The bowling craze of the 1950s


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Twenty million Americans had one thing in common in the 1950s, they all bowled.

You could even watch five bowling shows a week on channel four back in the day. One child of the fifties was a terrible bowler back then and is still these sixty years later.

Fortunately, he decided to be a reporter instead of a pro-bowler. Craig Wirth takes us back to a time when thousands of Utah folks bowled in leagues all over Utah. It’s this week’s Wirth Watching report.
