Now here's a little piece of Captain Fortune trivia for you: in the mid- 1960s Captain Fortune was doing some sort of promotional thing at a supermarket (?) parking lot in Walnut Creek. My friend & I were there. He had a program at that time on a UHF channel, & we told him we thought it would be neat if he did a Dance Party-type show for us teenagers. He said "SURE!", so we put it together. We rounded up all our friends - kids who hung out at the bowling alley - got our friend's little band & showed up at the studio one day & had a great time being TV stars. I only know of maybe two people who remember this. Anyone else out there?
