"Radio Superior" tonight goes back to Nov. 1, 1948, when President Harry Truman upset Gov. Thomas Dewey, defying pollsters and punsters of the day.

Hosted by Jack McKenna and Lew Martin, the program features Earl Vesterby of Superior, who put a large antenna on his roof and was one of the first in the city to get television reception. Vesterby was a radio repairman who was able to pull in programs from KSTP-TV in St. Paul. "Radio Superior" is a re-creation of news, advertising and music of that time. It airs three episodes every Friday at 5:30 on KUWS, 91.3 FM. "Radio Superior" is locally produced at Wisconsin Public Radio station KUWS.
