I was told that too long ago. He surely did not look like he did not. I guess the world is really our stage, play according to it.

I would love to hear if anyone remembers a show that came on Channel 5 named the Journey to the Unknown. The opening visual had a rollercoaster and the music was quite scary. I ask people about that show here in Cincinnati, and many do not remember it. It was a mix of Alfred Hitchcock, Twilight Zone, and any scary show you can think of. It was quite good, but did not stay on very long. It was a national show.

Yeah in the afternoon we had Hattie the Witch and Larry and the puppets-then on to PBS for the Electric Company and Zoom something. I can not recall the complete name of the latter show?? Who can help an old lady out.

Well, I don't remember either.

I keep asking if anyone recalls a kid's show with "Chuck Wagon" Moore and, so far, nobody has.

You'd think with the Internet that we'd have answers right away but I guess it takes motivation and research and time.

I was in love with the song and it was more than the word "Zoom." This is why I probably thought the name of the program was more than "Zoom." (LOL)!!

PRO WRESTLING IS NOT FAKE!!!
Mwahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Wild Bull Curry. Flying Fred Curry. Chief White Owl. Bobo Brazil. Even a masked "heel" called The Big O. Ladies in one-piece bathing suits clawing at one another's beehives. All broadcast from Cincinnati Gardens, and must-see TV on Saturday afternoons. (Except when it was banned as punishment for practicing headlocks and dropkicks on sibling victims.)

And I had forgotten it was broadcast from the Gardens. I just realized I went to the wrestling matches there once. I remember not being very impressed, however
