Thank God you can now find some of the Post Star online, otherwise we might have missed Banana Boy
. Mr. Boy was arrested this week in Hudson Falls while shooting a segment for the weekly local TV show The Ravacon
, seen Saturdays at 11pm on TV-8 in Glens Falls. As a videographer shot Banana Boy being accosted by a knife wielding attacker, Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Shawn Lovelace happened upon the scene, drew his weapon, and placed the group under arrest.
Regarding the incident, the Post-Star talked to legendary Albany ad man Jesse Jackson
, who now owns TV-8:
Jackson said could not begin to describe the show but said the young men are very talented. "I've been in TV for a lot of years and I've never seen anything like them."
The Banana Boy crew say they've never had trouble before, but, "We do a lot of our stuff in South Glens Falls, and the police know us there."
