folks. I'm Jerome Alphonse "Al"
Holst, the webmaster at TV ACRES and your host at the TV ACRES CLUBHOUSE.
By day, I am a librarian. By night, I am a TV addict and owner of
TV Acres.com, the Web's Ultimate Subject Guide to TV Facts.
I've always loved TV. And I've always liked to gather facts about
the shows I watched and organize these facts so I can easily
retrieve them. And when the Internet happened, TV Acres.com.was
At one point in my life, I recorded TV theme songs off the air. I
still have the tapes stashed in a box someplace. Sometimes, when
I'm planning a road trip, I'll pull the tapes out and use them as
my music as I travel the miles. You haven't lived until you've
sung along to the words of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND or THE PARTRIDGE
FAMILY as you cruise through Kansas going 65 miles an hour.
To help you better understand just who I am, I thought I'd offer
up a short profile with some pertinent personal facts.
So here goes.
