On Wednesday, March 19, 2003, four of the WVLT, Cruisin' 92.1 staff lunched at the Broadcast Pioneers meeting at the Bala Golf Club in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia. The organization is made up of about 300 area broadcasters, including WVLT personnel. While there, the Cruisin' 92.1 guys chatted with W. Carter & Patricia Merbreier.
The Merbreiers are better known to the general public as Captain and Mrs. Noah. For over a quarter of a century, they hosted a national television show called "Captain Noah's Magical Ark." It was one of the most beloved children's shows in Philadelphia TV history.
This is one of the things Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT does. We bring back memories whether it's music or thoughts of kids show hosts. One of the few hosts more popular than Captain & Mrs. Noah is former Channel 6 TV personality Sally Starr. Sally was heard Sundays from 12 noon to 3 pm on Cruisin' 92.1, WVLT for years.
By the way, Dave Michaels' dad, well known New Jersey former air personality Pat Delsi is Chairman of the Board of the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia.
