Cleveland Memories July 2, 2010

Posted by Donna in Non-Fiction.


If you grew up in Cleveland during the 60s, 70s, or 80s, you have to recognize the name Big Chuck. His book, Big Chuck! : My Favorite Stories from 47 Years on Cleveland TV by Chuck Schodowski with Tom Feran is a delicious, thoroughly entertaining and easy-to-read memoir. Big Chuck shares hundreds of hilarious stories about his work on and behind the scenes of Cleveland television especially at Channel 8(now known as Fox 8 News). He has been a writer of skits for Ernie “Ghoulardi” Anderson and the Ghoulardi Show, a co-host with Bob “Hoolihan” Wells and “Lil” John Rinaldi and a producer and director. The new paperback edition is even more of a treat to read since he added another chapter to include some other memorable stories that were not in the original hardcover edition. The photographs throughout the book are also a treat to savor and enjoy. Delightful and amusing, this book should not be missed by Cleveland fans or any fan interested in the world of television.
This book was provided to our library for review by the publisher.

Happy Reading!  Donna
