When WNPV signed on in 1960, it was only allowed to broadcast from sunrise to sunset. This rule was in place to protect the coverage areas of existing out of town radio stations in the 1440 range. Since WNPV had to sign off every evening at sunset they were unable to cover local high school football games live.
The “Football Flashbacks” program was created in order to provide some high school football coverage. On Saturday mornings at 9am, a panel, including Bob Fretz, Charlie Myers, Edgar Williams and Don Beideman would discuss the happenings on the grid iron the night before.
This early advertisement was printed in the North Penn Reporter in 1960.
In 1988, Hagery Tours of Franconia sponsored a contest where WNPV listeners could enter to win a trip to Disney World in Orlando. The contest was promoted on the AM Edition program where additional prizes could be won. This was the official entry form printed in the Perkasie News-Herald.
A new daily feature was about to launch on WNPV Radio. “The Tooth Fairy” was a short form comedy program produced by Dick Orkin who also produced the “Chickenman” series. The following advertisement published in the Perkasie News-Herald promotes the start date of April 15th, 1974.
