'Pinbusters'

If you were a young duckpin bowler in Baltimore in the '60s and '70s, your dream was to appear on this Saturday-evening WBAL, Channel 11, show. Host John Bowman would interview you, his warm baritone hopefully making you a little less nervous, and you'd stride onto the WBAL studio lanes to do battle against some equally nervous foe. Win six times, and you retired as an "undefeated champion." Greater glory could no kid imagine. (Pictured: 'Pinbusters' trophy won by WBAL radio reporter John Patti as a youngster.)
