digital friendly format. I was on the show in 1959 or 60. I really
don't remember much ( I was only 4 yrs old) except that he had someone
on there that made homemade pretzels. I got to sit on Genes lap,( I
had a huge crush on him) and he helped me make my pretzel.
I also remember being crushed when the episode aired in B&W cause my
dress was such a pretty pink.
