Yep, this ship has sailed. If you were watching TV anytime between 1973 and 2006 you know that Weekday mornings at 11AM you'd see this guy. I watched this show with my brother, grandma, mother, friends, neighbors and others I'm sure I've forgotten
From the archives--seems even good ol' Saint Nick is stressed out this time of year too. What could the jolly fat man in the red suit use to calm his jangled nerves? Maybe a mani and a pedi? How bout a snort? A relaxing massage from Mrs. Claus? Nope. None of the above.
Yep, we've come a LONG way since this incredible simplistic toy. The worst part about this - it's totally addictive, yet totally stupid at the same time! So, I say good riddence to this thing - "Ring Toss" or whatever you want to call this thing
I present to you the WFGR Retrovision Series: Things You'll never see again. Today we go back and visit 1989 - Can you even rent VHS tapes anymore? Can you even buy VHS players news? I still have a PILE of stuff I have saved on VHS, and bought a fancy machine that will easily burn them on DVD
Happy Turkey Day! While you re opening your Turkey presents and singing Turkey carols around the fire, enjoy this holiday themed edition of the WFGR RetroVision!
We go back to 1973 for one of my personal favorites.
It was 50 years ago that the world got a look at Johnny Carson as the host of The Tonight Show. Groucho Marx introduced him for the first time, even though Ed McMahon was the sidekick, as he was for all 50 years of the show. The Tonight Show started in 1954 with Steve Allen as host, but it was Johnny who took it over and made it "Carson"
September 26th is always an auspicious day in television history. 2 iconic TV shows made their debut today! One started as a witty, urbane nightly collection of music, comedy and variety. Broadcast live every night 48 weeks a year for 90 minutes nightly, the Tonight Show was NBC's answer to the aptly-named Today Show. When they added the Tomorrow Show, the peacock network had the whole day wrapped up!
Another WFGR Retrovision! Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm recently made light of a newly discovered YouTube video of her on the 60's and 70's game show "The Dating Game" Actors all over Hollywood use appearances on game shows to further their careers. I have seen friends of mine on shows like "Whammy" and "The Newlywed Game" getting more resume and camera time! Jenny was no different back in '78.
Ahhh - the good old days of game shows. Everyone remembers this show at some point. What's even more fun are the clothing, the hairstyles and the music of the time. Take a trip back in time and enjoy, but some other info about this show you may not know, and why you'll never see these on TV again.
