During the 60's and 70's Bob Gordon was a very popular TV host on Channel 12 out of Winston Salem, NC. Over the years the titles and formats of his shows changed but his popularity never did.
Some examples of his shows would be in 1962 his show was Bob Gordon's Cartoon Corner, weekdays at 5:05 p.m. In 1963 it was the Bob Gordon Show weekday afternoons. February 1964 his show moved to weekday mornings at 9:00 a.m. where it remained until the fall of 1966. Bob moved to the weekends that year. During football season the show aired as Bob Gordon's Popcorn Theater and during baseball season the show aired on Sunday afternoons as Bob Gordon's Sunday Theater. By 1970 the show was known as Bob Gordon's Theater no matter which day it aired.
One of my most favorite features on the show during the 60's was the Republic Serials that Bob aired one chapter at a time on his show. I was always very appreciative of the background information that Bob always shared about these and all his other shows. It was very evident that he was also a big fan of the features that he aired on his show.
