Salty Brine

Local kiddie-show hosts are a fascinating topic, and always rich with nostalgia.

Here in Rhode Island in the Sixties, we had SALTY'S SHACK, with Salty Brine.

Here's a brief appreciation of the man, written at his death in 2004.

I managed to find this 1979 televised profile of Salty posted below. Even if you have no connection with the show, you get awesome B&W footage of Sixties TV, plus a flashback to 1979 fashions and furniture and cars, plus a chance to study the peculiar RI accent.

Finally, Salty has a memorial beach named after him, tying in to our beach theme.
