Authorities spent five days searching
for 11- year- old Phadra Carter.


Her body was found in a shallow grave
in Botetourt County.

[TAPE 94-22]

Her step-father's brother, Billy Layne
was charged with capital murder. He was
convicted, but avoided the death
penalty. In March 1994, a judge
sentenced Layne to two life sentences
in prison.



Roanoke City attempted a hostile
takeover of the Roanoke Gas Company.

For ten days both sides waged a media
war against one another.

The gas company was the apparent winner
of the public's support and the city
finally threw in the towel.

And that's exactly what Irv did for
more than six decades.

In radio, he reigned as Dr. Pepper's
Silver Dollar Man pitching the
softdrink on more than 100 stations.

Later, on WDBJ television, he teamed up
with Don Reno, Red Smiley and the
