May 20, 2023 | May 20, 1973

WQLN NPR first signed on the air in 1973. On May 20th of that year, Wldameer Park opened for its 77th Season. The Paratrooper thrill ride was the park’s newest attraction. After weeks of testing the hydraulic arm, the ride was summer fun-ready.

This Day in History is presented by Chronicles, showing Pitt Hole City: Ghost of American’s Black Gold Part 2 next Thursday night on WQLN PBS.
