An Assignment for 30/40-somethin' Nashvillagers

Alright all you old heads like me. Here's four names that came up in conversation last night. Your challenge: 1. (the easy part) tell me what they had in common 2. (the trickier part) tell me something unique about each one.

The names:
Bob Lobertini
Tom Siler
George Goldtrap
Boyce Hawkins

Bonus question-Do you remember Miss Eleanor, Miss Norma and Miss Nancy?

WeatherDudes of yesteryear in Nashville. Remember Ron Kaiser? I got on Tom Siler's spot one time in about 1978 when they were doing a live feed from the Italian Street Fair. My first tv appearance.

Trivia....Boyce Hawkins' brother was in what group now enshrined in the Country Music Hall of Fame?

Romper Room...my sister made it on there. Some things in life just aren't fair. One of the Miss Nancy's was actually Beverly Early. I was in the same grade, same school as her daughter.

And that's the weather...by George. I always wanted him to miss the chalk...

But what about Pat Sajack?

My sister and I used to practice saying Bob Lobertini because it was the strangest name we had ever heard.

No Romper Room at our house, I don't remember why. My parents had television rules, so we didn't get to watch much.

But 'By George' didn't do that much did he? Lifetime average: 96.4% catches.

Thanks, George Goldtrap

I don't know why but I started thinking about Bob Lobertini and Boyce Hawkins this morning! Then I found your site. I remember that "Captain Bob" did the weather on Channel 5 and some kind of kid's show. Boyce was the weather man on Channel 4. He seemed like a real nice man. I was hoping to find some pictures. I have blurry images, probably because I was so young. I was also into Romper Room, Captain Kangeroo, the original Batman and Robin, etc.
