Avatar 7:00pm MarkTime:

Hi all! Just checking in to say hi in advance. I need to remind my wife and kids not to double-book me on a show night. I look forward to reading any comments that pop up, though sadly not until after 10 PM EDT/7 PM PDT. Thanks Cat for rolling my recording and filling in the playlist!!

Here's for the radio aircheck fun!!!

Mark had a very detailed list but being a bit under the weather, I grouped things together, sure you will enjoy the show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Scott67:

G'day Mark & Time Keepers!
Avatar 8:03pm Don-O:

Keep you hands out of my pocket!!!!
Avatar 8:05pm Don-O:

Sounds like my grandpa old multi-portable!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Krys O.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Mr Fab:

Mark can't make it live today, so much thanks for working your magic to make it happen, Sonderangebot! Hope you're just chillin' like a villain and will get better soon.
  8:12pm Milkies:

Sounding alright to me 📺
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Krys O.:

It's like You Are There.
Avatar 8:13pm Sonderangebot:

That's a pretty cool device for recording, is that what's on the picture?
Avatar 8:15pm Don-O:

I'm being punched in the face by the 90's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, can that boombox thing record audio str8 off the tv? By the '80s we had a tv with an audio output that my brother and I used to run into our stereo aux input.
Avatar 8:16pm Sonderangebot:

I don't know why the kids love the 90s today, sure there were some good things, but when I see them trying to emulate what I was wearing in 1995, please, don't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Krys O.:

I'm finding cassette/TV combos with CB radio too.

Oh, I was a huge Masterpiece Theatre fan for a long time.
Avatar 8:19pm Sonderangebot:

Cincinnati, famous for having pigs running around back in the day or am I confusing cities?
  8:22pm Milkies:

Yeah I did that boom box recording then through the stereo & cassetted commercials ( Pepsi, Channel, etc.) then put the samples in mixtapes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Krys O.:

In my day, we held a Radio Shack portable cassette deck up to the TV speaker. I still have the tape my brother made of Duck Soup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Krys O.:

Sign offs were such strange things in retrospect. I had to sign of when I did midnight to 3am on WFMU, then shut the transmitter off.
  8:25pm Milkies:

Keys O , yeah I have that same one, mine was like wood grain and friends and I would do radio shows and plays
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Krys O.:

Great! Cannon was a fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Mr.Time and boobtubers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Krys O.:

That's Bobby Goldsboro.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Krys O.:

Avatar 8:35pm Don-O:

Night Court? We're stepping back a bit....or it could be syndication...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Mr Fab:

Hank Williams Jr singing the football theme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Krys O.:

Loads of syndication herein.
Avatar 8:37pm HyperDose:

Hands down the best TV show theme of ALL TIME
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Krys O.:

My dad's favorite show after Barnaby Jones.
Avatar 8:38pm Sonderangebot:

My dad's girlfriend Martine LOVED Home Improvement... It's tool time.
Avatar 8:39pm Don-O:

Matlock produced by Fred Silverman.....after almost killing off NBC years earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Krys O.:

I meant Matlock was my dad's fave, not Home Improvement. He probably liked the latter, just not as much a Andy Griffith and Buddy Ebsen.
Avatar 8:41pm Don-O:

This ALMOST sounds like a SubGenius Media Barrage tape....only without Stang screaming every 5 minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Krys O.:

Ha! Just needs some editing to make it Subgenius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Mr Fab:

This was the final era of tv themes, before most shows skipped opening titles, or they're just like 5 seconds long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Mr Fab:

Loved the Ed Gorey opening titles of "Mystery"! Probably my first exposure to him.
Avatar 8:45pm Don-O:

Another variation of the Cosby Show theme.
Avatar 8:45pm Sonderangebot:

Mark writes he doesn't remember that show, so if anyone knows, I'm sure he'd like to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Mr Fab:

Don-O called it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Krys O.:

People speak about the innocence of the 50s or 60s, but heck, the 90s were innocent compared to these end times.

Oh, yes, loved that Edward Gorey montage. He illustrated some children's books that I read in the 70s like House with a Clock in Its Walls.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Krys O.:

90210 rocks the vote?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Krys O.:

That Donahue bumper is great! SCTV parodied him perfectly for that titilation.
Avatar 8:50pm Don-O:

"The Itchy & Scratchy Show" is one of the greatest (and shortest) themes ever!
Avatar 8:50pm Sonderangebot:

It was a good time to play sax for TV themes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Krys O.:

Avatar 8:51pm Otis Fodder:

Great show this eve Mark. Have been listening on bluetooth in the kitchen. Pop in to say super second outing! And hellooooo all.
Avatar 8:52pm Don-O:

Neal Young on SNL!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Mr Fab:

Ha, a Warner exec convinced Lorne Michael to book Devo in '78 with the promise that he'd get Neil Young to perform later. Hey, it only took 15 years!
Avatar 8:55pm Sonderangebot:

Entertainment Tonight, my mom's boyfriend Chuck's favorite show.
Avatar 8:57pm HyperDose:

Never knew who Maury Povich was until someone pointed out he was THAT Maury. Still a bit baffled to this day.
  8:57pm Milkies:

Always dig the bongos on People’s Court
Avatar 8:57pm Don-O:

Hell, I remember when Huell Howser was a correspondence on ER! Next on Old Fart News.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Krys O.:

Mr. Connie Chung.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Scott67:

Thanks Mark & Sondy!!😎🤙🌷
Avatar 8:58pm Don-O:

....make that ET. Next on....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Mr Fab:

I was a big "Jeopardy" fan. I took the test to be a contestant, passed it, but apparently didn't do too well when I took part in a mock show, cuz they never called me. Can't imagine why, I'm so telegenic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm coelacanth∅:

this has been good to remind me why my father called it the boob tube...only it got many times worse since he called it that
Avatar 9:00pm Sonderangebot:

Thanks Scott! and everyone. Mark, I hope you will enjoy reading the comments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Krys O.:

I used to watch Jeopardy with my imaginary clicker clutched in my hand.

Another Earth was a cool movie, btw.

Thanks, Mark and everyone! This was such fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm coelacanth∅:

this is the revised star trek theme music, not the original
  9:01pm Milkies:

Thanks fun stuff
Avatar 9:01pm HyperDose:

Awesome show, Mark. Rekindled a lot of childhood memories!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Mark!
Avatar 9:01pm Don-O:

The Outter limits of MTM!!
Avatar 9:01pm HyperDose:

And I agree, Krys O. Brit Marling and her writing partner are sensational!

i need to hear the cat at the end of this
  9:02pm Milkies:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Mr Fab:

MUCH thanks to mark, Sondy, and all the swell folk who pledged!
