Aircheck: WBFF (Baltimore), 4/1/1994

Throughout the history of television, there have been many attempts to make the game of Bingo a successful program. They all share one thing in common: none of them were all that successful.

Here’s one of the more unique attempts back in 1994 – taking the game of Bingo and making it part of a larger talk show. It only aired in the Baltimore TV market back in early 1994, though there were eventual plans to syndicate the half-hour show and make it seen nationwide.

More interesting here is who is hosting the show – Bob Marella, Caron Tate, and Sean Mooney. If you’re a wrestling fan of that era, Mooney should be familiar to you – but who’s that Marella fella? Yep, that’s Gorilla Monsoon – using his real name. Bobby “The Brain” Heenan also winds up making a cameo on this April Fool’s Day episode, making one last televised appearance with long-time real-life bubby Marella.
