Ah, yes, Freddy Freihofer, which was on just before Howdy Doody every day.  I don't know if 
I remember Uncle Jim Fisk.  In the four years that I lived in the Albany area, they went 
through quite a few hosts -- Ralph Kana, Ed Joyce, Bud Mason, and at least one more.  
Maybe that was Uncle Jim Fiske, but I don't think I was watching much by then because 
Howdy Doody wasn't there any more.

I suppose it's possible that Freihofers Bakery had something to do with it, but I do think that 
Wonder Bread and Hostess Cupcakes weren't being sold in the Albany area at the time.
