Viewer Comments

The noonbreak hostess name is Lee Phillip - Her husband - Bill Bell is creator of the soap opera Bold & the Beautiful for anyone who cares.

First: Is John Coughlin the son or brother of Dick Coughlin, who was the host of Chicago's Breakfast with Bugs Bunny show on WGN before Ray Rayner took his place as host?

Second: Why didn't Svengoolie (Son of) wish a farewell to Ray Rayner?

No Son of Svengoolie you say? Perhaps because 32 was 9's direct rival back in that day.

Why was Donohue filmed on the Bozo set? And is the Noonbreak host Lee Phillip?

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
