I like Tim Lones because.....

One of my oldest online friends is Tim Lones. Tim and I first got acquainted with each other through the media message boards. He is one who can be really called a media geek, which in his case is a compliment.

Tim writes a blog called Cleveland Classic Media. In it he relives the old days of television. You see, we were both in our infancy during the inancy of television. He also posts a bit about radio.

As I have wrote before, Tim puts a lot of effort in his blogs. He lives with his wife, Linda, in Canton, Ohio and due to physical problems doesn't drive. But he will take the bus to Cleveland and Youngstown in order to do research for his blog, which for him is a labor of love. He has an extensive collection of TV guide magazines and also goes into microfilm files at the library to get material for his blog. In fact the newspaper article in my last post was gleaned from his blog.

Another thing Tim keeps up on, is events happening around the area pertaining to television history. He posted October 5 about a special airing later this month on PBS 45/49 called, Turn Blue:The short life of Ghoulardi. He also has some info about the upcoming Ghoulardifest.

If you haven't yet read Cleveland Classic Media, give yourself plenty of time to go over and read it. Even if you aren't from the area, there will be something of interest to you.
