Growing up, the annual Cerebral Palsy Telethon on WBAY was required viewing for this kid. It was a chance to see some TV stars out of their element, but as shown here, it also featured local talent. I know I missed seeing these guys at 3:30 am on a Sunday morning! Sure, it wasn't a great time slot to showcase your efforts in an era when VCRs didn't exist in the home; families and friends had no other choice but to rise early to see them perform. But they were on TV, when that was a big deal. I'm sure they were the talk of St. Pat's and enjoyed some celebrity there.
