Toby expertly wiggled out of the commercial and let us go.
He later came over to our set and thanked us, giving us each a box of Malt-O-Meal.
Back in 1954, my cousin and I were to appear on the Callahan School of Music show, then on CKLW-TV, across the river in Windsor.
All the guys wore the popular black patent leather Piatto shoes from Thom Mc An (the long pointy toed ones that looked like low-cut cowboy boots), and most of the guys had the D. hair style (Duck's Ass), slicked down with Brylcreem.. How excited we were--knowing we were to appear on the Auntie Dee TV show; my friend Raynoma Ossman and me, Sonia Porter. Mary Ann Fitz Gerald, taught us a dance and costumed us as Raggedy Ann and Andy.

Cummings, that i don't remember who the band was, but I do remember who the warm-up act was. Cummings, for all the years I watched you as a child and reminding me as a young adult that Milky was cool!
As an adult, I've grown to appreciate that many of the things I had thought were beneath me as a young adult were really kind of cool, as anyone who eventually raises a family does. The big draw was, of course, the band and I can't even remember who they were. Our Cub Scout Troop (Warren-Southfield-Greenfield area) was on "Our Friend Harry" with Harry Jarkey in the late 1950s.
I remember they did a live commercial that day with cotton balls in bowls made to look like ice cream with Hershey's syrup over the top. The swing shift rotation was weekly, so most of the guys were home around lunch time for at least three weeks a month, and MANY were big time fans of Soupy Sales.
Turns out, the admiration was mutual, as Soupy was a cop wannabe!
