Especially if they feature personalities of which I am familiar, even if the program is from before I was born.
That’s what’s so spectacular about You Tube;
Man, if you’re interested in a particular TV show from the late 50’s or early 60’s, it’s probably on there somewhere.
It ran from 1950 through until 1967 – and was the longest running network panel show.
John Charles Daly, a well-known
and respected broadcast journalist,
did a yeoman’s job as moderator –
— and he had to be fast on his feet to keep up with the intellectual, witty panel usually consisting of Random House publisher Bennett Serf, show biz columnist Dorothy Kilgallen, and the stunningly beautiful actress Arlene Francis.
The premise of the
show was simple:
the celebrity panel would question their guests to
try to determine their
occupation or claim to fame.
– but folks from a wide range
of occupations would make
up the majority of guests.
John Daly would welcome the guest and ask him or her to
“Sign In Please “ .
Each panelist could ask the guest yes or no questions about their occupation until they received a ‘no’ answer –
There are several things that
make the show a real treasure
for a vintage culture fan –
– seeing the celebrities in
Willie Mays ,
Ella Fitzgerald, etc….
— and the lovely level of civility
that was shared among the
panel and participants alike.
— sausage stuffers,
trombone teachers —
— about the only thing you’d
know for sure is that you
can’t tell by just looking at them.
So, why not catch it !
