CLEVELAND - From perfect pitch to a perfect pitcher, and from the ups and downs of the roller coasters of Geauga Lake to the low down on a softball drop, the second edition of "Video Vault 5," presented by 650-GOLD, looks back at some Cleveland TV memories.
The 30-minute television program takes some of the best moments from the online version here, and adds in a few new TV clips. As always, we close with a classic Eyewitness Newsreel.
Rocco Scotti sings the national anthem, a different angle to Len Barker's perfect game, and an 85-year-old roller coaster enthusiast are some people you'll get to see again.
Gas prices spiking to 77 cents a gallon (wouldn't that be nice now?), a reporter dressed as a pilgrim, along with some stories behind the scenes on Cleveland live shots, plus some of the stories behind the stories are shared by Leon Bibb and yours truly.
Plus, there are some old WEWS friends who make a TV encore; Gib Shanley, Jeff Maynor, Ted Henry, Jenny Crimm, Jan Jones and Fred Griffith make that list.
Fred shows his serious side interviewing former labor leader Jimmy Hoffa, but Fred also deals with an out-of-control kangaroo and some faulty furniture.
After this, our second show of the season, there are two more shows to come in this year's series. Look for the next edition of "Video Vault 5" in late August.
