7-7:30  A TRIBUTE TO FRED HARTEIS

Last week, many mourned the loss of local businessman and mentor Fred Harteis.  According to his obituary, Big Fred fit more quality into 64 short years than most could into 100.

I had the honor to meet and interview Fred with Bill Hornung who introduced us.  Bill wanted everyone to hear Fred's business advice and positive outlook on life. This show is from February of 2011.
