Visit Our Exhibit of Walton County Caps
Marty and Art Dees donated the hats in this special exhibit, and we are pleased to share them with our visitors. According to Marty, "Many of these hats are from businesses where we held remote broadcasts either with WGTX/WQUH or WZEP. There are lots of great memories of the owners and employees as well as many listeners who participated. These hats hung on the wall of Art's office at WZEP for many years."
Some of the businesses and organizations represented by the caps are WZEP (of course!), DeFuniak Little League, OW (now Northwest Florida State College), Jimmy's Paint & Body Shop, and L&H Automotive.
We also have a nice selection of fans hanging on the wall behind the caps. We welcome donations of memorabilia from Walton County businesses. Thanks, Marty and Art!
