....unfortunatly that was not the case as Prudential bank or S&L went under via some sort of scam, if I recall right.

Or Avery Savings. (The "Avery Savery"....amost as bad as "Consolidation can save the "Daytion").
It was S&L, I believe cause I remember when it happened. People never got their money back that had accounts there from what I recall if my memory serves me right

The Breckinridge and Dutchmans reference was to Consolidated, not the old Levy's store behind it.

Question: This thread started in 2007. You joined in 2011. How could you be on page 1?

Kingfish- Badly overrated seafood place; liked Hungry pelican much better.
Kingfish for seafood...well, in a pinch...but it was more of a novelty thing, with those over-the-top faux steamboats decorated like Victorian bordellos, with the water moat around and the kitchen in the 'wharf boat'. A place to take out-of-town guests to.

Hungry Pelican was, I believe, the old Cape Codder? There was one @ Hikes Point that we went to alot. The theme was "New England" but the fish style (breaded and deep fried) was Southern, plus you got hush puppies as a side!

I always wondered about that "Avery savery" thing. I always thought that was something my mother made up; that's why I didn't mention it in my earlier post. I can't believe that was their actual advertising. Some others:

Louisville Trust Bank- Changed their name in 1980 to...
United Kentucky Bank- Was later absorbed into Liberty National.
Jefferson Federal- Shelbyville Rd. Plaza location became Vine Records.
Louisville Home Federal- Changed their name in 1981 to...
Future Federal- Was later absorbed into Citizens Fidelity.
WQHI- Hi 95, Louisville's first Top 40 FM Station.
WLRS- LRS 102; Album Oriented Rock
WKJJ- Top 40 on FM and AM; formerly...
WKLO- The Big 1080.
WAKY- The Super 79; home to Bill Bailey and Gary Burbank.
WAVG- 970 AM; home of the Redbirds, broadcated by John Rooney and Ed Peak.
Presto the Clown- Children's Show on WDRB; when they were struggling to stay on the air.
Kirstie Wilde- WHAS TV anchor; later was the anchor on the LA news show where David Horowitz got a gun pulled on him.. ON THE AIR!
Dave Conrad- Balding blond sportscaster on WLKY; later moved to WHAS.
TG&Y- Tacky, gross, and yucky!
European Health Spa- Fitness club; Dupont Square.
Showcase Cinemas- Where we first saw every blockbuster film made in the 70s and 80s.

..and home to Coyote Calhoun. Gary Burbank relocated and made a name for himself in Cincy media, ended up owning or lending his name to a BBQ restaurant.

WLRS...AKA Louisville Radio School

"Louisville's first successful, stand-alone FM station was WLRS, which signed on in 1964. The calls stood for Louisville Radio School, and was intended as a training tool for students of the school."

Welcome to LKYRadio - Classic Louisville, Kentucky Radio - WLRS Page

I sure miss Uncle Ron Clay

Does anyone remember Shakeys pizza. Its now Bonnie and Clyde on Dixie. I can remember going there and to looking through the window to watch them make pizzas, the old player piano, and the little stage in the corner where they had somewhat of a band and we used to go up and play spoons with them. : ). It was a great place to be. The only place I can remember where I didnt have to stay right beside my mother or father, and we always went with a group of friends and or family

sure do. This was a popular spot for high school kids back in the day, down in the PRP/Valley Station area. But also for families.

There really was a Shakey...he was a dixieland /ragtime fan, which is why the place had that sort of decor and player piano music from that era. Shakey's original restaurant was on the east side of Sacramento, CA, and is still in existence (or was in the 1980s, when I lived in Sacto) . Shakey had a good thing going, franchised his concept (Shakey's were across the US in the late 1960s/early 1970s) and took the money to sponsor a big dixieland music festival in Sacramento each year.
