Topic: Dewey(s) The Barber
Email: aa5drvr at yay balk com.
Comments: There were 2 Deweys the barber. One was Dewey Holmes and the other Dewey Hess. Dewey Hess has the shop at 21st and Garnett. Holmes is the uncle of Hess. They both worked in the same shop at 11th and S. 91st Street for some time.

There was also another Hess barber, Val. The Hess brothers were active stock car racers in the old fairgrounds Dick Colvin days.

Dewey Holmes, the uncle, was an avid bowler and competitive pistol shooter. He had shops all over town (including in his home near McClure Park). He had a shop about 5th and Sheridan, and that's where I remember the hand-painted sign from.

Most recently, he was working from a mobile home at 11th and 129th street, but has since retired, I suppose.

Dewey Holmes was old school, but had a good touch.

Comments: There was a Sandy's on 11th Street (west of Pittsburgh, further west than McDonald's was), on the south side of 11th. It was actually there before McDonalds.

When we were kids we had a running argument over whether we would go to Sandy's or McDonald's. If mom had to break the tie, then we usually went to Griff's on 21st Street.

We also used to go to a BBQ joint on N. side of 11th between Sheridan and Yale, called 3 Little Pigs. Just west of where Ofixco was. It's a used car lot. The building looks more modern than the normal 11th Street building. Kinda of like a rip-off of Pizza Hut architecture.

Now, does anyone recall the "Sandy's" hamburger joint? I'm thinking on Admiral between Sheridan and Yale. I believe the sign had a smiling girl with a Scottish Tam-O-Shanter on her head. Am I close?

Ciao Hounds!

Try the trail starting at the photo in GB 226. There is a website devoted to the Sandy's Hamburgers chain with a Tulsa page (TTM contributors are quoted). Your Sandy's was at the NE corner of Pine and Sheridan.

Comments: I don't remember that and I've lived near that corner off and on since childhood. Living so close to the Wonder Bread bakery was quite an adventure though. Lots of fun exploring around there.

In recent news, I was driving by the now half-Zingo and we drove in and took a piece of a white beam. No goodies from the Phantasmagoria left, which was my goal. Maybe I'll try again...

Topic: Tulsa's Almost Automat
: Thank you, Joe (4 entries down).

For years, I've asked folk if they recall those former colored concrete slabs on the NE corner of 11th and Sheridan, and how, once-upon-a-time in the late, lamented '60s, they were destined to be an ahead-of-their-time Automat.

Everyone thought I'd had one toke too many, Back in the Day.

Either it's a True Story, or we're sharing a Consensual Hallucination.

(A topic upon which the Webmaster is an expert.)

Many thanks for the backstory.

No doubt the grassy Fiddler refers to this neither-Tulsa-nor-TV-related page I put out a few months ago.

I discovered this site about 4 months ago. I have spent the last few months catching up with the GB. I grew up in Tulsa, went on to OU and I am now in Houston.

My connection with TTM lies with the Grandpa John's/ Walls Discount furniture TV ads. John Wall was my stepfather. I worked for him throughout my teens as a delivery boy/salesman.

Does anybody remember those fleeting ads?

Thanks for the great site.

Email: aa5drvr at the yahoo
Comments: The Admiral photo reminded of how Tulsa almost stepped into the way-far future back in the 60s.

On the SW corner of 11th and Sheridan is a used car lot. Before that, it was a Consumer's Gas Station.

Before THAT, it was a bare octagonal slab with sections painted in different colors. Existed like that for years before Consumers. A neighborhood grocer planned a development there.

He owned the Cardinal store at 11th and 91st across from Eastwood Baptist Chuch, next door to Dewey's Barber Shop. It was kind of a convenience store before there were such things.

The grocer and another investor obtained that lot and poured the slab to build an Automat (Wikipedia), a fast food restaurant where simple foods and drink are served by coin-operated and bill-operated vending machines.

It never materialized and eventually became a Consumer's Gas Station.

Comments: Yikes! Seeing that Admiral photo re-affirms my "old-coot" status. I can remember all that stuff when it was still up and operating. I can remember when Admiral and 11th street were still carrying highway traffic. There's still a remnant of the Admiral Twin driveway today. Funny to see service stations as they were back in the day. Anyone remember getting premiums from gas stations? Toys, glassware, etc?

Comments: OK, maybe I did not hear the commercial correctly or I was just hearing things. Last night one of those 1-800-2buy-homes ads was on and the woman that was talking with the now familiar Paulette said that she hoped that this was not going to be one of those whiny Linda Soundtrak commercials. So I am wondering if Paulette is actually our Linda Soundtrak reborn. Anyone know?

I've seen those commercials, too. Emmy! Emmy!

Topic: Beryl Ford photos
Email: Just this side of nervana.
Comments: I work with one of Beryl's sons. He has brought several old items to work for us to look at, from old posters to newspapers.

