Found and restored for generations to come. A 1977 episode of Bowling for Dollars. Bowling for Dollars was a game show produced and aired locally on KSTP-TV in the 1970s. The premise was simple enough, contestants bowl for a jackpot and prizes. I understand from individuals that worked on the show, it was taped on Sunday morning about 6am and then aired on Thursday and Friday nights. Bowling for Dollars like Bozo was a regional “franchise” program, every market had their own version with a general format.
