Listen NOW to the Walter Breuning special!
On this episode, we are pleased to present an interview with Mr. Walter Breuning in celebration of Mr. Walter Breuning's 114th Birthday. He was born September 21, 1896 and according to the Gerontology Research Group, he is the oldest living human being in the entire world. Walter Breuning was born in Melrose, Minnestota. In 1918, he moved to Great Falls, Montana where he worked for the Great Northern Railway. He was married to Agnes, a woman who was a railroad telegraph operator from Butte. She passed away in 1957. They had no children and Mr. Breuning never remarried.
Walter Breuning has lived through part of the 19th Century, all of the 20th Century and lives into the 21st Century. He says he can remember his grandfather talking about his experiences in the American Civil War and recalls the day President William McKinley was shot in 1901 as the day he got his first haircut.
Mr. Breuning dresses in a suit and tie daily and exercises every day. We are pleased and honored to welcome him for a special interview. Along with a conversation, we will be playing music from every single decade of Mr. Breuning's long life. That's over 100 years of music. Join us as we watch the evolution of music and talk with a man who's message can be appreciated by all.
