Afternoon TV flashback

Having been home on medical leave for around a month, I watched a lot of afternoon TV. In case you haven't had that luxury--here's what you're missing: lots and lots of judge shows, talk shows, infomercials, and a handful of soap operas. Even though we had fewer channels when I was a kid, it seemed like we had better variety. Yeah, we still had soap operas (and more of them), but we also had quite a few game shows. Before I started getting hooked on soaps (the first two for me were Guiding Light and Days of Our Lives), I watched a lot of game shows. Some would seem familiar to you--like The Price Is Right. I remember when that show first came on..it was just a half hour! Later it was expanded to an hour. I liked Bob Barker because I remembered him from Truth or Consequences. There was also The Gong Show..a talent competition not very different from today's America's Got Talent. Okay..it was quite a bit different..because most of the acts were horrible. I watched Match Game (star-studded big money Match Game '73!) and also liked another celebrity show...Tattle Tales, even though it was actually kind of stupid. Here's a fun clip of that show, featuring Betty White with the love of her life, Alan Ludden. Enjoy.

World's Worst iPod:Escape Club "Wild Wild West"
Remember when we were headed for the 90s..and grooving to the Escape Club? This band from London scored a number 1 hit in 1988 with the song "Wild Wild West." It's probably the only song you remember from that band--but they weren't a One Hit...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time. But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made it all the way...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...

World's Worst iPod: Engelbert Humperdinck "After the Lovin'"
One of the great things about radio in the 60s and 70s is the variety of music that made it onto the radio. A rock song by Led Zeppelin could be followed up by Paul Anka or Andy Williams. A polka could make it to top 40 right alongside a disco song or a...
