If you had been, you wouldn't have needed to ask.  I don't know if Channel
9 ever had the trust of viewers up that point.  They had to have been one
of the most truly amateurish staions in America.  Roller Derby and Uncle
Gus were the high points of their programming. I think there's someone on
this list who worked there in the late 60s/early 70s.  I'm sure he has many
tales to tell.
