The Wright Family
Broadcast Pioneers member Bill Wright, Sr. has been a radio legend for a half century. This picture shows Bill Wright's mother in the center with Bill and his brothers.
Bill is seen at the top right side of the picture. He was five years old at the time. Directly beneath him is brother Lee, age 3. On the left side is brother John, age 6. In the center is the boys' mother, Margaret Wright with Jim, age 2, on her lap. Bill has two sisters. Why aren't they shown in the photo? They weren't born yet.
By the way, Margaret was a singer (and was Bill's father, John) and now we all know from where Bill got his singing talent. Bill tells us that the family portraits were taken each year, and this one, he thinks, was the first of many yearly snapshots.
