The KQV Bridal Fair . . .
The KQV Bridal Fair was a staple for KQV beginning in 1969. It was everything for the bride or the bride to be.

Bridal Fair began in February 1967 in Omaha at KOIL. KQV Program Director Mike McCormick brought Bridal Fair with him when he came to KQV. Bob Wilson was also at KOIL and was the Master of Ceremonies for the first KOIL Bridal Fair. Bridal Fair was so successful in Omaha, it was only natural that it would be a hit in Pittsburgh for KQV as well.
