Celebrate ‘Spirit of ’62’ with KIRO Newsradio and MyNorthwest
During 2022, KIRO Newsradio’s resident historian Feliks Banel will present a series of radio stories, video, other digital media and public programs marking the 60th anniversary of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Spirit of ’62 will commemorate the past and, more importantly – like the fair itself – will look to the future, too!
The futuristic yet nostalgic fun begins with a special one-hour live TV broadcast from the Space Needle on Wednesday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. called “Spirit of ’62: Celebrating the Seattle World’s Fair.” Feliks will host the show, and will welcome special guests from Century 21 history along with other surprises. The program will be carried live on the Seattle Channel (via cable channel 21 in Seattle, and streaming everywhere else) courtesy of the Seattle Channel, Downtown Seattle Association, and the Space Needle.
