Day? Time?

NOTE:
  • E-gorespondent "Dano" contributed this entry: "There was a guy about 16-17 years ago on the KSFY station in Sioux City called 'What's His Face.' Although KSFY says he was not a horror host but he "simply used funny vignettes," he wore some sort of mask and as I remember at one time had higher ratings than Saturday Night Live in our area. Anyway,they say his name was Al Penley. He is a fond childhood memory and would like to know if anyone else out there remembered him."
