Johnny Ginger on “The Rifleman”

Here is a fun vintage 1960’s TV western / vintage Detroit TV tidbit. From 1962, WXYZ TV’s kids’ show host, Johnny Ginger, made an appearance on THE RIFLEMAN, starring Chuck Connors. This episode, “Two Ounces Of Tin”, featured a guest appearance by Sammy Davis, Jr, as a gunfighter. (Trivia: Johnny’s real name was Galen Grindle) As a kid – we¬†loved watching him host 3 STOOGES, shorts Channel 7.
