited to see it on the air !! What memories.
