A Fan's Experience on 'Antiques Roadshow'

Q-TV Viewer Larry Launstein, Jr. talks about his experience at the Detroit 'Roadshow' taping

Antiques Roadshow in Detroit will air Monday, March 3 at 8 pm.

Q-TV viewer Larry Launstein, Jr. got to be a part of one of his favorite shows when he attended the Antiques Roadshow taping in Detroit this past summer.

"My mother and I have a regular appointment with Antiques Roadshow," Launstein says. "If any of you haven't experienced being at Antiques Roadshow, all I have to say is you are in for a lot of fun, despite the long lines. A lot of people will have their items there and they are always happy to share with the others in line."

Out of over 30,000 applicants, Launstein was one of the lucky 6,000 to receive a ticket to the taping. And out of those 6,000, only a handful get their item appraised on the show.

"I did not get my item, a large color photo of hockey legends Maurice and Henri Richard, appraised, but I did tape a segment in the Feedback Booth," Launstein says.

"I did not get to meet Mark Walberg or the Keino brothers. But it was still worthwhile to learn about some of the other pieces there, as well as my own.  I hope everyone on here gets the chance to be at the Antiques Roadshow some day."

The first episode of Antiques Roadshow in Detroit will be shown again Monday, March 3 at 8 pm on Q-TV.
