In this episode of Austin Jackpot Bowling, broadcast on September 3, 1961, two competitors face off for a chance to win a monetary prize. Buddy Tobin and Charlie Lambert each take 10 shots at the pins, knowing full well that only strikes will count in this match up. As the two men bowl, their match is commented upon by host Jake Colvin – filling in for regular host Dan Love – alongside the general manager of the bowling alley, Reba Carpenter. This is a gem of classic television from KTBC-Fox 7, then known as Channel 7, liable to bowl you over!
