Brad's Beat: 60 Years A Barber
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- Not everyone keeps the same job for decades at a time, but one man is going for a record. Bob Prichard has been cutting hair for 60 years. He's a World War II veteran and still cuts hair at "The Club" in downtown Joplin. He also cuts hair with his son, who has only been doing it for 40 years. The two say it takes talent to cut hair this long.
"There's a little bit of art that goes into it, to know what you're doing," said Bob Pritchard, Cutting Hair 60 Years.
Bob started cutting hair once he got back from his service in the Navy.
