Today I pay tribute to one of my blogging friends, whom I met via the discussion boards in my pre blog days.
Tim Lones, the brains behind Cleveland Classic Media, hits the big five-oh today.
Tim has a great mind for television and radio history here in the Northeast Ohio area. Tim's blog is a very popular one with the media history buffs. Like most of us, Tim's work is a labor of love. Like most of us reading this, Tim is a committed Christian who loves the Lord.
Tim lives in Canton, Ohio. Sometimes he will go to the Cleveland Public Library or the Youngstown Library to do research on stories he will post. This is very time consuming for Tim as he takes a bus to these libraries. Tim doesn't drive due to coordination problems and poor eyesight. Despite these challenges, Tim puts together a product that is read by many, including many area media professionals.
Right now Tim is in the midst of posting several stories pertaining to Christmas specials of the past.
Go over to Cleveland Classic Media and wish Tim a happy 50th. While you're there take a look at some of his impressive posts.
