Former Kleinhans usher recalls 1945 VE Day concert

Today marks the 72nd anniversary of VE Day, the beginning of the end of World War II. The German surrender was marked by celebrations around the world. This report from WBFO's archives was produced five years ago by contributor Rich Kellman. It's the story of a Buffalo teenager who was in the midst of it all and remembers it as if it were yesterday.
