Now this is what I always called them. My question are there any still being run? The last one I saw was in the Mid 80's in Alexandria KY.

You can really tell when a good pitchman is working it. The midway just DIES.

I remeber seeing one in the early 80s. I don't remeber much of what he said, except I wanted that remote control car he had behind him.

Anyone have a good video of one?
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

The only one I ever heard of was in New Orleans, and a former key show person was running it.

I sat down and watched one in the early 60's in Pa. It made no sense to me. At that time, the pen was a buck.

I haven't seen the full jam in years, it generates too much heat. Mini jams are alive and well, often in indoor vinues
