LISTEN: Brian Young shares his Uncle Al memory from Sept. 9, 1981.
Toni Lehmkuhl, Dec. 7, 1955 -- "It was my sister Peggy's 5th birthday. I was 3 and only remember the segment with the root beer & red cream soda floats - AKA brown & pink cows. I was too young to be in that portion of the show, but I think my sister was chosen as the birthday girl. To this day, I still love floats - only now I make them with diet root beer & Graeter's vanilla ice cream to cut down in the calories. Growing up, my kids learned the song 'put your toys away' and now I sing it to my grandson."
Sandi Vaias-Curless, Sept. 21, 1981: "We lived in Delhi, which was close to the studios. My sister and I, along with many neighborhood friends, appeared several times. It was always fun. We were always excited to be on television. I was not shy and volunteered for anything and everything. The one disappointment was that I never got to ride the birthday merry-go-round. There were at least 12 of us from the same neighborhood in this picture."
Mike Wolber, 1959 and 1961: "I was only 3 and 5 when I was on the show, so I don't recall too much, but I clearly remember hour upon hours of watching Uncle Al, Captain Windy, Larry Smith and his puppets. It was definitely appointment television at our house for me and my 5 siblings."
Kelly Woodham. Dec. 18, 1983: "I have no memory of it, I was 4 years old. In the photo, I'm the girl in the middle of the front row. I was there with the little boy sitting to the right of me when looking at the picture. He was a family friend."
Brian Mains, July 28, 1981 -- I just turned five a couple of months before this picture was taken. I only have vague memories from the show. I remember eating cookies during commercial break. I also think I was picked to play the postman and deliver the day's mail to Uncle Al.
Lisa Gotham, 1963 -- "I appeared on the show several times 1962 through 1969. My earliest memory is when I got to be a Kahns weiner and got to run around being a hot dog! My Mom took us there alot what a great Mom and what great memories! The photo enclosed is around 1963. I am in Captain Windy's arms and my brother, Ron Neeley, in standing in front of Windy with the jacket. My mom said on bad weather days she'd like to take us because it wasn't so crowded."
Jennifer Kihnke, 1984 -- "I love Uncle Al and was super excited when he chose me to help with the weather and mail segment."
Jae Dean, 1960s -- "Amazing to say the least. I watched the show as a child so to be a guest was magical."
Lynn Neal, Nov. 25, 1955 -- "Unfortunately, other than being on the show, I really don't have any other memories about it. I only have a souvenir photo. I'm the little dark haired girl in the back row with her hands on her hips. My brother, wearing the pants with the suspenders, is standing next to Uncle Al. This was before Captain Wendy was on the show."
Kathy Hartman, Nov. 1981 -- "I am in the bottom right hand corner with my my fingers in my mouth, lol. I think I was 3 in that picture. My sister Christy is to the right of me and she is 5."
Myndee Griffin, 1982 -- "I absolutely loved going to 'The Uncle Al Show.' I have such great memories. I remember getting to drive a little cardboard car to a gas station and saying 'Fill 'er up!!' I also lied and said it was my fifth birthday so I could ride the Birthday Merry-Go-Round with Lucky The Clown! Group Shot from 1981. I'm the one in the Cowgirl Outfit in second row from front, second from left. Several family members in this photo as well. My mom is in the back holding my little brother, Justin Treadway. I am now 38 and he is 35.
Chris Cottle -- My three brothers and I were there and my two cousins. I think my youngest brother had a safety helmet on his head. I'm too young to remember much. Just have this pic. Was probably 7-8 years old.
Teena Brinkmoeller, not dated -- "I remember very little, but I do remember I got to be one of the kids who wore a duck costume and we walked in a circle around Uncle Al for a segment of the show. We went as a family group, my nieces and cousins were all there."
Amy Batts, March 1980 -- I was on the Uncle Al show in 1980.I was 3. My mom took me along with two other kids from the neighborhood and their mothers. We are all down in the right hand corner of the picture. One of my best and earliest childhood memories!"
Pamela and Connie Smith, 1953: Pamela: "It was my mom, three sisters and myself. My aunt and I think two cousins. I remember seeing Uncle Al and Captain Windy in person. That was exciting as a kid." Connie: "I was disappointed because I didn’t see Captain Windy do her Barq's cream soda commercial. I loved her white boots. I remember leaving the show and pushing open the white gate. I was trying to figure out a way to get back in one last time so I could push open that white gate again. I loved "The Uncle Al Show" and Captain Windy, especially those white boots!"
Jimmy Smith: He appeared on "The Uncle Al Show" more than a decade after his sisters, Pamela and Connie Smith, and cousins.
