Joe Larkins ponders a local TV urban legend, and a legend responds.
I'd heard the legend from kids in my grade-school as though they'd seen it the night before, so I had always assumed it was true. Alas!
So I guess we won't be finding that in the WHBQ vault. But I still hold out hope there is a vault at our local TV stations, containing the treasures of the Golden Age of Memphis TV.
Like a commenter said on Mr. Larkins' blog, "only in Memphis did the top rated station have a rasslin commentator and magician doing the weather!"
