Jan. 22, 1975: Channel 17 reaches out to the public

Not a bell ringer like during “The Great TV Auction,” but a bell ringer as in the bells on a telephone.

J. Michael Collins spent nearly 40 years trying to get phones to ring on WNED-TV, usually in an effort to sign up new members or while standing in front of the Quickies board during the auction.

However, on this night 40 years ago, Collins — presumably without Goldie Gardner by his side — was asking Buffalo what kind of programming Buffalo wanted to see on his station.
