Hello All,
We caught it at 8:40 and had enough time to tape it. Pretty cool as there was Alex, Harriet, Linda, and a bunch of others. They did not have and of the toys for the hosts to play with on the air and then the next segment was how to make Cracker Jack by making popcorn (it similar to watching the Today show on your radio - DUH!). Hopefully this may give the west coast people some advance notice (if they are up at 5am east coast time).

Hey y'all,
I missed it, but heard from a friend that I had, and got an email from someone who saw it and wanted to know how to value and/or sell a few items from the 40's. Wanted to know if any were sold on ebay. I gave her some info, but am waiting to hear what she actually has.
If I hear back I'll let you all know...
Just recently got back from two weeks in Austria. Son's wedding. Saw absolutely NO Cracker Jack in Austria but ate a lot of strudel.

Hi, Everyone

I also missed it! :(
I hope it can be embedded to this web site for all to see. Either here or on the CJCA members only forum. :P

I'm hoping they post a video on their website. http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/12065856/

If all else fails, I recorded the show, and archived it to a DVD this morning. Everyone looked great on it.

Thank you, thank you and thank you to Alex and Luke for directing us to NBC's website to view the "History of CJ" piece. I missed seeing it on TV but just watched it on NBC's website. All of you who spoke were great. Very professional and enthusiastic. I actually saw the back of my head in the background. And I was happy to see that the back of my head was having a good hair day. Oh gosh, I feel like a star!!!!!!
