Those Were the Days

1970 The 5 most popular shows in 1970 were:

  • Marcus Welby, MD
  • The Flip Wilson Show
  • Here’s Lucy
  • Ironside
  • Gunsmoke 

We saw the introduction of Krazy Glue, the Boeing Jumbo 747 (no relation to Krazy Glue), and the Tote Folding umbrella (no relation to the Jumbo jet).  The Yankees did NOT win the pennant, but the NY Knicks won the NBA!  (Yes, they actually won one.)



Saying of the Week

It’s not easy being green.

Kermit the Frog (one of his first utterances as the star of a fledgling empire called “The Muppets)

Song Clip:  The Supreme’s “Someday We’ll Be Together” or Bridge Over Trouble Water or Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head (wasn’t that Kermit’s song?)
