More Wig-Wagging With Wallace - with the History Detectives

This just in: Remember that post that I did on the Wig-Wagging With Wallace exercise record set? We knew back then that the History Detectives were going to do a show about Wallace and boy, I've been anxiously awaiting it's premiere next Tuesday. But wait! They posted it online early! Here you'll learn lots more about our good friend, Wallace:

Watch the full episode. See more History Detectives.

Pretty impressive, huh? Go Wallace!

It looks like they'll even be posting Wallace's exercise routines on their website soon if you're inclined to do some wig-wagging yourself!

Until next time (a one and a two and a three!)
x's and o's,

If that's a vid, it's not playing for me, but I love History Detectives!

Love tales like that! I always try to find out as much as I can about the obscure things I pick up. Mostly I've discovered the first owners of some books I have from the early 1900s which is very cool to me!!

That is SO cool they are doing an episode on this! It was really interesting to watch.

But, didn't the granddaughter know she could just go to Ranch Dressing for all the information she needed on Wallace! :)

Hi, Eartha! I've been lurking for the past week (just found your site) and I'm wondering ... what's up with Wallace? Why didn't his grandaughter know him? Did he desert his first family? -- Kate

I knew about this from Eartha BEFORE Tukufu told us about it!

Such an interesting piece, combining my favorite television program with my favorite blog.

History Detectives is one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing!

I have an old Victrola and also two Wallace exercise records. They have only one side recorded. When I was little my friends and I would exercise to them. Think there is any value in them?

Eartha Kitsch said...

Georgie: Thannnnks! :)

1950's Atomic Ranch House: Sorry that you couldn't view the video. Hopefully, you saw it on TV last night.

Rueby: I think that's pretty cool too. You and I are in the Nancy Drew Club.

Sara: I know, right? I should just post my phone number. You KNOW how I love to research things! ANYthing!

Barbara: Thanks! :)

Kate: I'm not sure. I wondered that too! There is so little written about him that I haven't even seen his family mentioned much.

Johnny: Aww! Thanks! And yeah, seriously..I want to be a History Detective!

Suzy8-Track: You're welcome! :)

Jane: It's hard to say. The records aren't among those that you see frequently but I've never seen a value placed on them anywhere. I love that you have first hand experience exercising with Wallace! :)

I saw it a few days ago and thought of you the whole time-(well ok, not the whole time, I did follow the story). Eartha must be doing a calistenic dance right now, thought I. And how cool is it to know about something before PBS tells me about it?
