Modesto: The Good Old Days Remembered
Remember the days of the corner fruit and vegetable stand, or how the whole town showed up for the hometown parade, going to drive-in movies but not really watching them, or the excitement of your first date at Minnie's Restaurant? With the help of longtime Modestans, KVIE takes a look back at events and places cherished in memory. The program recalls the agricultural roots of this once sleepy, rural community and revisits a time when the pleasures were simple and times were less complicated. The program cruises the 1950s, with petticoat and poodle skirt flair inviting viewers to turn up their collar and dust off those dandy denims, as local 50's radio hosts and natives talk about living American Graffiti. Through personal stories, home movies, and old photographs, fellow Modestans take you on a nostalgic look at their favorite places to eat, see a movie, and have fun.
