In the late 1940s, the Tech Theatre was the venue for a regular Saturday morning live radio (I think it was KFYO) show featuring a live talent contest for children. I used to go down every Saturday morning to try and win the contest by singing the latest song. I think Bob Nash was the Master of Ceremonies. It was a very popular radion show of the times.
I lived in the Tower Theatre in the early 40’s. My father was the projectionist and I have so many beautiful memories of that building. When a film had completed its run, my father would place the octagonal film cans containing the reels on the curb in the darkness outside the theatre. The bus driver (on the last bus of the night) knew to pick up the reels and deliver them to the next town! All my memories of that building are lovely ones.
