Editor's note:  We're preparing to move to a new building at the end of 2012 so we're taking inventory of everything in our current facility.  That includes thousands of old videotapes.  We're sharing some of what we find, here on NewsOn6.com.

If you watched any television in the 1970s and 80s, you saw commercials for Slim Whitman, one of the most successful recording artists of all time.

His songs have been featured in numerous films, including "Mars Attacks" where his version of "Indian Love Call" becomes the ultimate weapon against an alien invasion.

On October 4, 1981, "the smiling starduster" performed a show at the Tulsa State Fair and KOTV reporter Winifred Washington was there.
