Al Holst, the Host of TV ACRES CLUBHOUSEHi 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, 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 born.

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.
