    bowling ball was not the American Beauty, it was an AMF strikeline, i contacted the person who posted this, and he still has the ball

    It was Thunder Bowl Lanes in Allen Park. The show was hosted by Bob Allison. My late Grandpa was the “mechanic” in the back keeping the lanes up & running. My sister & I were introduced in the audience quite a few times waaaay back in the 70′s. I did make contact with Bob Allison oh about a year ago to see if I could obtain copies of the shows to show my kids’ but to my disappointment, the shows were recorded over because of the cost of the reels back then.

    @Anna. Thank you for this info!

    @sstrothe I worked as one of the directors on that show in Toledo (WDHO-TV 24) and we used five video tapes labeled Monday thru Friday. Each week we bulk erased the previous show once it had aired and recorded the new show over it. It’s unlikely any of the individual shows exist. However, you could try Bert Claster television, I believe he’s in Baltimore on the off chance he may have a dub.

    Would anyone have the BFD Christmas Edition December 24th 1976,My father was on it and i was wondering if anyone has any information on it?

  16. Zickcermacity says:

    Does anyone have video of BFD with Larry Kenney?? That’s what I watched in Metro-NY.

  17. sstrothe says:

    i’ve been looking for Bowling for Dollars films aired in Toledo OH. My dad was a contestant and I want to give that episode to him for his birthday or Christmas. Anyone have any leads?

  18. dbacksta says:

    could you check and see if its still there, cause id very much like the ball, if you dont know what to do with it

  19. curtlow says:

    I think I remember seeing the ball at her house at one point – not sure if it’s still there but it’s possible.

  20. dbacksta says:
