Made in America

Airing May 29 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on the Travel Channel is actor John Ratzenberger’s Made in America show. Made in America is a weekly program that features in-depth stories of American inventors and manufacturers. Ratzenberger, familiar to some as the know-it-all postman Cliff Claven from the beloved sit-com “Cheers” and to the junior set as the voice of Mack in the recent animated movie “Cars”, came up with the concept of “Made in America” as a celebration of American ingenuity and labor. With this broadcast, Rock-Ola joins the company of some other iconic American makers as Fender Guitars, Mack Trucks, Cris Craft Yachts, Caterpillar, and Anhauser-Busch ---- all of which have also been featured on Ratzenbergers’s show. Made in America will be re-broadcast on May 30 at 12 a.m. and June 2 at 3 p.m. ET/PT.

The Boomer Show

A different perspective of the Rock-Ola Company is explored by a feature on The Boomer Show, broadcast on Wealth TV. The Boomer Show offers a close-up of Rock-Ola’s most recent addition to its Nostalgic line, the Nostalgic Music Center. High-end and high-tech, genuine Rock-Ola jukeboxes hold a special attraction for the show’s target audience, “Boomers”. The Rock-Ola feature episode debuted on May 18. For rebroadcasts, check local listings or Wealth TV’s schedule. Later this Summer, Wealth TV will again feature Rock-Ola Manufacturing Co. — this time for a full 30 minutes — on Behind the Name, a program that goes behind the well-known names in business and manufacturing today. Rock-Ola celebrates its 80-year anniversary this year.
