January 23, 2012

At our Kiwanis lunch today, we welcomed speaker Ina Davis, originally from Prattville, Alabama. Ina has led a quite interesting life having married her childhood sweetheart who was in the Coastguard, During World War II they lived in Charleston, SC. and Panama City Florida. Right after the war they settled in Chickasaw and her husband worked at International Paper Co. Ina worked as a disc jockey for WPRN-AM radio and had her own country music program As the 60's came about, the station was encouraged to  participate in diversity so they hired the janitor as part of their programming. Quite some interesting stories about the era.
