I can't remember who asked me about this item, but one-time CBS executive in Graphic Arts, George Olden, who designed the little man logo for "To Tell the Truth" and many other CBS items, as well as the 5 cent stamp that was introduced in 1963 appears as a guest on a 1963 "I've got a Secret" show that will air on GSN Sunday April 8th.
I just received this from John Thornton. Is there anybody from Studio crews than help him out?

Dear Ted Perzeszty,
I have been researching the life of Debbie Weems who was on Captain Kangaroo from 1973-1978.

Do you have, or know of anyone who does have videos (beta, VHS, 2in) of the Captain Kangaroo Show? I have only found a few of the "straight to video" VHS ones which were put out in the mid 1980s. I would be very interested to view some episodes which featured Debbie Weems. Do any of your members have recordings or videos?

Thanks again,
John Thornton

Posted for your info:

Dear Tony,
You were kind and lovely to give me an interview about Grace Kelly for my biography, 'True Grace;The Life and Times of an American Princess.' I shall be giving a reading of the book - and plan to read an excerpt which includes your interview - at 7.30 on March 28th, at Barnes and Noble opposite Lincoln Centre. I should so love to meet you, and do hope you can make it. And if you have time, do check out my website, www.wendyleigh.co.uk: <http://www.wendyleigh.co.uk>

Kind regards, Wendyxx Wendy Leigh www.wendyleigh.co.uk: <http://www.wendyleigh.co.uk>

Ted,
I knew Ms.Grace Kelly from my days as a cameraman on "The Golden Windows," soap opera at NBC-TV back in the early '50's. I used to buy her a strawberry milk shake and a piece of pound cake from the Walgreen, (I think) across from the Radio City Music Hall. She was a lovely young lady. She left us to go to Hollywood to star in a movie with Bing Crosby. Perhaps Gayle Depoli will go to this interview and then write a report to us.

Tony C.

I would be happy and honored to attend. I think I can clear my clear my schedule to get there.

Vinny was a very nice man, a real gentleman.
He'll be missed.

My son Phil who free lances at CBS told me that Vinny Aida
died yesterday. Apparently he was quite ill.

Hi Dave,

I doubt you remember me but we spoke may years back. In fact I still have your QSL card that you have on your site.

I just started working at CBS as a tech worked at NBC and ABC a few years now retired from the NYPD in 2003 after 20 years of mosty tending to the radio repeater systems there.

I am trying to get the club at CBS going again since Bob Myers retired last year.

If you can provide any help it would be appreciated.

If you frequent the 2 meters I have a machine now for club use on 146.745.

I also have machines on 445.175 as well as 224.46 with an extensive linked/voted system.

You and anyone else that you know of can join as well.

I am trying to get a group of guys to meet on 146.745 to see how much interest there is to date.
