On Wednesday, March 20, 2002, the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia held our monthly luncheon at the Bala Golf Club in Philadelphia. It was a very stormy day for the Delaware Valley, but it was bright and sunny inside.

The program for this meeting was "Philadelphia TV Kids' Hosts." The moderator was Bill "Wee Willie" Webber, a kids' hosts on several channels. Our guests were Joe Earley, Sally Starr and Pat & W. Carter Merbreier.

Joe Earley portrayed the mechanical man called Mr. Rivets. The show was on the air from 1952 to 1956. Sally Starr, still an icon in Philadelphia was a kids' host on Channel 6 for two decades. Pat & W. Carter Merbreier were Captain and Mrs. Noah on Channel 6 for a quarter of a century.
