In the process Lady Skywriter became enamored of Howie Wing, and set out to find out more about him. I discovered a wonderful resource for old radio shows, The Metropolitan Washington Old-Timer Radio Club. I requested information about Howie Wing, and was put in touch with Jack French, editor of Radio Recall, the organization's newsletter. He, in turn, referred me to Kathy Hammel, their Howie Wing expert. Kathy responded immediately and began educating me on Howie Wing.
