Capital City Notes & Gossip, plus Tales from Library Land
oooooh, creepy--Listen to the "Sideviews on the News with Jack Clements captures the Richmond police questioning a drunk person"--The John Wayne sounding cop makes a comment to the African American cab driver-- "He's drunk, boy."(I'm probably being hyper-sensitive, it just kindof gave me the eeks when he called the guy "boy." )On a tangent, didn't Alden Aaroe have some kind of duck as a sidekick in the 70's? (Donald Duck ripoff?)I seem to remember that. It would make sense, seeing that they had a "Capitol Squirrell" way back when.The thing I remember the most about WRVA was that at Christmastime, they'd play that instrumental version of "Sleighride" that had the horses clip-clopping hooves, and the screechywhinny of the horse (a trumpet or some other brass instrument)
Good memory, V.: Millard the Mallard was a morning show sidekick. What I remember is an early understanding of a playlist. Dad played WRVA in their room nice and loud so he could hear it while he shaved and got dressed. I couldn't quite hear it until I opened my door. I remember hearing "Rhinestone Cowboy" morning after morning at about the time I was ready to go downstairs for breakfast.
Are you scarred from that experience? ;)
