Comments: You reminded me of an old joke and I apologize in advance for it. Did you hear about the urban cowboy with his head stuck in the garbage can? He was (sing along now) "lookin' for love in all the wrong places".

That's a clean-up of a dirty joke that was going around in the early 80s.

Attention, Baby Boomers! Your past is coming to revisit you!

If one of the highlights of your childhood was a visit to the KTUL-TV, Channel 8 studios to be on the “Mr. Zing & Tuffy Show”, there’s a treat in store for you. “Leafy Bark”, the talking tree from the late 60’s show, has found a new home at the Tulsa Historical Society. Thursday, August 10, Leafy Bark will move to his new residence after 30 years of residing in Broken Arrow.

Following the seven-year run of “Mr. Zing & Tuffy”, Leafy Bark found himself on the auction block. But, not to fear. Leafy found a wonderful home with Shari and Bill Casper - continuing to entertain children in Shari Casper’s preschool. Daily, Leafy would awe 3 and 4 year olds as he towered over their desks, talking and encouraging them (with the help of Shari). He probably even sang that old familiar song from the show “Don’t Leave the Yard Without Telling Mother!”

Recently, as Shari looked to retire, she wanted Leafy to have a good home. She contacted KTUL-TV, who asked Tuffy, aka Homer Wayne Johnson, to assist her in this effort. Tuffy, delighted to know his old friend was still in the “entertainment” business, contacted Mike Ransom, webmeister for tulsatvmemories.com. Mike suggested the Tulsa Historical Society as the perfect home for Leafy. There was a resounding “yes” from THS to making the newly renovated and expanded facility at 2445 S. Peoria Leafy’s new home.

Thursday, August 10, at 9 a.m. Leafy will leave the Caspers’ home in Broken Arrow, after Bill Casper removes an entire wall to make room for Leafy to move through the garage. He will travel quickly, in a special van, to the Tulsa Historical Society.

Leafy would like to invite all his friends to welcome him to his new home - he should be arriving at the Tulsa Historical Society about 10 a.m.

Be on hand to give him a warm welcome!

Topic: Bartender
: dcbatsunflower.com
Comments: "Hey Bartender" was written by Terry Dossie, according to Warner Bros. licensing page. They list the Blues Brothers and someone named Johnny Lee as recording it in the 80s, but certainly there must be an older version somewhere.

Johnny Lee was "lookin' for love in all the wrong places" at Gilley's in "Urban Cowboy".

That's where we also saw Charlie Daniels perform "The Devil Went Down to Georgia". Charlie spent some of his early career days in Tulsa. Check out the "Thirty-Nine Questions for Charlie Daniels Upon Hearing 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia' for the First Time in 25 Years" at the link.

Comments: I don't recall "Hey, Bartender" being in the movie, but it WAS the opening cut (after the intro) on the first Blues Brothers album, "Briefcase Full Of Blues".

Topic: Hey, (Mister) Bartender
: Hank Thompson's composition was "Six Pack to Go," released in the early 60s, I think. The lyrics start, "Hey, Mister Bartender, please don't be so slow...I got time for one more round and a six pack to go..."

The chorus of the great blues song, unrelated except in sentiment, goes, if memory serves, "Hey, Bartender, pour one, pour two, pour three more glasses of beer."

It has been several hours since the last time The Blues Brothers movie last ran on AMC, but I think that was part of the soundtrack with vocals by Belushi and Ackroyd.

So both the sage of Brazos Valley and Floyd Dixon can lay claim to the call to the beertender.

Topic: St. Michael's Alley
: ginny[dot]moss[at]verizon[dot]com
Comments: In response to Jeff H (in GB 206) - "Still in the food category: I have a menu from St. Michael's Alley (circa 1965) very similar to the one on display at the restaurant (1960). Mine has a limited food section. Does any one know if they served food from the start? The menu on display only shows the coffees and teas."

I don't have a menu, but St. Michael's was my first "real job" the summer I graduated from Edison (1960). The menu had only the many espressos and home made German chocolate, cheesecake, and a date/nut torte. Soon, Cy put in draught beer - served in tall Pilsner glasses. The "olive in the beer" idea came from a lounge at the Crystal Bowling Alley, where we went on occasion. Then he added the hot pastrami, Swiss cheese, and peppered beef sandwiches; the pièce de ré•sis•tance was a standing rib roast sandwich – served at the tables from a cart, au jus. That was the extent of the menu when I left St. Michael's to go to work at Shell Oil in July, 1962.

