Default Cleveland Television

I am looking for any information about a TV show that I appeared on as a little girl. I took singing lessons at the Boyd Heath TV Arts Studio in the early 50's. We did a Sunday morning TV show hosted by King Jack. Our little group did the commercial for Bi-Rite stores. I was the second "i" in the commercial. Does anyone remember the name of the TV show? We were opposite Gene Carroll. We were on Channel 9. Finding this info is at the top of my bucket list. Any help? Our lessons were at the Hippodrome Building.

Are you sure it was channel 9 because Gene Carroll was on channel 5....at least as I remember...My cousin was on that show in the late 60's....

I remember it well. It was hosted by Don Webster and aired late Saturday afternoons on Channel 5. It featured various pop musicians of the day.

No, it wasn't upbeat. This was a children's show. It was WXEL, channel 9 in Cleveland before channel 8. We followed Dorothy Fuldheim.

Well, that must be before my time, then. I was born in 1961 and never heard of a Channel 9. When I was little, there were only three channels -- 3, 5, and 8 -- followed later by 61 and 43 (UHF).

The WXEL call sign was previously used on channel 8 in Cleveland, Ohio, on what is now WJW.
