Last night the skies over the Detroit River lit up with the annual Freedom Festival Fireworks - telecast as usual on Channel 4.  I had the pleasure of co-emceeing the very first and second televised fireworks displays with Carmen Harlan back in 1982 and 1983.  On last night’s news, and also during the evenings festivities, the station showed a compilation piece of the fireworks coverage over the years - highlighting Carmen’s various chapeaus. If you don’t blink, you’ll see a few seconds of me from those early days at the very beginning of the piece.  Nice black stache, huh?
