Early in this thread, someone mentioned 'Scoop O'Brien.'
The guy who played him was a WKY announcer named Chris Daniels

I remember he'd be on before, during and after Superman and announce that
Crusader Rabbit was next.

I remember Montgomery Wards and the elevator operators! That was fun. Anna
Maude's was just west of it.

Walking downtown was remarkable. I remember this guy acting like he was
blind. I put a nickle in his cup and he chased me down to give me a pencil. I
was scared to death!

There were a lot of transients and derelicts on the streets at that time.

That was on N. Hudson @ 4th. It was always a mess.

I'll never forget taking the elevator in John A. Brown's and coming out where
the hair salon was. Every time I smell a permanent solution I get a flash back.

My grandmother worked for Hightower's downtown. She was the assistant to Mr. Hightower.

My grandfather worked at Gibson's, but not the one downtown. It was up on NW Highway if memory serves.

And, that Sound Warehouse that was on 39th and MacArthur started out on 10th and MacArthur. I helped move that store to the 39th location and then went to work at the corporate headquarters (Bromo Distributors)

Was Crusader Rabbit hosted by Tom Paxton? Does anyone remember Tom Paxton? I know he hosted a kids' show after school in the '60's but not sure what it had - maybe the Three Stooges or Huckleberry Hound? What happened to him?

I have very found memories growing up a block away from the intersection of 63rd street and N.W. Highway. They had a TG&Y store that I spent a lot of time in, and there was a Kimberlings grocery store in that same center I think.
Kimberlings had the most killer-good thumbprint cookies, baked right there, and they were huge by today's standards and very reasonably priced.

Larsen Music was also completely to-die-for back then, and of course, we all made the trek to Driver Music in Bethany for some really big thrills. There was also, in later years, a Rock World music store a few miles away. I still have drum heads with their logo, which is very sad, since it means I haven't changed drum heads in about 25 years. (Drummers out there are now cringing in disbelief!)

Huckleberry Hound started around 1959. I don't know if Tom Paxton was Scoop
O'Brien or not. I think somebody said who he was. Maybe that's what Tom Paxton
did, that is, host the Three Stooges, Crusader Rabbit and Huckleberry Hound.

The more I think of it the more I think you're right.

At any rate, Tom Paxton had a noon time show before Danny's Day. John Spivey
was the organist. I played a lot of gigs with John. Ken Wright was another
organist who would play while the tech crew was trying to figure out what
went wrong. Hilarious!

I don't know what else TP did.

The 10th Street comment was in reference to a Sound Warehouse post.

I know there were still two Gibsons store in Lawton until the one on Cache Road closed for the redevelopment there. The last time that I was in Lawton (a few years ago) it looked like the Gore Blvd. store was still open and there is one open in Kerrville, Texas.

Penn Square was enclosed in the early to mid 80's.

The Arts Festival used to be held at the park in front of the Civic Center. I was
there when it debuted in 1967. The Festival was there until the late 70's. That's
when it moved to Hudson and the Myriad Park area.

Some more recent-ish memories:


Time Out! for Burgers. A decent hamburger restaurant with local flavor. Area schools would have sponsored nights, during which TO would donate 15% of that evening's take (was that before or after tax?).
The gray fleckstone-painted CRT monitors in the 4Warn Storm Center. I wonder who did that? I hope it was someone at the station.
The ever-changing logos for KOCO in the 1990s, while 4 and 9 stayed the course with their relatively unerring graphics.
When the dam(n) road at Lake Hefner was two ways with no shoulder. Actually, I understand that it used to be one way (like today) before this; when?
The Lake Hefner water tower with its FAA paint scheme. Lake Draper's retains this scheme, for those of you who wish to reminisce.
The television stations would sign off at night into the early 90s, even when overnight programming was offered by the big three networks.
Before the Thunder...we had the Cavalry! I have an old yearbook with a great ad of a TV production company touting their then-recent commercial featuring Eleanor Kamber and Al Eschbach.

Speaking of the dam road. Does anybody remember the 'ditch' where the
road took a sudden drop for about 50 yards and then went back up? It was on
the east side of the lake. I used to take my MG or the Renault at about 50 mph
and see if I could fly to the bottom without touching the dip. Never got more
than 10 feet.

Does anybody remember the KOCO billboard in the early 60's? It had a cup
of hot chocolate and said KOCO (coco get it?)

I slept through a Cavalry game once. I'm not a basketdull fan. I've tried
to like it but it doesn't compute. It's sooooo slow.

OUCH! You were probably going 60mph or better.

