This Saturday, Don’t Miss ‘Detroit Remember When: The History of Detroit Television’ Screening & Book Signing

Last Updated by Lea Vigi on

This Saturday, starting at 2 p.m., the Dossin Great Lakes Museum will host a screening and book signing focused on the history of Detroit television.

Join two of the film's producers - Detroit’s Old Media Archivist Ed Golick and veteran newsman and Associate Professor of Communication at UM-Dearborn Tim Kiska - as they chat about their film and books dedicated to Detroit Television history. They'll be joined by the original White Fang puppet from the Soupy Sales Show!

Soupy Sales. Johnny Ginger. Auntie Dee. Sonny Elliot. Robin Seymour. Bill Bonds. The list of characters who entered our living rooms through Detroit television is long and colorful. This documentary examines local TV from the late 1940s to the 1990s. Highlights include rare footage including an amazing vocal performance by 14-year-old Ursula Walker, who today is a Detroit jazz legend; profiles of Soupy Sales, Sonny Elliot, Bill Kennedy and other local celebrities; the story behind one of the longest-running TV series in America, Detroit’s American Black Journal; recollections from Mitch Ryder and others, and much more.

Don’t miss this great event at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Admission is FREE.
