I’m a the lead producer working on a new Detroit Public Television production called Detroit Remember When: Detroit’s Iconic Brands.
We’re looking for home movies, images and artifacts that show names and products of Detroit’s past, especially during the baby boomer years - the late 50s through the mid 1980s… Sanders, Vernors, Strohs, Buddy’s, Little Caesar’s, Velvet Peanut Butter - the list goes on and on.
There might be some brands you might be partial to that we’re forgetting!
Being this is television, we’re looking for the images that will bring back our collective memories.
And, we’re interested in hearing some interesting stories you might have about Detroit and the products you remember that were ‘our brands.'
The program will air early next year, but we will be wrapping up production in the next two months, so we’d really like to hear from anyone with stories to tell and hopefully have some pictures to go with it.
