Seedlings … and local Morning TV Shows.

WDIO-WIRT was good enough to do this morning show interview with a couple of organizers for this event that I am helping with on Saturday. We’re giving out seedlings for dads, among other things. That’s why I mention it. The event itself is called “MN Father’s Forever” and it is designed to help promote connections between dads and their kids, especially for dads who have been around the block a few times, so to speak. Sometimes dads get so far behind on child support or they have trouble navigating the custody and family court system and they just give up. So we’re working with those guys, too. We want to help them get re-connected. I wrote some details for the event here on our Facebook event page.

Anyway, in the interest of all this fun we’ve been having with local history lately I was going to post a video or a reference to remember the local morning TV show that was done in Duluth in the 80s and maybe early 90s but I can’t remember it for the life of me. The host was “Dottie” something or other. I think that Cassie Limpert did a good job with this interview, and I’m glad that they did it. But there was a time when stations had 30 or 60 minute shows every day with opportunities to showcase local arts, culture and happenings. When the hosts were doing hot topics it was local, not the ladies of “The View” dishing about Tiger Woods or “Dancing with the Stars.”

But there I go being nostalgic again … anyway if anyone has any memories of videos I bet they’d be great to watch. And I’ll see some of you dads out there on Saturday.
