CARROLL, GENE (13 Apr. 1897-5 Mar. 1972) had one of the longest-running television shows in Cleveland. A native of Chicago, he dropped out of high school and performed in amateur shows to compete for cash prizes. He joined Jack Grady of Chicago in a successful song-and-dance act in 1924. When Grady became ill in 1929, Carroll teamed up with Glenn Rowell of Cleveland. Known as Gene & Glenn, they appeared in vaudeville and on the radio, performing in Cleveland on station WTAM from 1930-35. In 1934, NBC began broadcasting a 15-minute version of the act "Gene & Glenn," including the characters of Jake and Lena, which were created by Carroll. When Jake was to marry Lena in 1935, crowds gathered around the WTAM building in anticipation of a glimpse of the couple. Carroll and Rowell left Cleveland in 1935, performing out of Des Moines, Chicago, and Boston until 1943. After Rowell's departure for war work, Carroll appeared on the "Fibber McGee & Molly Show" on NBC for 1 season. He returned to Cleveland in Apr. 1948 to establish a talent school and begin a television variety show on WEWS, continuing these projects until his death. The television program, originally known as the "Giant Tiger Amateur Hour" and then the "Gene Carroll Show," was continued by his widow. After his first two marriages ended in divorce, Carroll married Helen Olsen in 1940.

These guys were really famous, The most famous people never heard of!
I wish I could get some audio but here is a Gene Krupa, Harry James video, they really rocked the house in the thirties! Could that clarinet player be Benny Goodman?

The surviving machine shop, at the corner of Washington & Harding, is a nice place to visit. Its exterior has been nicely restored and it's still possible to take pictures of it without getting any of the modern additions in the background.

Hi Chris, I checked Google mapping, {Harding and W. Washington Street} at ground level and the surviving building appeared to have been converted into a housing unit. The area still seems to have some industrial buildings to the west. The wood structure must have been unsafe and the smokestacks unstable. It?s a shame this site was not preserved. I would have liked to go over the soil with a metal detector. :)
