Vintage TV

Seniors take to cable with a simple message: Old is grand

"We got a lot of dates that way," she says.

Johns ends each show with, "It's not age, it's attitude." Her attitude toward age comes through in the name of the production company she is in the process of helping form. Still Kickin' Productions, which she hopes will be in full gear by the end of summer, will start out producing Senior Moments, as well as a film-review show for seniors and a homeless-shelter documentary, she says.

How Johns, always on call with a cell phone, pager and e-mail, will have time to view anything seems a lot more pressing a question than whether the productions will actually happen.

Cable TV hostess Gobie Johns wants to change attitudes about aging.

Doyle, a Still Kickin' board member, has the probable answer.

"I'm so active I really don't have time to watch TV."
