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.

Post 800: Time to chat

Hi Guys, It's hard to believe that this is post number 800 for this blog. I started this blog out of my desire to communicate. Since radio and television is becoming more and more automated and less and less personal, I'm glad I made the decision to go in this direction as it has given me many blessings. When I first decided to write my musings, a friend from the radio and television boards who goes by the name of newsnomore, told me not to be discouraged if I didn't get any readers. The fact that I did in the early going made me surprised and grateful that anyone was enjoying what I wrote. I've had people tell me that maybe it wasn't meant for me to ever be in radio, that maybe my calling was blogging. Nowadays I think blogging makes for better two way conversation than terrestrial radio, especially the way I do it, non confrontational. The closest I come from any confrontation is the innocent digs that Pat and I shoot at each other. On an average day I get be

Dear Suzanne

Dear Suzanne, The past few days, you have been on my mind quite a bit. I have thought about the first time I discovered your blog and how it made me laugh and smile. I left a comment, then wrote you an email telling you how much I liked your humor and photography. You wrote me back, saying you liked my blogs too. I then gave your blogs-you had three at the time-a special place on my sidebar. I called it great humor and photos from Mississippi. I also introduced you to the people who read my blog, at that time just people from the Cleveland-Akron-Canton, Ohio area. You helped my presence on the internet grow. I now get regular readers from Canada, Europe, and Australia, as well as many states. We became good blogging friends. You would comment on my blog as well as blogs you discovered from our friendship. Your talent got you many friends in-as you would put it-Bloggeritaville. We emailed each other quite a bit, with jokes, videos, or just to say hi. You got to know a lot about my f

Lawson's Chip Dip

On a couple of occasions I have written posts dedicated to Lawson's, a convenience store chain that was located in Ohio for close to 50 years. In the late 1980's the chain was bought out by Dairy Mart, of Engfield Ct. Dairy Mart was then purchased by Alimentation Couche-Tard, and most stored were rebranded Circle K. Something that has survived the years since Lawson's has left the landscape is Lawson's Chip Dip. I get many hits on this blog from people out of Ohio, I'm thinking former Buckeyes, looking for availability of this chip dip. I had gotten an email from a former resident of Cleveland looking for it. I emailed Circle K about this sometime ago asking if it was possible to send the dip out to those out of state, they said because of quality issues that it was not possible. My only suggestion would be to get in touch with Circle K in your home area and ask them to start stocking this very popular item that seems to make every get-together complete. N
