• I certainly Soupy Sales, having spent my formative years in the Detroit Media Market. For many years, I believed that Detroit was his hometown. A very funny man.

  • Soupy got his break in Detroit, on WXYZ, but he was from N. Carolina, of all places!

    He was certainly part of my early childhood: I’d rush back from my half-days at kindergarten to be home in time for ‘Lunch with Soupy’.

  • I grew up in Detroit as well and watching Soupy Sales on WXYZ figures among my first media memories (or any other kind of memories).

  • Soupy Sales once asked the children watching his TV program to empty mommy’s purse and mail him all the pieces of green paper bearing pictures of the presidents.
