See You Again Curley

Curley was a great instrumentalist, singer and personality. Curley and I never had a cross word between us in all the years we worked together at WFBM-TV Channel 6 in Indianapolis. I cannot imagine having another friendship like ours.

If you have ever wondered what my entertainment programs are all about, think "stand up comedy" for adults.  I no longer do children's shows.

Back in 1946 I joined the American Guild of Variety Artists and became a professional emcee/entertainer.  With few nightclubs in Indiana I played Elks, Eagles, Moose and American Legion Posts.  Unless you are at least a full-fledged senior you may not know or remember that many private clubs had legal slot machines until 1953.

This paid for their entertainment programs.  So, I was entertaining many years before my days in television.
