I have been on TV for a number of things. I did some commercials when I was younger...for a local department store...modeling coats. Also, when I was about 16, I was in a parade (Gasparilla) and was "on air" for that too. As an adult, I do a lot of work for deaf and hard of hearing kids - helping them to listen and speak - and have been on the news a couple of times. I've also been in the newspaper many times. I think the "1 in 4 americans" statistic is funny...and a little scary!

Good one! Reading your post reminded me that I was also in a newspaper when I was 12 as I was holding one end of a banner for my Girl Scout troop marching in the parade. I distinctly remember some guy from the side singing a song to me as I walked by: "hey there little red riding hood...". At that time, I had no idea what that meant.

Innocence is bliss!

in my music career I had numerous TV appearances. Bob Braun Show in Cincinatti, Jimmy Dean Show Houston, Merv Griffin Show LA, Nashville Now, CMTV, Atlanta Channel 2 Special, New Country Music Show, and Hee Haw.
These were a lot of fun to do, and many are memorable moments for me.
Especially Merv, where I met Ed McMahon, and Hee Haw where we met Roy Acuff.
Now I'm just a picker who Airstreams....

Fun thread!

While working as a musician in Los Angeles I had the pleasure of playing extra twice with the Tonight Show Band when they needed french horns. I also played the American Music Awards and Barry Manilow Telivisions specials. Oh yah, and sidelined (seen but not heard) in an episode of the New Columbo show.

My Daughter and I were on national news 11 years ago. She was being interviewed by Jim Axelrod for suing the local school board for discrimination and violation of the civil rights act of 1968. I just sat there for moral support. She also appeared on Good Morning America for the same thing.

When I was a 'little' younger back then, our Campfire Girls Group appeared on a local television kiddie show called Ranger Roy and Anna Banana!

And years later, when I worked as a dispatcher for AAA emergency Road Service, when it was the season for calls that came flooding in for roadside help, one of the tv reporters interviewed me..I seem to remember him asking how my day was taking all these calls and replying: "hot and sweaty"..and it was on the news!.. It took me several weeks to live that one down!

I guess I must be above average

Seems like I have been on tv many times over the years, for one event or another, the first time I think was for a Welcome Wagon event, or maybe a Girl Scout event. I have also been on local programs for charities, and a couple of times for the garden center I used to work for, in commercials and in connection with my own store. I can't seem to go a year without either being on tv or in the newspaper, guess it must be my fate.

I brought animals from the Crandon Park Zoo ,where I worked briefly, to a kids show in Miami in the early 70's a few times. Not TV ,but I was in the September 1969 issue of Playboy magazine modeling clothes for a spread called "Campus Fashion Forecast". Shot on the Johns Hopkins Campus.

We're all on TV

We're all on TV scores of times daily—traffic light cameras, security cameras, etc.

I was interviewed in about 1968 by a Wilkes-Barre TV station about the water problem in Kingston Twp.—our local water company had died and we were up in arms. Our lawyer kept telling us what we couldn't do and I think that had a lot to do with going to law school, because there's always something we can do, though not always easy, but at least there are options we weren't hearing.

I was interviewed after coming out of court in the mid '70's in Buffalo, but they never broadcast it. They were shining those lights right in my eyes, I could hardly see I was squinting so much, so I probably looked awful.

I do remember when Buffalo Bob came to NYC TV in the late '40's. Howdy Dowdy was only a small part of the Saturday morning show and was kept in a drawer of a desk Bob Smith used. Buffalo meant those big animals out west to me, not the city. Pretty soon Bob Smith realized Howdy Dowdy was more popular than he was. Perhaps I saw Robert in the peanut gallery. I liked Captain Video better, he of "he asks no quarter and gives none".
