Retro Wednesday.....



Before there was MTV...
Before there was Don Kirshner's Rock Concert..
Before there was Hullaballoo and Shindig...
Even before Dick Clark's American Bandstand....
The popular music of the day was on TV...
YOUR HIT PARADE!!!
Dorothy Collins, Snooky Lanson, and The Hit Parade singers!!
Of course I remember that show...hehehehe
Peace...!!!


(Not this episode sillies, it ran until the late 50's)

I've heard of that but never saw it. Which is probably just as well because, from the clip, it looks pretty goofy.:-)

So what was life like before telegraph and vacuum tubes?

That seems like a way more simple time. :)

Jessie said...

let's see ... corny, surreal ... a combo of a grown-up version of the Micky Mouse Club and Lawrence Welk. And yes ... this was before my time.

thanks for the giggles,

Feeling a bit nostalgic lately g?
I was recently thinking about how I
would wake up early Sat/Sun mornings and put on the ole B&W and the only program on was the
"Modern Farmer"!

For a city kid it was very educational! :D

The Lucky Strike commercial, what a hoot. I do remember the cancer stick ads, but I was not yet around for this show. :)

I'm not quite old enough to remember that show. Close, but not quite.
