Friday is the 71st anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. A day, as President Roosevelt said, would “live in infamy”. What was it like to be there that day? That was the question Pat and Tom posed to three veterans who visited the studios several years ago, who WERE there that day. And the re-telling of one of the men has become an annual moment on the Pat and Tom show, in honor of all the men and women who died that day. Listen to Bob Adobotti as he recounts his role on that terrible day.
