Oldies TV

My family never got a TV until very late in 1959, so my TV viewing dates from that point

I loved Victor Jory's MANHUNT (a San Diego cops show) and SEAHUNT, plus RIVERBOAT (Darren McGavin & a VERY young Burt Reynolds) - but then I was just a "munchkin" so what can you expect?

Add to the list: "Johnny Stacato", "Peter Gunn", "T.H.E. Cat", and later, "Get Smart" and "Man From U.N.C.L.E."

"The Saint" (Roger Moore) started my love for Volvo 1800's - and I'll never forget how disappointed I was to (later) discover that tiny 4-banger in such a gorgeous car - hence my current '65 1800S with the '87 Camaro V6 in it

What was TV ?

WE lived up in the mountains and couldn't get good reception. It was a saturday night ritual for all the extended relatives to travel to the step sisters place and watch what ever was on the one channel they could get. I still only watch a little bit, History channel, PBS stuff.

favorite tv shows of the 50's and 60's

we got our first TV in 1948, but I'm not tellin what my favorite show was cause, when you start talking about 40,50,or60 year old tv shows you are only one step away from the home.

Duane Eddy did a cover of the original - hence the "twangy guitar"

The original, on the show, was the classic sound of Henry Mancini - the bass/piano lead-in (and underlining the whole piece) followed by the brass joining in with one of the ultimate jazz riffs of the 60's.

Did you know that Sara Vaughan sang a cover of it (with lyrics, of course) called "Bye-Bye"?

There have been so many covers of it (including the Blues Brothers!) that it is one of the most recognizable pieces of music ever, yet many people have no idea what it is called or why!

I second the drool over Lola Albright.

Remember what Peter Gunn Drove? A late 50's Plymouth Ragtop, if memory serves.