I noticed in a blog by Joel Burkhart, he referred to Cy as "Ty" Kelly. His full name was James Sanford Kelly, nicknamed "Cy" (pronounced Ky) by his older brother when he was a baby. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it stuck.

When Cy sold the coffeehouse, he assisted Bill McLaughlin build a venture called "The Forge" in Utica Square.

I left Tulsa for about 15 years in 1965, so I don't know what happened to that. Anyone?

Topic: Pennington's Black Bottom Pie
: My husband (Central class of '66) is going thru some rough health problems (Vietnam vet), so I have been trying to think of some things from his youth that may help his spirits. He is 14 years older than I, so I don't recall some things he speaks of even though, I too, grew up in Tulsa. So I began to think maybe I could try to find recipes of some of our T-Town favorites to possibly create a menu (for our 20th anniversary next week) of comfort foods, and invite some friends who, without a doubt, would be familiar with, to name a couple, Jamil's cabbage rolls, and PENNINGTON'S BLACKBOTTOM PIE!!!

I have really enjoyed your site, loved the memory recalls, and I so appreciate the PBBP recipe! Wish me luck.

Carlos, P Kent Doll and myself were the trio that shot/edited OK football on TK-76's for (at least) 2 seasons. Many fond memories.

And for the record, when Carlos was driving, we never were involved in a traffic altercation of any sort. But I never had any problem reading the license plate of the car in front of us.

Unless we were so close that the hood of the van obscured my view.

Comments: Mike, I just wanted you guys to know what a great website you have, and the page devoted to my dad's business, SEVCO. He would have really enjoyed it! I grew up working there, and have to say that to be a part of Tulsa television was quite an honor.

As the oldest son and main inheritor of most all the SEVCO memorabilia, that for others to enjoy commercials from the eighties is a kick! I have a copy of every SEVCO commercial from 1974 on (including radio jingles from the 1960s) and would be glad to share them. I'll share copies of the SEVCO commercials for the Ed Greer Tape Center commercials that Gailard Sartain used to do; they were pretty funny, too! (Remember 1417 E. 11-teenth?)

Many pictures of Joe Pierre and the SEVCO family can be found at http://photos.yahoo.com/josephpierre@sbcglobal.net.

Thanks for the memories, guys, and hi to Ed Colton!

I saw the thread about his accent and I wanted to let people know that he disguised his accent because he was a Holocaust survivor. Joe was a young boy in Poland when the Russians invaded and put him and his mother in the camps. But it was his voice on all of the commercials.

PS: The black ring that I had around my eye was from an allergic reaction to the dye on the eye piece and I only wrecked three news cars while working with Darrell Barton in OKC. Twice the news cars were parked and someone ran into them and one I took the mirror off while driving through a gate. Just setting the record straight.

Comments: RIDESHY is mentioned in your Tulsa Pop Culture section.

RIDESHY wasn't a place as much as it was a system. As indicated, it was the telephone number of a very big prostitution operation in the 1970s. The nonsensical moniker was easy to remember and didn't need to be written down or looked up in an address book. It was in the Riverside exchange (RI 3-ESHY) and therefore was portable, with an order through the phone company, from the Arkansas River east to maybe Lewis; close to Jenks to about 21st Street. It was the incoming Customer Service line.

But no one ever went to RIDESHY, including most of the employees. If you were a regular customer, or referred by one, you called RIDESHY and left a message on a recorder. RIDESHY would call you back, unless they thought you were trouble, and take your "order". They then called to dispatch the appropriate Representative to come to you.

Lots of "orders" came from hotels. Some of the Customer Service Representatives worked out of their own house or apartment. Once the service was arranged, the customer was directed to the employee's residence where the order was filled. So to speak.

At times, RIDESHY rented apartments, typically in the Riverside area, but they could be anywhere. Customers, after calling the RI 3 number, would be directed to one of the organization's apartments.

The only thing that actually existed at the RIDESHY telephone address were telephones, a dispatcher, and a manager. If the police took down one of the apartments, or an employee's home, all we got was a couple of Customer Service Reps and a couple of customers. The organization stayed intact and only a small piece of the business was impacted. Services were still be rendered elsewhere while the handful of suspects were being booked.

They managed their risk very well. If the telephone location was raided, it was back up in business within hours and the same location or within a business day or two if they needed to move.

Those people are all gone now, but I'd bet someone is doing the same thing with BlackBerries today.

Thanks, David. I added your comments to the RIDESHY/May Rooms page.

