Teenagers Listening to WVLR at the Eagle's Nest

Teenagers Listening to WVLR at the Eagle's Nest | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Teenagers studying and playing pool at the Eagle's Nest, a popular teen hangout in downtown Sauk-Prairie. The Eagle's Nest had a juke-box, but the WVLR (Wisconsin's Very Live Radio) radio pictured here was likely to be on, especially during the daily one hour rock 'n roll show. The Petula Clark song "Downtown" was playing when the photograph was taken. Caption reads: "Popular Song, 'Downtown,' accompanies homework session and pool game downtown at the Eagle's Nest, a favorite teenage hangout. Nest has juke-box, but WVLR receiver is more likely to be on, especially during rock-'n-roll show."
