Neil Corcoran Headlines as Spad JohnsonIn other AWESOME news, one of my clients has some BIG NEWS that I’m allowed to share with you all!  This client – actually they are more like friends for whom I do the books and buy props for the show –  produces television shows and…and..ohthisissoexciting…WE’RE GOING TO BE ON THE TEEVEE!!  Tonight, June 24th at 8pm on WIVM TV 52 and/or Time Warner Channel 365 and 367  and/or WIVN TV 29 Time Warner Channel 99 (these are Ohio/New Philly channels) Spad Johnson, Private Eye will be airing for the first time, ever!  This is a long time in the making and if you are in the Ohio/New Philly area please, PLEASE watch and if you like it, let the station know, let everyone know!  Spad is a private eye in 1950, the show is very much like the movie The Maltese Falcon or the original Dragnet series, and if you do get a chance to watch it, Spad’s desk is from my family’s farm and I helped pick out most of the props (other than bookkeeper, my official title is ‘propmaster’, how cool is that?  hehe)

That’s all for now!

  1. That sounds so cool, is it on only locally (I live in NY)? I would love to check it out. I’m not sure if you remember but I met you at Clermont (you were signing a bag at the Into the Whirled stand) and I made sure to get your card, love the bags! And your handspun is gorgeous. Don’t you just love what a good wash or reskeining does to the yarn?

  2. Do people have to bow before a “prop master”? Exciting news. Maybe you can youtube it for the rest of us? Gorgeous yarn – just gorgeous! What are your plans for it?

  3. How fun! A TV show that you had a hand in – guaranteed to be good. :)

    LOVE the new handspun. I almost bought that FreckleFaced roving colorway myself!

  4. I had no idea that when spinners showed their lovely new yarn it had been through a wash and thwacking. What a difference a good thwacking makes! They are both pretty, but the colors in the red are amazing.

    Congrats on the TV show airing!

  6. Wow I feel like I know a celebrity (see comments on last post to get the irony there)! Seriously, that’s so cool that you have a hand in TV-land. Let us know how it goes.

    And the red yarn is my favorite.
