Don't Touch That Dial: Clear-Ridge Historical Society Sets Program on TV

The Clear-Ridge Historical Society will look back at the early
years of television at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 28 at the Clearing Branch Library, 6423 West 63rd Place.

Featured speaker Larry Bergnach will lead an interactive variety show highlighting such television shows as Howdy Doody, Walt Disney, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, I Love Lucy, the Honeymooners, Gunsmoke and many more.

According to CRHS President Rob Bitunjac, Bergnach will use humor, stories, songs and audience participation to take everyone on a trip down memory lane.

Bergnach has been on television as a humorist and a guest several times on WGN Radio with Rick Kogan of the Chicago Tribune.

The "Golden Age of Television" event brings back pleasant
memories when we had only four channels, and Milton Berle was the number one program, Bitunjac added.
