A bunch of things happened in 1969. Perhaps the most momentous, July 20, when humans stepped onto another place in the universe for the first time.
I was working for WMPT radio in South Williamsport, PA, that Sunday afternoon. We switched over to ABC News feed and I watched the coverage on TV.
Much later I sat at home and saw the incredible fuzzy black and white pictures as Neil Armstrong made the giant leap for mankind.
I will never lose the awe of that day.