I contacted the library about a picture in the collection showing 15th & Memorial that is captioned as being in the late 1950s and, I got a reply. I told them the picture was taken during the early 1970s. There is a Chevy II that belonged to the manager, Warren, of the U-Totem on the southwest corner. There was a old, genuine country store where the U-Totem was later located. I lived at 89th & 15th and knew that corner very well. I was almost killed trying to beat a semi while running across a graveled Memorial. The church across the street wasn't built until the late 60s or early 70s. So far, the caption hasn't been corrected.

We used to lag quarters with Warren back against the coolers. He was pretty cool and would sell us beer on the QT. Heck, back then you could buy boxes of .22s that were behind the counter glass, or a lock-blade with a dragon on the handle, or a fake wedding ring set. Things are too damned complicated anymore.

Email: Just SW of the Donner Party Family Grill
Comments: Reading about "Twin Peaks" made me think of the latest David Lynch movie, which came out in Belgium in 2006. I noticed a poster of it at one the my downtown artsy-indie cinemas. It's called, "Inland Empire." And get this cast (one only Lynch could bring together):

Laura Dern
Jeremy Irons
Justin Theroux
Harry Dean Stanton

My goodness, Jeremy Irons and David Lynch! What a pair to draw to.

Your buddy, Kyle.

I recently checked up on the former members of one of my favorite bands, Austin-based but Continentally-flavored 8 1/2 Souvenirs, and found that the singer, Chrysta Bell, co-wrote a tune with Lynch for this movie, and performed it. "Inland Empire" played at the Circle Cinema a month or so ago.

Topic: Gailard Sartain's Mayfest art

Gailard Sartain is the Tulsa Mayfest poster artist this year (and Mary Jo Sartain is the Mayfest Chairperson). The new art has an echo of his 2001 poster, which was the best-selling in Mayfest history. I learned from former Mayfest director Michael Patton that the artwork will become a giant mural on the south face of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

I took this snapshot at the unveiling this evening at OSU-Tulsa:

Comments: When I was a child, Dr. Hultgren and I had the same barber. Once when I was about six, he was getting his hair cut and had left his hat on one of the chairs people sit in while they're waiting. I came in with my mother, hopped up on the chair without looking and squashed the good reverend's hat flat as a pancake. As I remember it, he wasn't very amused. I guess he had to forgive me though.

May 5 is my anniversary date or so for my first TV job while in college at KTUL in 1972. I had interviewed for a cameraman job but they gave it to Mahcoe Van Dyke, who had been the station "runner" and it was his time with KTUL as a known and liked employee that cemented that deal.

Bob Hower called me up and asked if I was interested in a projectionist's job and I took it. At $2 an hour or so.

Just a heads up... the 1966 Space Ghost is being released as a boxset on July 17th.

I find the internet amazing. I can't believe that there is a schedule of the CBS Late Movie, showing exactly when I watched 7 Faces of Dr. Lao, and Fearless Vampire Killers when I was in the 7th and 8th grades in the early 70s. I love this site.

Topic: MH2 & Underdog
Email: Wilhelmurg at yahoo dot com
Comments: I just finished the "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" box set last night, which is made up of the first five weeks of episodes. It has some sidesplitting moments (especially from Ed Begley Jr. as Cathy's deaf boyfriend,) but overall it still seems more strange, in a David Lynch sense, than funny.

For the record, the box goes through the psycho killer story arc -- the Lombardis are killed in the first episode along with their two goats and five chickens. The killer -- little Davy -- kidnaps Mary's daughter, and then Mary exchanges herself as his captive, and a media circus/police standoff ensues. The box ends with Loretta (Mary Kay Place) and Charlie hitting a station wagon full of nuns on their way to Nashville, which results in Loretta temporarily losing the uses of her legs. No one has drowned in a bowl of chicken soup yet.

All the good shows seem to take forever to get released. I'm still waiting on Season Two of both "Saturday Night Live," and "Weeds," along with "MH2" now. My biggest concern is that we'll change formats again before the complete run is released, then we'll have to start back at zero. With hope, maybe both the Blue-Ray and HD formats will continue to be format turkeys (remember RCA Selectavision video discs? The Dat tape?)

By The Way -- Disney's live action "Underdog" movie is set to open August 3rd. The last thing the world needs is a live action "Underdog" movie, but I just got a great Underdog bobblehead for my desk -- at least we'll get some good toys out of the deal. It's too bad they didn't make these back in the day - it beats the hell out of the old Soaky Fun Bath Bottle. --WM

Russian cellist and conductor Mstislav Rostropovich (Wikipedia) passed away Friday. He was 80.

"Slava" was conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra when I first came to DC in '85. He and family had fled Russia during the Cold War.

Maybe 18-19 years ago, he was back in Russia the week Gorbachev fell, doing a first NSO concert on Russian national TV in cold, windy Moscow - outdoors. One of my friends, a former DC CBS network news shooter, was there with him and the NSO as NSO's videographer. A crazy time.
