Florida Citrus Mutual Calling

Florida Citrus Mutual Calling was a weekly public service program produced from 1958 to 1979 by Florida Citrus Mutual. The 15-minute program, cut to five minutes in length by the 1970’s, dealt with issues and news of interest to the organization’s member growers and was hosted by Frank Nesbitt, Tom Osborne, Don Farmer, and Earl Wells during its 21-year run.

Mutual initially taped the shows at Lakeland’s WLAK but eventually purchased its own recording equipment and recorded them at its downtown Lakeland headquarters. The tapes were then mailed to stations in the citrus growing areas of the state which usually aired them on the weekends.
