    Thank you for sharing your grandfather’s legacy with us. My 70 year old brother, Dennis Biel, was a guest on your grandfather’s show when he was about 2-3 years old. He sang “You are My Sunshine” for the audience.
    My mom is 90 and she just told us the story of how she brought my brother to the Bob Heiss show in fall / winter time when my brother was about 3 years old. Mom said she was so proud as he sang beautifully for the audience.
    Getting a copy of this show would be an absolute treasure for the family. Please let me know if the episodes are available for viewing and/or copying.
    Thank you and God Bless!

    As far as I know, there are no recordings of my grandfather’s TV shows. It wasn’t common to record or save TV or radio shows in that era. The only recordings I have are the few radio shows which are available on this site.
