Dear Mr. Fox, I am in the middle of your book and words cannot describe the many feelings. Also, I was on the show as a kid in 1965 and Gary Lewis and the Playboys were also on that day.

It was a once in a lifetime experience that I shall always cherish. Much love from Bronx USA.

Thank you!

A NOTE FROM SONNY

As many of you already know, I receive a steady stream of messages from my ‘kids’ recalling their memories of watching, or participating in, Wonderama and Just for Fun, the two multi-hour weekend TV shows I hosted on Ch 5 in NY in the sixties. I am always delighted—and amazed—at how vivid your recall is over these many decades.

Last week I received the first of two e-mails from someone I had not encountered before. Dr. Lori Sweetwood wrote of how, every Saturday, she watched Just for Fun, and reflects, in her message on the moment when the child trying to open the mystery chest when the one of the thousand keys he/she started with actually works. At that moment we stopped all other proceedings and started piling the successful  child’s arms with a seemingly endless  supply of games.

It is her reaction to that event which spoke to me on so many levels. With Lori's permission to post, please start reading her first message, continuing on the fan blog page, and rejoin me after for my thoughts provoked by her intensely personal recollections.