I say I would go 50mph. It was more like 35 but like you I'd go faster every

That '56 looked a lot like the 1955 Chevy used in the movies "American Graffiti" and "Two Lane Blacktop". I remember unintentionally leaving it parked directly in front of the doors of the movie theater where American Graffiti had its first showing in OKC. When I came out of the theater there was a crowd of people standing around my car discussing whether or not it was a movie prop. I was running open headers at that time and when I started the car the loud exhaust noise and flames really frightened a bunch of the people looking at it.

I wonder what happened to that car. Sometimes I wish I had another “shoebox” to play with, even though the new cars (like the Corvette ZR1) are much, much better.

Never did because they didn't do bicycles. I really wanted dual exhaust on my
Cutlass but the guy with the money, dad, wouldn't hear of it. I bought a Cherry

Yep, my aunt (from Lawton) found out about it one night coming back from a wrestling tournament in Cashion on 74. Needless to say we thought it was fun.

It had a 351(C)-HO with a C6 automatic. In the owners manual the minimum recommended octane was 103 for the H.O., the 351 Boss had a 106 octane rating. I used to use premium leaded from the Fill-Ups station at 39th & Meridian (where the Shell station is now) when premium was around $1.25 a gallon, regular was around 0.75 at the time. It would still ping with a pint of Moroso Octane Booster, it loved it when I would put a quart in there. I spent most of my pay on gas, at 8mpg it didn't go very far while making 3.35 an hour and going to school....but it was fast :evilsmile

I'll never forget the first time...The shoe shiner put on the thick Cordovan and Black wax then poured alcohol on my shoes and struck a match to them. I thought he was "Crazy" and I started yelling . He very calmly had the quick fire out and said "Do you want them to Shine or NOT"? he said all he was doing was melting the wax evenly....Never did I question him again......Boy, those were the days...Starched wheat jeans, Madras Shirt "Shiny" shoes.....Couldn't afford a date after that though...All my money was gone....

I just discovered this site today and....WOW.

While born in Lawton back in '63, I grew up in OKC and reading these posts really brought back some memories. Attended Lafayette Elementary and lived just off 44th & Western before we moved just a few blocks behind Mayfair while in the first grade. From the 2d grade (Fairview and Highland West) on we lived near 89th & Penn (71-77) and then 119th & Penn (77-82). I joined the Air Force after graduating from Moore High and except for a few trips through the city to visit relatives I've been away ever since.

Needless to say, every time I travel up there (I live in Addison, TX...N. Dallas) it's like a different place.

I remember.........
People: Foreman Scotty, Ho-Ho, Danny Williams, Allen Merrill, Ken(?) Schwartz(SW Ford, was killed in an airliner crash here in DFW, 1985), Linda Soundtrack, Gov. David Hall (met him once), Bill Hare (met him once while touring Channel 9), Count Gregore.

Places: Shotgun Sam's, Crystal's Pizza (worked there for three days, just not my line...we have one over in Irving, TX but it's starting to look pretty ratty), Stars and Stripes Park, Firefighter's Hall of Fame, the OKC zoo, The Natural History Museum, 14 Flags Drive-in, The Winchester Drive-In, TG&Y (worked at the stores at 44th & Western and then 59th & May before going into the military), Crossroads Mall (75-82...before it went down-hill), Shepard Mall (saw King-Kong there in '76), Sears (44th and Western...can still smell the pop corn), Arlen's (right across the street from Sears, I think it's a Target or something now), Shepler's, Camp Kickapoo (Scout Camp), Shakey's Pizza (59th & Western) lunch there and then over to the Park Terrace Theater for a Godzilla flick), the Continental Theater (saw the original "Rocky" there), Kip's Big Boy (59th & Western), Otasco (had a "Flying-O" bike, wore out the Christmas catalog every year, never did get that lime green transistor radio), the YMCA over by US Grant (noticed the campus was being re-built and the cannon was missing), and a lot more....

Last time I was there I found that the old 7-Eleven was a cleaners or something. Back in the 70's I could look down the street from the upstairs TV room and see the red-green-white neon lights of the "old-school" sign, now it's gone.

Anyway, sorry for the dis-jointed rant but it was just too cool to see that so many people remember so much of what was the OKC I remember (ie. the mummy at the Fairgrounds, the National Finals Rodeo, Molly Murphy's (I live just down the street from the Magic Time Machine, always make sure to go before I get there). Just had to vent...Thanks and Best Wishes to all.

I still have what's left of a Dick Tracey snub nose. My daughter threw it at a spider, and broke the cylinder.:kicking: I carried that thing to kindergarten in the shoulder holster. Imagine doing that now. Mattel made good stuff back then.
