- Welcome Debbie. I too am 58 and so we were there from the beginning and know how magical this time was for us. It was the next best thing to having Walt Disney in our own back yard.Cathy - cdsnyder51@...
- I just remember tuning it to watch him everyday. I remember Gene teaching me all about the film Fiddler on the Roof when it came out. And I also recall when The Sound of Music came out, how Gene devoted a show to this classic film. From the 2nd grade on, I believe, I rarely missed a Gene London program. Sadly, there are no shows for kids on TV like this for kids today. I even wonder if the children have the attention spans we had back in the day? It's all silly cartoons and video games these days.DebbieIn a message dated 8/12/2010 2:21:36 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time, cdsnyder51@... writes:Welcome Debbie.
