This is for the old folks…young whippersnappers under the age of 60 or so will not have a clue as to what this is all about.

As often happens, I stumbled upon something while looking for something else. What I found was a digitized copy of the Wake Forest student newspaper, “Old Gold & Black”, dated November 19, 1965. It is the preview issue for the 1965-66 ACC basketball season, so has a lot of material at the national, conference and local level, including a lot of great pictures.

Unfortunately, the scans are very poor, so the pix are not so good. But the ads are all just black & white, and that is what interests me. I have added a few pertinent items from my miscellaneous file.

So, the wayback machine, 1965 edition:

GoldLeafFire

The Gold Leaf Supper Club burned to the ground in the early morning hours of April 13, 1971. About two hours after the fire started, an anonymous caller told radio station WSJS that the fire was the work of the “decent” citizens of the community. No arrests were ever made.

Dick Bennick, a long time radio and TV personality with WTOB and WAIR and WGHP-TV, was co-owner of the club. He is best remembered for a show on WGHP which featured horror movies, with Bennick as the host under the personsa of “Count Shockula”, and later, “Dr. Paul Bearer”.
