Great show.  If you didn't see it and can get the Sunday broadcast, you
should do so.

The thing that I liked is that they didn't only focus on the early years.
They talked about the whole history of the station.  Lots of great clips
from the 70's and 80's.  Nice to see Bob Elliott again.

They interviewed a lot of former stations stars.  Former anchor Richard Rose
was interviewed in the studio while wearing a t-shirt.  He certainly didn't
dress for the interview.  I got the impression he was still in Maine.  Does
anyone know what he's doing?

The biggest disappointment was the interview with Jan Fox.  In the 80's, she
made in worthwhile to watch the Channel 6 news even if you turned the sound
down.  She has not aged well, despite apparently getting some surgical help.

Interesting that Channel 6 has only had three weeknight sports anchors in
its history.  Don McWilliams who was there from the beginning until 1977, a
guy named Scott Wahle who was there for two years, and Bruce Glasier who has
had the job ever since.

They have also only had 5 weather people.  The current guy Joe Cupo has been
there since 1979.
