Rudee Vallee - you are going WAY back. Wasn't he big back in the days of Stutz Bearcats and fur overcoats? He did appear on sitcoms and variety shows even in the 1960's, but even back then it seemed like his appearances were more for comic effect.

Default jerry springer

I went to a taping of the Jerry Springer show when it was still trying to be a serious program and was still filmed in Cincinnati. The topic was people who had left/been pulled out of religious cults. The show kind of meandered a little and frankly, was a little boring. Jerry tried very hard to make the guests be more controversial but none of them were. I think it was just the personalities of the people who had been chosen for that episode, not the topic.

Rudee was appearing at a super club in Dayton. He made to trip to Cincinnati to appear on the Braun show. It was the early 70s.

Default Bringing back memories

Was anyone up in the wee early hours Christmas morning, around 3 AM, to see channel 5 broadcasting Bob Braun shows? The first show I saw was when Bob Braun and Paul Dixon did their show in '74 from the Ohio State Fair. This show had the cast from both shows obviously. Did it bring back memories. Rob Reider and Mary Ellen Tanner still reside in Cincinnati. I totally forgot about Nancy James, so I'll have to do a google search for her. But, Gwen Conley is a very respected, very renowned voice teacher in NYC. I couldn't find anything on Randy Weidner, but something came up about his son being an engineer, and him being honored for something. But, the article said "the late Randy Weidner". Anyone know anything about Randy's passing? That didn't even show up on my google search. Of course, I'll have to google Colleen Sharp and Bonnie Lou now. The 2nd show on Christmas morning was called "Bob Braun Remembered", and it was a great show. Brought back a lot of wonderful memories. You would think that for the history this city has, there would be some sort of web site of that history we could go to. When I saw the one post about Rubel's bakery, I googled everything I could think of, trying to find out where it was in Walnut Hills, and I got nothing. So, since channel 12 news has a historian, Dan Hurley, I sent him an email to see if he could help. I've emailed him a couple of times before, and never got a response, so I'm not gonna hold my breath waitin for a reply to the email I sent him tonight. If anyone has been to the Museum Center, and seen the pictures they have there of the motor cars that used to be major transportation in this city, my grandpa drove one of those. Have a picture of him in his uniform. The tracks those cars rode on are still in the street I grew up on. I'll check back to this site every so often, to see if more posts have been added. I think this city's history is so interesting that tons of people should come here, and add their little bit of information that would add to the city's history.

These excerpts from Cincy's TV history are great. Somebody finally got around to rebroadcasting the Dixon Chicken Wedding show recently. That type of TV may appear totally corny now, but it is a testament to how the viewing audience felt about the local performers.

Default Ruebels Bakery

I worked at Ruebels for awhile in the 70's, it was located on a side street at Reading Rd. and Melish Ave. (now ML King). I don't know if the building is still there or not. One truck driver would bring a stick of butter on delivery day and take a loaf off of the cooling rack. He would put a slit in the loaf, insert the stick of butter and have one hell of a good lunch!
