As I continue memorizing/ mastering the dialogue to the opening montage, my two sons have grown weary of me saying “the whole worlds gone cray-ze / this whole thing makes me sick, YOU make me sick...”

But, you know what? That’s too goddamn bad, they’ll just have to deal with it.

The Alfred Hitchcock Hour ran from 1962 thru 1965. Over 90 episodes and available for viewing on YouTube. I've been binging on them for the past couple of weeks.

  1:41pm RevPhil:

I remember Broadside. It was set during World War Two. It was the female version of McHale's Navy starring Connie Stevens.
  1:42pm phil.vas1:

@phat Yes! One of those shows ended pretty late. Then the national anthem and snowy screen. Back in the mid-70s when broadcasting ended at like 2AM.

Dipping into the orange crates down in the basement.
  1:44pm David in London:

Mailman Tom. Good shout there. I always loved Hitch’s monologue to camera. He was so acerbic and jolly and sinister.
  1:44pm Papito:

The Happy Days pilot was aired on Love American Style before the Fonz and the gang was a regular show !

is "babacue" equivalent to "sangwich?"

Music to Spazz By...the Munsters Today of radio??
  2:02pm RevPhil:

THE ROBINS did "I Must Be Dreaming" in a Universal movie short titled "The Robins Sing" from 1955.
