Manosky’s memories

Reading Time: 2 minutes

During the late 1960s at Channel 2, we were fortunate to have Connie White and his camera to chronicle the backstage workings and the people who made those great shows. Here are a few that I was fortunate to be in.

Left to right: Christopher Sarson and Bob Manosky, on camera, in Studio A.

This shows Bob Manosky giving, I think Frank Lane, a look after a bumpy dolly-in.

This is Bob Manosky in limbo driving the Chapman Crane in Studio.

Bob Manosky with “Two Ton” Tony Galento Heavyweight Contender at a table in 1966 or 1967.

These three photos show Bob Manosky wearing a grass skirt selling a tropical vacation on Auction 1966 or 1967.

The attached is a photo I took on a Friday at sunset from the scene dock. It shows the Greyhound mobile unit in in ’66 or ’67.

    Hey Bob! Hi from Fred Barzyk. Wow, so good to hear from you. I still remember your design for the Whats Happening Mr. Silver button. It was a crazy time. Later I ran in to you when you were working a mobil unit company with Dudley. Where are you now and what are you doing? Fred

      Hi Fred, I’m so happy that you answered my message. I bought HDTV equipment in anticipation of producing a Fox syndicated show called Rock and Roll Mysteries. Then I decided that Rock and Roll had no future and I cancelled the project. After Dudley’s deal went bankrupt I became a partner over in the Chapel Street, Newton complex and produced hundreds of programs. Right now, I’m doing pop art…30’x50′ pieces. I have one on exhibition at The James Dean Gallery in JD hometown and final resting place, Fairmount Indiana.
      Hope you are well.

      Best regards,

      Bob Manosky
