WPUV clock returns to Pulaski Theatre

PULASKI — After 16 years, the WPUV clock is returning to the Pulaski Theatre where it once stayed for four decades.
Today, it shares the story of its lifelong journey to find a place to call home:
Well, finally I have made it back home and it feels great!
I’ve been gone a long, long time — much too long.
Oh, yes, it’s been a long and interesting journey with many good times but also some sad times as well. However, through all my trials and tribulations, I never gave up hope.
In my heart, I knew I would make it back.
I didn’t know how or by whose hand I would be delivered, but nonetheless I knew.
And just look at me now!
I look as good as I did the day I was born, and I still work just as well.
I can hardly wait to see all of you again, my dear old friends from the past.
I’ll be looking out once again over an audience full of familiar faces — maybe a little older, but far, far wiser. It seems as if we don’t realize what we mean to each other until we are gone.
In most cases, we never get a second chance.
But I’ve been fortunate to have had many friends from my past who never gave up on me.
And, now, here I am to greet some of them once again. Isn’t it great?
And, better yet, I’ll make new friends who weren’t around before.
A new generation will share time with me!
But, at this point, I should probably tell you more about myself because some of you don’t really know me.
I was born in the 1950s into the Westinghouse family.
Soon after I was born, I was adopted by John and Myrtle Columbus, owners of the WPUV radio station at Cool Springs on Dora Highway in Pulaski.
John and Myrtle made sure that I was given a good home in the Pulaski Theatre.
I spent almost 40 years there, loyally serving my audiences.
I had lots of friends in the Theatre, people such as Wilmer Ryan, Bob McKinney and Todd Connor, to name only a few.
Then, sadly, as the years passed and my friends moved on, my home in the theatre was broken apart in 1991, and I was forced to move.
Fortunately, with the help of Todd Connor, I got out just in the nick of time before I was beyond repair.
I spent a long period of time languishing alone, waiting for new friends.
And I’m grateful that Connor and his grandson, Nick, adopted me and gave me back to the theatre where I was once again befriended by my old friend, Bob McKinney, who installed me in the same spot where I had spent so many good times.
It really feels good to be home again!
Hopefully, very soon, all of you will be able to come back and once again share good times with me in my wonderful home, the refurbished historic Pulaski Theatre, the jewel of Main Street!
