    Wish you had a mention of John Lemeke’s “Sports-A-Rama” program which was the very first Channel 10 program that telecast film in full color. It was also a program that was one of the first to feature the sport of automobile racing, which was of high interest in Milwaukee. It was partially supported with a grant from the Miller Brewing Company that allowed cinematographer John to cover races in Milwaukee and also a few Indianapolis 500’s. I was the host of many of those programs. Not really an educational show, but it helped bring a whole new audience to Channel 10 that otherwise never tuned to the station.
