Lunch With Casey

Remembering Casey Jones and his pal Roundhouse

Axel and his Dog

Clellan Card’s “Axel and his Dog” gets considerably more coverage than Casey, even though Casey was around a lot longer.    The show ran for many years on WCCO.

Axel had a little toothbrush mustache. He also talked in an exaggerated Swedish accent, which was a hoot! When he passed away, “Carmen the nurse” (Mary Davies), who was his sidekick, inherited the show. For a little more on Axel, visit Julian West’s website, Axel’s Treehouse.

A book called Lost Twin Cities featured a chapter on Axel, and the public television series based on the book featured a segment on Axel.    Be sure to read Julian West’s great biography of Clellan Card.
