MARYVILLE (AP) — A Maryville couple has received a rare wire recording of their 1949 wedding ceremony.
Milburn and Johnnie Waters got the recording as a surprise from their daughter on their 61st wedding anniversary celebration. Daughter Pamela Speed became aware of the recording, which had been stashed away at radio station WGAP.
According to The Daily Times, it probably was made by a family friend at Forest Hill Baptist Church.
Johnnie Waters said the couple didn’t even know such a recording existed. She said the voices seemed so young.
