Hi Ho Silver. You also have to remember Jim, back then we didn’t have the selection of programs as we have today. These are still classics and always will be.
Funny thing is I was just talking about Sky King the other day to a friend.
Remember the Whirlybirds. One of my favorites. I think I was impressed by the helicopters.

Thanks for posting that Jim. I enjoyed Glen’s fast picking! I think that song was also used in “A Clockwork Orange”.

This got me thinking about other classics from the black and white TV era. Remember Richard Basehart in “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea”?

Hey!

Thank you KIMOSABE… !!

I watched them TODAY!!

Every morning on the COZI TV channel Over The Air (not Cable) on the NBC Network Ch. 4.2 in Los Angeles area! The Old Fashion way of receiving TV… with an Antenna going to the TV… It’s GREAT… it’s all HD too!

EDIT:
Some of my favorites were: Capt. Midnight, Red Ryder & little Beaver, Buck Rogers, Inner Sanctum, The Great Gildersleeve, Tim McCoy, Tarzan, Green Hornet, The Shadow, Henry Aldrich, Lum n Abner, etc. etc.

Will never forget the Newsreels at the movie theaters… in 1945 seeing the A Bomb dropping on Heroshima & later on Nagasaki… The ONLY way we could SEE the News back then…

I’m sure you listened to those too… YES?!
... on the RADIO!! Tim McCoy was on TV… learned indian sign language from him… wooshStay (good greetings)...

G’day Jim,

Yes the Lone Ranger was a very popular regular show on TV in Australia. Along with Superman played by George Reeves. The Flintstones and Gun smoke were also very popular, Peter Gunn was another.

I agree, it was a great time to live. No drugs and no smutty rubbish or bad language on TV or the Cinema, just good wholesome family entertainment.

That was a great post Jim. Glen Campbell and his guitar was superb!!!! Thank you for putting it on site.

Regards,

Cliff.

A pleasant interlude from listening to wood working machines humming away
Glen seems to have a very impressive backing group there!

A great tribute by a great guitar picker. Thanks Jim. Sure brings back some swell memories.

I dunno, but he left this silver bullet.

Hi Rob, Gene and Ron. I watch all my movies on You Tube any more. Any new movie that comes out seem to have to have the F word in it. That offends me and I refuse to watch the new movies because of that!!
I was watching Groucho Marx last night..What a hoot!

Cheers, Jim
