The Grenadiers

The Grenadiers was a long time WTMJ variety program featuring Heine and His Grenadiers. Bob Heiss was the announcer and later host from 1939 to about 1950.

A bet between Bob and the Grenadiers on the day of the opening game of baseball season in about 1948 resulted in Bob Heiss losing his mustache in front of a live studio audience.
