I had never read this blurb about Linda and Sam before. Otherwise it`s a boring article but here`s the important portion.

Some of the early announcers included Tom Neale, also with WTAP-TV and WCHS-TV Charleston. John Simpson, Harold McWhorter, Marsh McCarty, Alex Mumford and Sam Goodman. In 1953, Mary Alice Kemery, a Parkersburg girl, came with WCOM as continuity writer and traffic director. It was here she met Sam Goodman, and they later married in Pittsburgh, where they were both working. Mary Alice is better known as Linda Goodman, world-renowned astrologer and author of the 1968 book "Sun Signs," which sold over 5 million copies and spawned the top-selling sequels "Love Signs" and "Star Signs." People Magazine said of her, "For millions of Americans, the age of Aquarius arrived with Linda Goodman." She died in 1995. Sam Goodman died in 1983.

Yes, that is from when Sam worked for WCOM radio (well, obviously). It is an old article but still very cool to find!

When I came across the old article, I was searching for something entirely different. That made it double cool to me

That's sad that Sam died. I bet it devastated Linda.
