1078. Some months back, when transitioning to the New Blogger, I absolutely trashed my blogroll. I just realized I am quite remiss in not adding back Yesterday's KPTV sooner.
Yesterday's KPTV tells the story of the people and times of KPTV in its pre-FOX days. In some ways, KPTV was Portland television, and had some of Portland media's most well-known and beloved non-news names (Gene Brendler, Addie Bobkins, Heck Harper, Rusty Nails the Clown and, of course Ramblin' Rod) and Portland's most longstanding and beloved news anchors as well (Lars Larson back when he was nice, Kim Singer, Gary Hill, Kathy Smith, Ivan Smith (no relation) and even Tom McCall).
Yesterday's KPTV pulls it all together into a cool package (complete with history, photos, clips, old logos, and all that) that is good for hours and hours of time-wasting for the nostalgic Portlander. Do not go there if you're on a deadline.
It's one of my favorite sites. Such good memories.
