Charlie LaFranchise had a kids' show in Portland, Oregon
Here is a photo showing Charlie LaFranchise as "Uncle Charlie,"
of KPTV in Portland, Oregon.
Here with "Uncle Charlie" is Jim Allen, aka Rusty Nails the clown, who was also a fixture on that station.
According to Allen, Charlie died back in 1990
I would like to thank Tim Hollis for his time, the picture of "Uncle Charlie" & all the information he had provided me with and a special thanks for introducing me to Benny Carle!
Thanks Tim! Cowgirl
