New Profiles

Good afternoon:
In putting up a new Facebook Post about former Cleveland Plain Dealer Sports Cartoonist Dick Dugan, I came to a site I have frequented for The site is mainly a clearinghouse of information for and about the Senior Citizen lifestyle, but I have to say my favorite part of the site is the "Senior Profiles", which are long-form articles, amply illustrated..Interviewing interesting older Cleveland area folks..some more famous than others, but many of them are TV and Radio people that made a name in Cleveland and have very good stories to tell..Here's a link to the profile page:

I also want to thank for the use of some pictures over the years for Cleveland Classic Media..Is very much appreciated..

Ken Goodman Weather-KYW-TV 3-1962, 1964

Ken Goodman Weather report slide-1962

KYW-TV Logo from 1961-63...The program promos for One Step Beyond and Biography feature this logo prominently..

I mentioned in our last posting from December 30 that I hoped the coming year would bring more Vintage Cleveland TV Video to light..I honestly didnt think anything would come along this soon..Just found this on YouTube..A series of commercials and two late night weather forecasts by KYW-3's Ken Goodman from the 1962-64 era..Commercials included two Vernors spots and a White Rock Beverages ad..Along with two program promos for "One Step Beyond" and David L. Wolper's "Biography" shows. Some other thoughts:

The first Weather Forecast was sponsored by Sinclair Oil and the announcer was Jay Miltner..It was on a Sunday Night during the "Big Movie"..Goodman says to "Check With Dick Goddard" during the Noon Eyewitness News the next day about an arctic air mass coming through the Cleveland area..

The second (Saturday Night) weather report was sponsored by Vernors and I think I caught Ken saying "Stay tuned now for Gib (Shanley)" but the video cut off at "Gib"..While the video is clocked at 15:11, there are several blank spots..The video actually ends at around 14:00-14:30..Thanks to hhg on YouTube, who uploaded this in October 2010..Some of the video isnt in real good shape, but to have this at all is a real find..
