You may know him as the Kielbasy Kid, Certain Ethnic Guy, or Little John’s sidekick. Chuck Schodowski has been on Northeast Ohio television sets for 47 years. Big Chuck, with a newly published biography in hand, will talk with us about working with Ghoulardi, flying with Hoolie, boxing Mike Tyson and ultimately retiring from the longest run in television history. Join the conversation on The Sound of Ideas®, for a conversation with Big Chuck followed by a special Halloween comedy show from The Capitol Steps. It’s an hour of fun – beginning at 9am on 90.3.
Show Response: Listeners loved sharing their memories and thoughts with us about Big Chuck.
You and Hoolihan once read a viewer joke on the "Pajama 'Party" segment of your show. The set-up was: "How do you goose a ghost?" You said the punchline was too blue to read! How does this joke end??
I've been waiting years to find out.
Thanks for the memories,
Any chance of a local channel running a primetime best of show?
The show actually had good movies from time to time. Are you a 'serious' movie fan?
