This person was not widely known outside Oklahoma, but he was the host of a weekly classic movie show on Oklahoma's PBS network (OETA) for 30 years.  They show 2 films every Saturday evening, starting at 9 p.m.  The concept was copied from a local commercial station in the Oklahoma City market, which had a similar show years before, but had discontinued it when commercial TV stations stopped showing films.  In the early years, you could vote for films you wanted to see.
