ABOVE: Page 236 in the 1966 Colonial High School yearbook really takes long time Orlando natives back to the good old days of AM radio in Orlando with an advertisement for WLOF Channel 95. Back in the day it was said that the call letters stood for We Love Our Freedom or We Love Orlando Florida. Regardless of the meaning – teens LOVED WLOF! Also on the page are advertisements for Better Foods Market with a photo of two employees behind the meat case and Belk’s Florist Shop at Colonial Plaza.
