One of the things which made CB radio such an interesting and memorable activity were the various conversations between other people. Most of the time, these exchanges were routine stuff. But every once in a while something off the wall happened which made the event memorable. It's inevitable that anyone who's been involved in an activity, for as long as I've been involved in CB radio, will have a story or two to tell. Well, here are my tales of those "special" CB related activities. Some are humorous, some were reflective of a particular circumstance, or of the colorful people who shared the airwaves back then.
