"Hi..I can recall an ABC special they did at Clow's a drama program.that has been a good while ago"
The ABC drama was a movie, "Heart of Steel" That was a long while ago. 1983, starred Peter Strauss and John Goodman.
I also vaguely recall the story madcow is talking about. A News crew showed up here to do a story about something, main street, courtsquare, somewhere,and nobody showed up to greet them, so they left. I remember it being talked about on WTNS morning talk show.