Her shop was a children's clothing store where I spent many summers helping her stock shelves and gift wrap! I lived, at that time, with my parents in New Mexico and would go to Tulsa in the summer on the train to be with her. She was a wonderful Irish lady who died in New Mexico in 1952. Thanks.

Or I'd again be operating "Leafy Bark" on Mr. Zing and Tuffy. Or offering forced laughter at Jack Morris' corny jokes, while operating camera for the news segment.

Maybe you did activate the Wayback Machine after all. Hurst and Tuffy are talking with some fine folks who have taken care of Leafy Bark all these years, and as you can see, he is in good health, though minus his original luxuriant foliage. More to come.

: I would have sworn I had asked previously whether anyone ever heard where Harry Sedgewick went after a rather uneventful stay at KOTV years ago.

I looked through the archives and found nothing so maybe I didn't ever bring him up.

It was my understanding that he came to 6 from a major station in Cincinnati and was going through a sticky divorce there. He had a big city voice and carried himself well; in other words, a class person. Having worked in the clothing business, I took note of his clothes, which were top quality. He was also the only person I knew who wore a fedora.

He gained a slight nod from management for his witty repartee which he offered as he showed FAX pictures that he selected from the wire service. He did this on "Sun-Up" when I hosted it.

I would see him sometimes walking the streets downtown, alone and deep in thought.

And then one day he was.....gone...

So, now Harry Sedgewick has been mentioned.

Topic: Dust Bowl
: gperry5@cox.net
Comments: I was first at the Dust Bowl on 15th St in late 1966. I believe that it had been operational for at least a year before that.

I spent the summer of '67, my senior year, doing the floors every week. I was paid enough to rent a bucket and mop, buy the Spic & Span, and have a few bucks left over.

I also got in free while I was doing the floor. I spent every Friday and Saturday night there. When I left for college I gave up the job (don't remember to whom), but it was still going at that time, about August of 1967.

The performers were mostly from a different planet and I have few memories of them. The exceptions would be the house band, and Dudley Murphy. Even after hearing their sets so many times, they were always entertaining to me.

There was a regular group in the audience, while I was going, which included Joe Allen, Joe Colpitts, Mike Rawlins, David Heckle, a blond girl from Brookside named Kristy, a girl with long brown hair named Shelly, Sandy Courter, Carl and Larry Gregory and some others I remember even less well than these. Most of us were underage, which I believe is why Bob never pursued a liquor license.

For me, the Dust Bowl was a unique experience and made a lasting impression on me and my life.

I added this note to the Dust Bowl section of the Tulsa Coffee Houses of the Past page.

: If Miss Puerto Rico won the Miss Universe contest last night and Miss USA came in 4th and Puerto Rico also participates in the Miss USA contest, but didn't win AND that the Universe contest was in the USA - do ya smell a "fix". Or are you as confused as I am? I still can't figger out this thang about whirled peas that them girls are so worried about!

I just remember when the Miss America contest still was a big Saturday night draw on TV in early September back when I was an undergrad at TU in the 70's, usually opposite the Bama/somebody- college football night game. There were fights over the TV clicker at John Mabee Hall's main TV on what to watch. Now nobody gives a rodents' whatever on them BEAUTY contest shows.

If Doctors Woodward and Hillis remember, KOTV carried the tape-delayed MRS. AMERICA pageant for several years. One reason why was that somebody in Corinthian TV corporate had a wife who was a contestant one year.

The title of "Miss Universe" has always seemed a bit smug. "Twilight Zone" writer Richard Matheson wrote a story in 1955 called "Miss Stardust" in which this presumption was challenged by an alien, described as looking like a vacuum cleaner with a head of cabbage on top, wearing a jacket. It was made into an "Amazing Stories" episode in 1987 with "Weird" Al Yankovic as the Cabbage Man.

As the commercial says: "Priceless!"

I would gladly enter the note but having no resource to "Legal" these days, I will await a public input from the "players."

Wouldn't want any litigation. Also, I expect Mr. Irvin would be the major ego in play, so perhaps just leaving it to the imagination is best for now at least.

It is a great note.

Wirt Cain checked in, and Teresa Girdner sent a photo from "The John Chick Show". We got another "Beef Baloney" update. The Metro Diner will soon be gone from its near-TU location. Ike's Chili and Coney Island(er) came up again.

We saw a photo of Edwin and the former Mrs. Fincher. Requests were made for new pages about the Edge of Insanity (EOI) radio network, and Tulsa bars and restaurants.
