When I was little I could turn on our black and white television set and watch what today would be called kid friendly programs. Today parents have a much tougher job making sure their kids only watch programs appropriate for children. I'll take you back to those "good old days."
Florence and I have a friendship that goes back many years. When I worked at KEZI we did many “Our Town” Specials from the Oregon Coast City and people there have always treated me as a local.
I think you're really going to like this weeks Rick Dancer TV Show. We are taking you back for a look at the past two years, highlighting some special moments and laughing through many others.

It’s seven in the morning, on a Sunday Morning and we are in Cottage Grove ready to shoot the intros and interviews for the June Rick Dancer TV show.
