Since 1977 I know of few who have written or been interviewed about the Williamson flood. In particular, there has been little information about what the only radio station in town, WBTH-AM, did during the flood. Afterwards we at WBTH were both praised and vilified for our efforts, by many of the same people at the same time. It would be well after the event before I would discover why. Then there are the stories I know you haven't heard, for I haven't told them. Some may even raise an eyebrow or two. This is a very personal story, one I feel compelled to write though I have written only radio commercials, 'til now.

We were a handful of people trying to do the right thing.......
