I’m not sure why I’m announcing this project to such fanfare, because I honestly don’t know how it’s going to turn out.
This holiday I stayed at my parents’ house in Chicago, going through the cathartic process of clearing out the old room (or as my friends refer to it as “The Shrine To Patrick J. Doody” – it has remained exactly the same since high school. You would think I had died.)
Well, between my father and I, we have scores of old VHS tapes. I swiped a bunch, scanning them to see if there was anything worthwhile on them. And there just might be. Certainly, plenty of local Chicago TV material. And while I can’t compete at all with a site like Fuzzy Memories, I plan on starting a YouTube page to house a few of these goodies. And of course, if anyone else feels like contributing, that would be wonderful.
However, things like this take time. But, I already made the logo, right? So, I might as well get to it!
And yes, that RCA with the corded remote was our family VCR from 1979. I still have it.
