Ann Miller gets lots of screen time and also closes the show. Other talent includes Rudy Vallee, Rosemary Lane, Allen Jenkins, Joan Merrill, Richard Lane, Six Hits and a Miss, Eddie Durant and his Rhumba Orchestra, and the Glen Gray Band. The Three Stooges also appear. Bad luck there. Link in comments.
This is some of the German radio you would have listened to as an American foot-soldier in Europe during World War Two. CHARLIE AND HIS ORCHESTRA did some of the taunting as did LORD HAW HAW. But a British Colonel has the last word when Berlin is taken. Link in comments.
King Features Syndicate responded to BUCK ROGERS with FLASH GORDON - a synchronized comic strip and radio play that ran every week for 26 episodes in this first iteration. One damned thing follows another delivering thrill after thrill. Link in comments.
A science fiction film starring Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman, and Jerry Lewis, based on the book SLAPSTICK by Kurt Vonnegut. Some praise this film and some despise it. I have JERRY LEWIS ISSUES and might try to watch this later. Link in comments.
Producer-Director Fred Barzyk of WGBH Boston helped make BETWEEN TIME AND TIMBUKTU happen as well as THE LATHE OF HEAVEN. He also brought us OVERDRAWN AT THE MEMORY BANK in 1983, based on a story by sci-fi author John Varley. Link in comments.
Here is a selection of Yuki's most popular Anime music expecially remixed and reworked by Yuki. You will hear tunes from .hack/SIGN, Noir, and Aquarian Age. Soprano Emily Bindiger sings. Link in comments.
A good year for Steve with BACK IN THE HIGH LIFE being declared Album of the Year. Westwood One taped his Cleveland show and distributed this result. You will hear fresh renditions of his tunes with VALERIE being my favorite. Link in comments.
90 tracks of talk and song from The Beatles, Ravi Shankar, Eric Clapton, and others. Very informative. Westwood One created product like this and distributed it on CD to member radio stations for broadcast. Link in comments.
Here are 2 music videos from from HOW TO STUFF A WILD BIKINI. Annette joins The Kingsmen to perform BETTER BE READY. And watch The Kingsmen perform A LITTLE LOVIN' to see if there is anything Ringo-esque going on. Links in comments.
This is from 1996 and out-of-print. There are a lot of tracks here including the Theme Song in 3 versions, A Clown in the Sky, A Patrick Swayze Christmas, Master Ninja Theme Song, Music From Some Guys in Space, and 22 more. Link in comments.
This was another one of Annette's Post-Disney beach movies, family-safe of course, with Frankie Avalon as always, and with comedic help from Buddy Hackett, Don Rickles, and Morey Amsterdam. Weight-lifters Bill Cunningham and Peter Lupus are on the album cover. Where is Peter's right arm? Well? Link in comments.
This is the off-Broadway show which became the HBO film that never aired. A copy of the film is on YouTube right now but you will prefer this video which is twice the size and twice the quality. Link in comments.
This was an after-school half-hour for children featuring Andy Devine and a magical frog that was summoned by exclaiming "Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie!" The middle 15 minutes of the show was always the next installment of some tedious serialized story. Link in comments.
