As an addendum to our posts on Ward Kimball (can we ever post enough about Kimball?), our pal Don Brockway (Psst, check out his webpage devoted to Disney voice actress Kathryn Beaumont) is posting on YouTube a rare 1978 broadcast of Tom Snyder’s Tomorrow Show, shot on location at Grizzly Flats!
Like many of your readers, I was saddened to hear that Grizzly Flats is no more. Something IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve held onto, since the beginning of time, is a tape of this broadcast. I recorded it on Ã‚Â¾Ã¢â‚¬? video at the time, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one of my favorite shows. When I took my old Ã‚Â¾Ã¢â‚¬? U-matic in to be serviced, my buddy behind the counter said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Who gave you this, Fred Flintstone?Ã¢â‚¬? But he managed to get it working again, and I was able to salvage the program.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m posting the entire 45 minute show (editing out commercials) a piece at a time. It may take a couple of days. But I want to share this great show with everybody; itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an excellent tribute to Ward and to Grizzly Flats.
