Mel Jass doing a commercial live (and cracking up) on WTCN.
Tom Runestrand: I was part of White Bear Lake’1971-72 install-ment of “Highschool Highlights”on WTCN, taped at the Calhoun Beach Manor. I had made an 8mm movie called “Tin Angel”starring some pals from school and music by Joni Mitchell. I saw the prerecorded version at the first airing and have always wondered since if I”ll ever see that half-hour episode again. If you can locate it in the WTCN-KARE archives, please send me an e-mail. Thanks and I love “tcmedianow”!

Bloomington Resident: I served Mel White Castles on hwy 7 , around 1979– he pulled in in his Mercedes drunk as hell!
Dan Emerson: Mel’s voice sounds different here than I remembered it on matinee movie.
Mel was a big Muntz guy and this is an amazing TV offer.
