and i remember the kern block...most of those buildings no longer exist..

instead of blowing up hudsons they should have blown up the rest of detroit and started from scratch....
I'm not a native Michigander, but I admit I'm a bit fascinated with the architectural history of Detroit. Here's a great site that documents the "ruins" of a number of famous buildings: http://www.forgottendetroit.com

This is a great thread!

Kelly and Company...I used to watch that show every morning. I even won the trivia question once, but I couldn't go to the station to claim my prize because I was only 13 and I was home from school sick that day! They showed a picture of a house and the question was "Who lives here?" The answer was The Brady Bunch!

I would be up for a meet at GLC in November as well.

How about November 15 at Great Lakes Crossing. Now we have to figure out what time and exactly where to meet.

We don't get WOMC up here.
Dick Purtan sounds familiar...Is Arthur Penhallow still alive? I remember him well from WRIF, the best rock station in Detroit.

I heard the song "I Guess You're Just What I Needed" by the Cars the other day, it reminded me they used to do it with their gang of characters, one was the voice of Popeye "You're Just the Matey I Needed"...Dick the Bruiser was another one of their characters on the morning crew...anyone old enough to remember those guys?

What in the heck does this mean?The only thing I didn't like was the toilet paper situation. I'm sure I'd manage just fine though

Dick Purtan is still alive and well. Arthur P is still DJing on wrif. He's got to be 100 years old by now. It seemed like he was old in the 70's. DH said he is part owner of WRIF amongst other things in the Detroit area. As for Dick the Bruiser (aka George Baier) , I don't know what ever happened to him but I do remember the songs 96 Beers .

FYI, I don't know how many Sanders stores are still around, but there is still one at Macomb Mall connected to the Sears. The last time we went there though it had just closed. I wanted to get DD a hot fudge cream puff just like I used to get when I was a kid. We used to go to the Sanders store in Lincoln Park back then - the one in the strip mall that was connected to Sears. Does anyone know if that one still exists? I haven't been over there in 20 years.
Nope. I get my kids pictures taken at that Sears and there is no Sanders there.

I have a lot of memories at that Sanders. I can't believe you grew up in Redford too. I was Redford Union class of 91.

I have been to the Sander's in Southland Mall, don't know if it's still there or not..
No Sanders in Southland!

Wikipedia (sorry, I don't usually use that site as a reference but I figured they couldn't screw up a birthdate..LOL..) has Art Penhallow born in 1944, so he is around 64...that's pretty old, but you're never too old to rock 'n' roll I guess.

Sanders Hot Fudge is the most wonderful food in the entire world, and I just found a jar in the back of my pantry!!

DH graduated from Catholic Central in 1972 and MSU in 1976.. I graduated from Trenton High School in 1976 and UMD in 1983.

Also visited the Rotunda Christmas decorations until it burned. Then there were some animatronic decorations at a band shell in Lincoln Park that we started going to . Hudson's 7th floor was the best at Christmas.

Oh my gosh... I haven't posted in months but you all have brought back so many great memories... I had to join in.

I was actually ON Kelly and Company when I was in high school and George Romney was a guest. He made a comment that women should "know their place" or some such nonsense and I was soooo angry that I shouted at him from the audience!! One of my finest television moments ... ok, my ONLY television moment but my Mom sure was proud!!

Monster week ROCKED!! Vernors is still the only thing I can drink when I'm sick to my stomach. I keep it on had at all times, just in case.

I'm up for a meet ... (Shout out to Midge... woman, it's about time we meet!) and the 15th is awesome for us. GLC is just a few miles away from me.

Thanks WardFamily for starting this thread... I must say... the whole KK saga was sickening but just wait, he'll be back... and I dare say, they will vote him into office... again.

I was on Kelly and Company, too! No one famous for us, but I did get pulled out of the audience pn stage (camera)for some fashion comments. They liked my long "romantic" hair (?), but didn't like my Dr. Scholl's sandals. John Kelly shook our hands after while we left, and he had the most amazing blue eyes..probably contacts...I like that you yelled, good for you.(it was live, wasn't it?)did you get thrown out?

Love this thread! You all are bringing back memories!! I loved Kelly & Company. My mom use to watch that talk show. I was little when it was on. Speaking of ice cream- does anyone remember Farrell's ice cream parlor?? I use to love that place as a kid. Only went maybe twice for birthday. As far as Vernors I only have Vernors if I'm getting a boston cooler. Made with Vernors and vanilla ice cream. Yum!!

OH yeah, Farrell's! What was it that they called the great big punch bowl that had about 30 scoops of ice cream and they brought it out on a stretcher? Was it the Zoo? Help me here.

Farrell's was a real treat. We lived about 20 miles away, so we didn't go very often.

I think I'll go get my Sander's hot fudge out and have a scoop...

I never did like Vernor's.. Faygo Rock 'n' Rye...I miss that. and Red Pop

Has anyone been over to BobLo and checked out the millionaire's houses? I was shocked when I learned of this years ago. I used to love taking that big white boat from Detroit over to Boblo. What memories.

Is the Roostertail still downtown? I am having all these memory flashbacks. I had dinner there once, and ate at the Top of The Ponch once, on my prom. is it still there, too?
