Skipper Chuck just turned 80.  He's on AM radio from 10am to Noon daily 640AM Radio out of I think Lake Worth FL. He still sounds the same.  I called in and  :scared: won a couple of tickets and a dinner for two for answering some trivia question.  I told him this will make you feel old Chuck I'm 50 and I was on your TV show when I was 8 or 9.   :scared:  :grin:

When I was 18 to 20, I used to bridge jump off the old bridge across lake worth inlet, right by the ocean.  It was about 35 feet and the tide would rip, and I would do swan dives and people would clap and hoot and holler..then I would have the swim hard against the current to get to the seawall and scale up it, and go do it again.


About 10 years ago I was diagnosed with compression fractures in my neck. While it is liveable and doesn't slow me down much, I often wonder it it was from hitting the water head first, jumping off that bridge.

Back to the subject here, is anyone gonna let me off the hook and tell me what the hell skipper chuck had to do with the seed?

Greg:

Are you referring to the Boynton Inlet?  If so, you are one brave guy.  I was bridge jumper in my youth, but I always went in feet first. I was cured of thrill jumping when I did a sink hole outside Tallhassee and had scale back up a mud wall to get out. That was the last free jump  for me.  But what a thrill.  

As for Skipper Chuck Zink, he's also a biggie on public radio in West Palm Beach.  He's an ok guy - has some pretty helpful programs for senior citizens.  Now that some of us are staring to qualify for AARP membership, he doesn't seem like such an old fart after all.


Good day and good jumping.

Yes, but I felt betrayed when he became the spokesman for the Village people. After all, he had always said "kids are people too!" How could he endorse a community that's so mean to kids?  ::noway::

She's talkin "Century Village" 55 and over adult living condos.  Chuck zink I think did a movie that Art Barker was in also.  Some of the Seed kids went on "Skipper Chuck Show" for a short time way back then.

The fact that this thread has over 4000 views shows that we are all middle aged farts and have gone soft in the head! What will the younger folks from more contemporary boot camp/therapeutic community/boarding schools think of us? They are all busy with Ecstacy, self-mutilation and abstinence education and we're taking about Skipper Chuck and Banjo Billy!

Enough already! (OK I loved that show when I visited my uncle in Hollywood Florida but - really)...

Fran,
       What part of Hollywood fla did you hang ?,
that was where I did most of my drug damage.
I lived over by the pig farm near the Indian reservation, near Sterling rd & 441 . The police had coined our group of stoners " The Pig Farm Bums"  Anyway that was the very early seventies. I wonder if we ever crossed paths., at the Jetties, Young Circle,
or Johnson Street Beach where all the freaks hung out.
  :???:  :em:

My druggie days were in the year 1972 and yes...Hollywood Beach...the paddle ball courts...Young Circle...mostly hung out down the street from where I lived at Oakridge Elementary...they had portables to hide behind...paddle ball courts to hide around...also hung out a few times at the lake next to TY Park ( which was not there yet) which was a quarry at the time forgot the name but a bunch of kids would go swimming back there and hang out. Dania Beach was a major hang out...the pier. Yes in some ways there were some fond memories of growing up.

I grew up in Pompano, but remember (vaguely) going to concerts at Pirates World. Grand Funk and Blood Rock is one that pops to mind.

I lived in Pompano but hung out at Ft. Lauderdale Beach or Holiday Park.  They were not good memories at all.
