Bowling was very big on television in the sixties and seventies. Channel 29, WTAF-TV (now WTXF-TV) aired several shows featuring the sport. Here's an audio clip from March 31, 1970 including promotional announcements and commercials. The announcer is Dick Schorr.

Joe Vozzi, a visitor to our website e-mailed:

I produced those shows and was on the air with Dick Schorr.

According to an article in the Northeast Times, Joe, indeed, did co-host these shows from 1970 to 1981. According to that newspaper, bowling shows aired Saturdays and Sundays at noon on Channel 29.
