The two things I remember about Candlepins for Cash....
1.) How the contestants would say hello to "All the guys at GE in Lynn!
2.) If a guy knocked down 8 pins...he got EIGHT BUCKS! WOW! Not
exactly a Big Budget show!
OK...3 Things...3.) Eddie Andleman would razz Bob Gamere on the nightly
newscast for being the 'Candlepin King'... Supposedly morale at
"Newsroom 7" was pretty bad...having a Candlepin show as a lead in...
Supposedly "C F C" did (surprisingly) well ratings-wise. I know my
grandmother loved it...and sent in postcards with all her
Speaking of Bob Gamere.... Whatever happenned to his career?
Also, does anyone remember Barbara Borin?
I think this was a period where everyone DID indeed watch Channel 7's
Also, remember when Chuck Scarborough was there before he went to NBC(?)
. He was one of the few credible anchors they had. (We won't talk
about Brad Holbrook! Actually a NICE GUY...with even nicer hair...but
not a real 'authoritative' delivery on the air...)
