Bowling Stars - Billy Welu vs. Johnny King (Part 2 of 2) "Bowling Stars" was a filmed, syndicated TV series that aired in the 1950s pitting two top professional bowlers in a three-game match, with the winner decided by total pinfall. The final frames of the second match and the entirety of the third match were shown. This week's episode shows reigning champion Billy Welu against Johnny King. "Whispering" Joe Wilson, who was the original play-by-play voice on the early "Championship Bowling" episodes, calls the action. Originally telecast in 1957 from Faetz-Niesen Recreation Center* in Chicago. *More recently known as Ridge Bowl.

I used to enjoy watching those bowling shows in the late 50s well into the early 70s. Sadly, I was never able to go bowling as the alleys were racially segregated where I grew up and we Latinos were barred from those places. I'm sure it would have been fun to bowl with my whites buddies some of whom were very good at the game. But it wasn't to be.

Segregated bowling alleys? Really?
