American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz from the History Channel are looking to come back to Central New York. Do you have any priceless collections or antiques you're willing to part with? Don't know what you have? Even better.

With Halloween almost here, I thought it would be fun to recall my favorite scary TV shows. I would put the 1970s show, "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" right up there at the top of the list. And, I have a family connection to the show.
It's fun to look back at what we were watching on TV way back when. Remember the pop music show, "Solid Gold" with weekly rock 'n roll guests and the ever-popular "Solid Gold Dancers"? Let's reminisce.
One of Utica's shining stars of the 1950s and 60s was the late Annette Funicello. We remember Annette's career starring in all those beach movies, a singer with hit records, and one of the original "Mouseketeers." On this day in 1955, "The Mickey Mouse Club" featuring 12-year old Annette debuted on TV.
I watch all those psychic medium shows, and now there's a new one on Sunday nights at 10 on TLC called, "Angels Among Us". What's interesting is that the show takes place in New York State with many of the guests who get readings from upstate New York.
One of my favorite TV spy shows of the day was "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." which debuted on NBC TV on this day in 1964. With All of the Bond films and other spy movies of the 60s, TV shows started to pick up on the theme. What made this show so cool was the suave duo who starred, and the tongue-in-cheek clever dialogue.
