Re: Fred Rogers archival interviews
- I literally ran into this man when I lived in Pittsburgh. I was walking on the sidewalk downtown and when I rounded the corner, I walked into him. I said excuse me and then I noticed who he was. His style of TV is gone for good I'm afraid. His programs were too clean and wholesome for today's entertainment industry.

- What a great story, Ken! You were lucky that day!!I had already graduated from high school when Fred Rogers' show launched,but I watched it whenever I could during my college years. I just loved howhe talked to kids, and because I was headed to teaching elementaryschool, it seemed like a good way to rest up between classes... watching atelevision show that honored children.Here's a bit of trivia, for those who are wondering...Fred McFeely Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003) wasMister Rogers' Neighborhood, in production from 1968 to 2001.On May 26, 2010, at 2:26 PM, Ken wrote:
