Powers Gouraud

Powers Gouraud, "The Old Night Owl," began some of his earlier nightly commentary on WCAU radio, which was sponsored by Yellow Cab, with "Yel-low, night owls and night owlettes, yel-low!"

On the Friday, December 15, 1950 broadcast Powers Gouraud spoke with Pearl Bailey. Powers made reference in the interview to Broadcast Pioneers member Harry Harris who was then writing for the Evening Bulletin. Previously, Harry had worked for WCAU Radio as a writer for Powers Gouraud.
