North Ridgeville library television program sends residents back in time

A presentation on television programs from the 1950’s provided older residents with a blast from the past.

The North Ridgeville Branch of the Lorain Public Library System, 35700 Bainbridge Road in North Ridgeville, hosted on March 24 an event presented by Joel Keller of North Ridgeville to provide an overall look at the time period’s most popular shows.

For the presentation, Keller provided information about shows like “The Loretta Young Show,” “Howdy Doody,” “American Bandstand,” “The Cisco Kid” and “The Red Skelton Show” including run times, actors, actresses and writers involved and a general premise for each.

Additionally, short snippets were played of each show and trivia questions were asked for Keller’s audience. 

Although the television program presentation was started last week, Keller said he’s been giving a variety of presentations since 2013 and currently has an active list of 40 presentations available.

His inspiration for history and music first began when he visited in 2015 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

He now hosts events at libraries, nursing and retirements homes, rehabilitation facilities and colleges in the area.

Now, Keller said some of his most popular presentations cover a decade of music and history from the 1920’s to the 1960’s. 

“That whole series goes over very well with the older population,” he said.

These presentations are perfected with help from Keller’s wife Linda.

“She’s my chief critic,” he said. “I made some major changes for today from last week. I think (the presentation) went way better today than last week.”

Debbie Schmitt, 67, of Avon Lake, said she is friends with the Kellers and has been to previous presentations.

“I grew up in the early (1950’s) and found out a lot more than I knew or that I remembered,” she said. “It was very informative. It took us down memory lane.”
