(from GB 308) DolfanBob said re Sunday morning TV:
I also have fond memories growing up watching the Lewis
Back then, we just did not think about his or anybody else's mannerisms.
I always thought he was very intelligent, informative and always cheerful.
It was what was on before we went to church.
If not him, it was Rex Humbard, Dr. Robert Schuller or Oral Roberts. I liked
him because I was getting ready to go to church and so it was a break from
the double Gospel. Then if we were lucky enough. Roller Derby would be on
when we got home. Indeed life was good.

I hadn't thought of Pastor Pack in a couple of dog's ages. One good story
I think I heard from Rev. Hultgren himself.
When wireless microphones were new, the good Reverend started using one so
he could move around without the constraints of the wire. Everything went
fine until the pastor of Boston Avenue Methodist heard about it, said "what
a great idea," and got one too... on the same frequency. There were dueling
sermons on the churches' loudspeakers for a couple of weeks before an
ecclesiastical frequency coordination session resolved the problems.
11/2006: Former KOTV anchor Larry Thomlinson has written a new book
of short stories: Life, Death and other
Larry: "Of the nine stories in this collection two are true. They are memoirs
of two marvelous ladies in my life. There's Miss
Isabelle Ronan, who in a haunting two-story house, taught me the language
I have carried with me since those Saturday morning sessions so long ago
in 'A Time Remembered.' There's 'Allie' our maid--who for all practical purposes
was my second mother during my formative years growing up. 'Allie' is also
the story of one of the worst chapters in American history that occurred
in my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It's the story of the events of that horrible
day--June 1, 1921. I must add that the dialogue
between Allie and me pertaining to her involvement in the riot was added
for emphasis and storytelling. However, all of the events expressed are
historically recorded. The remaining seven stories are composites of people
and characters I've known over the years. (However, I must add that any
resemblance to anyone actually living or dead is purely coincidental.) The
stories originate in Tulsa, Oklahoma and continue through to my life here
in southern California. These are stories gathered from an eclectic life
of multiple careers, ranging from acting, journalism, radio and television,
and the wonderful experience I've had dealing with people as a licensed
California funeral director. It is through these life learning experiences
that I derived the title Life, Death and other Dysfunctions. I hope
you enjoy the journey as much as I have."
