Last Hand, a novel by Tom Price.

"Take a journey back to a bygone era before laptop computers, digital TV, and cell phones and experience the carefree summer days of the 1970s, attend public school, enjoy holiday traditions, ride along on a summer road trip, and sit in on a game of the all-but-forgotten (but once popular) game of pinochle."
Set in the 'burbs of Chicago - a suggested read for any FuzzyFan.

The Museum of Classic Chicago Television (www.FuzzyMemories.TV) is an IRS-classified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit charity organization, incorporated in the State of Illinois. Donations are gladly accepted and are 100% tax-deductable to you. (if you choose to take the deduction - it's up to you) Upon request, you will receive a letter giving our Federal EIN, which you can use when you file your taxes for a charitable deduction.

What do we accept as a donation?

1) A monetary donation is gladly accepted, and will go directly toward many worthwhile needs such as obtaining new vintage tape collections, purchasing & refurbishing old video tape players, website hosting fees, web design and programming fees, blank DVD-Rs, storage fees for our tape archives, etc...

2) Any old tape recordings off of Chicago TV made in the '70s up until the mid-eighties that you might have. Ideally, with all or most of the original commercial breaks intact, although if you have a program that is important in itself, such as Bozo's Circus, or some other locally produced program, then commercials are not necessary. We are currently accepting anything (and we do mean *anything* - news, sports, TV shows, movies, TV sign-offs, boring junk that only we'd find interesting, etc...) - we are putting our official cut-off date as 1985, although obviously the older the material the more interest it would be to us. (if you have something more recent than 1985, you can e-mail us anyway - we may still be interested in it!) Note: If you don't want to give up your original tape, we will gladly transfer it to DVD for you so that you can hold on to the original.

You can PayPal us at: fuzzy@fuzzymemories.tv (click on the link at the bottom of the page)

(or you can also donate via Google Checkout on our YouTube page)

We also offer sponsoring of specific videos.
