Yeah, apparently that person doesn't know just how important the Duke was in Louisville radio. Same goes for 'LRS and the late Ron Clay. Spent many mornings listening to Clay and Meiners.

Speaking of old radio personalities, does anyone remember the commercials for the old Fairgrounds Motor Speedway on WTMT-AM? They were done by a man named Charlie Ryle. I'd love to hear those again.

Absolutely classic stuff. Clay brought his "A" game every day. Thanks for reminding me about him.

Does anyone remember Burger Chef? I remember that they had a two story restaurant on 4th Street back in the late 60's. I think that the chain is now out of business. Another chain that I remember was H. Salt Fish and Chips, a competitor to Long John Silvers.
I also remember a place called Immorde's, which was at 3rd and Ormsby. They were a really good sandwich shop.

There's a difference between the "baked" then refrigerated pies and true Ice Box Pie. True Ice Box Pie was made with a gel or pudding (my Mom preferred chocolate but, I liked lemon) then covered in whipped cream and refrigerated until the pudding (or geletine) solidified. She usually used a grahm-cracker crust.

Default The Toy Tiger

Originally The Brown Supper Club with theater in the round and serving food, it became The Whole Thing Lounge in the early 70s. The new owner Denny Landrum took the logo for the Brown's old lounge area (of a Tiger with a martini, leaning on a table) and created the Toy Tiger. I was a patron from the start then ownership changed. I worked there starting in 1978. It was a very dressy, classy place where you might even see the Louisville Mayor and friends at the front room bar. All Las Vagas show acts in the show room, and everyone dressed to impress. Women dressed to out do the others and men in suits with ties. This was Disco at it's best with wrap-dresses and Nic-Nic shirts with leisure suits. Then do to legal problems (not associated directly with the club) the owner turned it Rock n Roll using local acts. That was it's downfall as the acts became more heavy metal the crowd degenerated into hulligans and druggies. Drug busts, fights and shootings caused local concern. The last straw was the last owner's attempt to convert it into a Gentlemen's club (Pharoh's strip club) and residents, backed by religious leaders got together a petition and had their liqour license denied. The only thing left is the old section of garage standing behind the current Thornton's.

I wish I could read all of this. I don't want to add stuff that was all ready added. I could probably come up with a long list of recent closures such as Suncoast and Pizza Magia. NOt to mention Discovery Zone. Chi-Chi's and Stacy's. When I was a kid I would get a plate of those ham cubes for the salad.

Do you remember when WAKY came to town? For two days they played nothing but "Purple people eater" by Sheb Wooley. Does anyone remember a DJ by the name of Beecher Frank and Paul Copwley. They were big back in the 50's.
