TV stars are in my family


This has nothing to do with embroidery, but since I like to watch TV while stitching, it counts. Back in the late 80's, one of my brothers (that's him in the sunglasses) had a very unique job: he wrote, directed and starred in his own Fox-affiliated TV show called Live On Tape. It aired every Saturday night at 10pm and was broadcast throughout the surrounding Mississippi valley region, into Iowa and rural Illinois. The show ran for three years, and was a favorite among the can't-stay-up-late-enough-to-watch-SNL set. He erected a website in its memory with clips so even if you didn't grow up in the central midwest, you can still watch Live On Tape.
