  1. I love this idea for a blogathon .. you've already got some really good ones! I wonder if I might be able to participate? My idea is to write about the Carol Burnett Show's running series of classic film spoofs. Is breaking it down that way to one aspect of that variety show acceptable for the blogathon? Please let me know what you decide.

    BTW, all of the present shows selected were favorites of mine, and it will be especially fun for me to read about Shindig, Rick! For that show, I was a teenage addict! (Hmmm, sounds like a possible 50's movie title! LOL!)

  2. Just finished reading all the entries. FANTASTIC! Kudos to all! What a blast!


  3. Rick, I do not know if you received my e-mail, but I would love to join the Classic TV Variety Show blog.

    Thanks, Dawn
