||YES! The Dick West sign off,
I remember it. And I believe the Eliot program either replaced that or ran
in a rotation with it.
Maybe I should try to reach Carl B. or K. Doll. If I find it, I'll let you
Also, I've been catching up on the guestbooks and here are some things that
popped in my head:
-The Tulsa Shopping Channel - Remember this Tulsa Cable/United Artists/TCI
(can't recall who owned it at the time) station that was on Channel 34 or
something? I remember it was on the third row of the box about in the middle
of the old style cable box (the smaller brown version, not the bigger white
version. I remember there was a dark haired young lady named Darci, maybe,
she sure was cute. Anybody remember the details on this?
-JW Weeks, an ad guy that used to be the obnoxious country voice standing
in front of all the used cars with the girls in bikinis and say, "And now
back to our movie starring..." and then he would go through a list of funny
names. He was an ad buyer in the late 90s last I heard. Is he still in the
-FORE Tulsa. Remember this? Put on by the Jr. League. What a cool event.
I cant recall why they quit doing it.
-Heidi Browning, she used to be on Channel 2 and then moved to Channel 9.
I think she went to OSU and she was a H-O-T-T-Y! Can't seem to find her on
the web. Just curious to see if she is still in the biz.
-Deidre Davis, I know she went into PR or something in the NE when she left
Tulsa with her Pharma Sales Hubby, but just wondering if she every dove back
into TV or anything. She used to live down the street from my wife and me.
-Speaking of Time Capsules... Edison High School buried a time capsule by
the flag pole, I believe in the 60s and I am wondering when they added the
new library up front if they considered looking for it first or is it buried
under the new library forever, now? I know they didn't care about pulling
out some of the trees buried in memory of the 7 astronauts lost on the Challenger
when they built it, so I imagine a time capsule would not be considered
-Cars rusting when they are buried... the reason why cars dont rust
as they did in the case of say, oh, a '57 Plymouth, is because now auto makers
use a system called e-coat which is electro-statically charged to the
undercarriages and exteriors as it is submerged into a tank. This covers
every inch of what needs to be protected, evenly. Which could not be done
in the past. This technology was in place in the late 70s early 80s.
-Finally, Bell's being ousted. This makes me so sad, my wife and I met for
the first time at Bell's when she was 14 and I was 15-20 years ago this summer.
I still remember the same exact place. It was directly under the Skyride
(no, I was not looking up!) in front of the entrance of the picnic area by
the Zingo. There's something rotten in Pittsburgh on that whole deal, I tell
ya! Amazing that Big Crash, err Splash isn't getting the same grief. Hmmmm.
I'd be lying if I told you I understood that Bell's/Fairground deal
