Bud Weiser & Bouncing Billy Meet for Drinks 2013

This is one of the best reunions in quite a while. Bouncing Billy (left) & Bud Weiser recorded the first ever WTIT show in 1967. Until 1976 they along with Galloping Gary & Johnnie Walker were the essence of WTIT. Billy would return only once more, in 1985 for the "relaunch" of what we consider the current era of WTIT. With Johnnie Walker, Billy & Bud taught The Cosmic Commando what WTIT was all about. That night in 1985 was the last time Billy & Bud were together...until this week. Picture here at a TGI Fridays, they spent the night drinking and talking of all those memories.
