In the area where I live near the NC,VA border,we were able to receive WHIS 6 from Bluefield,West Virginia. Scoop and Snoop would sit in their rocking chairs and were host to a variety of movies and tv shows over the years. My brothers and I would watch especially on the days they were featuring a Roy Rogers movie. The ad is from January 1967.
