I know Ed Golick mentioned this on a Soupy Sales thread recently, but the exhibit opens this weekend at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Jim McFarlin wrote a great column about it in yesterday's MetroTimes ...

This should be a cool one!

It's in today's issue of the Monitor as well.

The exhibit features Bill Bonds, Soupy Sales, Emery King, Amyre Makupson, Bill Kennedy and John Kelly & Marilyn Turner.

I didn't grow up here, so I didn't see Soupy or Bill Kennedy, but I know all the others.

Heard Bill Bonds on "Detroit Today" this afternoon with Craig Fahle on WDET talking about this exhibit ... I tell you the old warhorse hasn't lost any of his edge, and he'd go back to the anchor desk in a heartbeat if someone would let him!

There aren't any Bill Bonds types in local news anymore ... honk if you beleive in BillY!

Related honk for Tim Kiska, interviewed by Craig before Billy as author of newly published A Newscast for the Masses: The History of Detroit Television News.

TOOT!

I gotta get my hands on that book ... sounds like more than a worthy companion to the Detroit Historical Museum exhibit.

HAWNK! No charisma on TV anymore, unless it is obviously forced. Billy asked the questions that we all wondered about and that's how he delivered the news. He wasn't afraid to show intelligence. Wow, there's a concept. Looks like I need to take a trip to YouTube and watch all of the old promos again.

Billy rocked with Warren Pierce today on the Frank Beckmann Show on WJR this morning! Too bad the Detroit News couldn't devote more space to Tim Kiska's book and the DHM exhibit in today's paper ...

Wow. Amyre Makupson was in-studio for almost a full hour with John McCollough in for Frank Beckmann today on WJR. The director of the Detroit Historical Museum was on as well, talking about the exhibit. Lots of great reminiscing ... wonder if they'll podcast some of that good radio.
