Lights! Cameras! Auction! Yes, I've used that line before, but not for 50 straight years…. which is what WCET-TV is celebrating with its 50th annual "Action Auction" Tuesday April 25 through Saturday April 29.

Yes, it's old school fund-raising. It's also fun to watch because you can get some great deals on wine, art, pottery, hotels, restaurants, Reds tickets and all kinds of stuff while supporting public television.

OK, people, listen up. We all need to help make WCET-TV's 50th "Action Action" fund-raiser a big success.

It's a great way of saying thanks to the nation's first licensed public TV station for Big Bird, Cincinnati Symphony and Pops concerts, "Downton Abbey," Ken Burns documentaries and yes, even those nostalgic rock music specials packed with pledge breaks.
