Yes! OMG, he was hilarious!!! He would say "Here's for all the folks who have requested to see Chicky a little longer..." and then he would STRETCH the rubber chicken A LITTLE LONGER!!!! lol!!!!

Oh my gosh, what memories!

I haven't heard anyone say "pony keg" in at least 20 years! Is there still any place in town called a "pony keg?" Another question - would anybody who didn't live in Cincy before, say 1980 or so have any clue what a pony keg was?

How about Pat & Joe's? "My best friends are Pat & Joe, they save my mommy dough."

I never made it to Uncle Al's, but I was on Play It Safe with my brownie troop.

Score two for Juniper! Had totally forgotten about Pat and Joe's, and "Play it Safe" was what I tuned into on an occasional boredom-filled Sunday morning along with "Call the Doctor."

Who-all remembers "Juvenile Court," on Channel 9 during the late '70s? That was must-see TV for kids in high school and middle school, many of whom had potential for having their situations re-enacted on the program LOL.

Wasn't there also a Sunday-morning show called "Police Call" on WCPO? Right before BPA King of Bowling with Jack Moran . . .

Wasn't a pony keg a small {half?} keg that used to be sold at said stores?

And, yes, there are still "Pony Kegs" in Cincinnati. Many, actually:

AND, OMG!!!

"Police Call"!!! "Play It Safe"!!! My step-dad was on "Bowling For Dollars".

What memories!!

Default Bob Shreve, PPP

Does anyone remember the baby doll with the missing hair that would appear then disappear on the bottom of the TV screen during the movie intermissions? NOW THAT WAS FUNNY!!!
