  1. My brother Bob Cope did the news there for several years in early 70’s, and remember being introduced and watched Boots at the station. Always listened to WHOT.

    Boots actually taught broadcasting classes at YSU, He helped many people get started in the broadcasting business. He introduced me to a guy that led to me getting a job at IBM out of college.
    And it was really – “Yes indeedy doody daddy! Have yourself a HAPPY!” Thanks for the memories.

    I forgot about the “Yes indeedy doody daddy”. Boots was just a guy you loved to listen to and be around with.
