various and assorted miscellany
...he sure was a smoothie!
I love these classics!
Some of these old variety Christmas specials are cool :)
Everybody, loves somebody sometime 🎶
"Sway" is my favorite.
Wow, it was a very different world back then! I enjoyed watching it, but can't help thinking about how it would be viewed using today's optics.
Context is important. Today's variety Christmas shows are different but still have a lot in common with the old ones.
I like these old time singers at Christmas. Some people might say the songs are bit sexist and outdated, but they speak of a time gone by and so you can't expect them to be like today. I don't remember this special. My parents didn't like Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra. Can you image that? Happy new month. Hope the second has been a good day for you Nita.
Daddy liked Dean Martin, and we watched his tv show :) There's so much sexism today I have trouble condemning the 60s :(
Bob Newhart was hilarious and Dennis Weaver looked SO young. I really enjoyed this one.
I liked it, too :)
My folks watched every one of these and the Andy Williams Christmas specials...and all the rest of them--LOL! I enjoyed them, too. :)
The Andy Williams Christmas shows were wonderful, weren't they!
Thanks, but not my thing! Have a great day, Valerie
For me they provide some entertainment variety :)
Christmas variety programs!A quest rewarded!--A Pal
This one's worth watching :)
Love Dean Martin, when I think of him I can remember so many fabulous songs! I love Christmas too so I will enjoy watching this show, thanks for sharing 😁. Happy December! Hugs Jo x
I hope you enjoy it. I liked it as a bit of happy Christmas fluff :)
