I would like to know if ANYONE remembers "The John Wade Show". It was on in the afternoon on Ch. 9 WCPO in the 1970's. When I mention it, people look at me like I have three heads. It was a show like "The Bob Braun Show", or a late night talk show, during the day.

Wikipedia mentions it, so I know I'm not insane.
WCPO-TV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Wade - Singer/Host "The John Wade Show" & "A John Wade Christmas Special". Now lives in Sedona Arizona

It probably wasn't on long, but we watched it because my grandma's sister was married to Motz Dee Felice, who was the brother of the local musician Dee Felice, who was the leader of the house band on the show.

Of course, Dee Felice went on to open a restaurant/jazz bar in Covington, KY,that bears his name, where he was the headliner.

I'd just like to know if ANYONE remembers this show!!

Soozycue520 - you are not crazy. I too remember the John Wade Show. I didn't until you mentioned it and, for the life of me, I can't remember what the guy looked like. I'll have to search around to see if I can find an old photo.

How could anyone discuss WCPO-TV and leave out Jack Fogarty? Remember him? He would do these commentaries every day that always began with, "I may be wrong, but it seems to me. . . ."

Yes - that segment of the news was a favorite of my grandfather. He looked
forward to it. It's probably been 40 years since Jack Fogarty's editorials have
been run.

I remember seeing Peter Grant in the hardware store on Central Parkway near Mohawk (Pickerings? Audemkampes?) when I was a child.

I was mightily impressed that someone I saw on the tube could actually walk up and down the aisles just like me. My first brush with greatness!

LOL! It's easily been thirty years, but I clearly recall turning from Dixmyth onto Whitfield in Clifton on a summer Friday afternoon only to see the Channel 9 weather guy at the time (Larry something) behind the wheel of a yellow VW Beetle making the opposite turn. Jaded teenaged cynic be damned, my involuntary reaction was to call the man's name out loud, hahahahaha. He gave me a big grin as he rounded the corner. Wow, somebody from television drives a bug car and maybe lives in Clifton, who'da thunk it?

I can only imagine how my young nephews first dealt with Reds pitcher (at the time) Rob Dibble's setting up housekeeping in their Loveland neighborhood.

Most nights when I was at home, I'd catch Al Schottelkotte at "eeeeeeleven o'clock." Will never forget the "mic still on" incident in the late '70s, when the screen had gone dark instead of moving to a commercial. Smiling, smooth, suave Schottelkotte could be heard bellowing, "What the h*ll's going on?!! Ya gotta move the godd*mn..." Ah wuz rollin'.
