These billboards were painted by Rick Soehn. The billboards were in the south part of Red Deer on Gaetz Avenue.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

That brings back so many memories of when I was a kid growing up on a farm North West of Red Deer. Our school class toured the old station I met Danny Teed and Ron Henry and got interested radio and TV at that point. I hope all well with old gang there ?? The Radio market has sure changed in that city from what it use to be in 1979. The old 850 had a intro song Were the spirit of Alberta I would really like hear it again. Thanks the photos
