WTAE's sense of humor

There is nothing to add to this other than to say that whoever is pulling video from the WTAE archives must have a sense of humor. If they could only find me as a guest on Bowling for Dollars. They also ought to find the clip of the PA lottery on April 24, 1980, the day the fix was in.

So does Paul Long!

Did they sing, "You're the best hometown I know?" Technically, one only has one hometown, or knows only one. But I don't deconstruct 1970s local television jingles for a living.

How about a contest to ID everyone in the clip? Myron, Kent Tekulve, Kathy Milton, Don, Joe, Paul, Sally--for starters.

I caught Tekulve... I was looking for Ed Ott, but I don't think he is in there.

In 2006, the Game Show Network did a one hour 13 episode series called "Anything to Win". It covered subjects from old-school poker players like Amarillo Slim to DeLorean, Tanya Harding, Bobby Fischer and Arnold. Naturally, there was a episode on the PA Lottery fix. Pretty good, lots of archival footage, including behind the scenes footage. They do not show the drawing uneditted. It repeats late on Sunday. Not sure when the PA lottery episode will be shown again.
