Welcome to my A-Z list of 2016.
This year, I'll be recalling some of my favourite programs from television, via A-Z, of course.
How many of these do you remember?
Were these before your time?
This blog post has been written in front of a live studio audience.
1969-1974 / Love, American Style featuring: Rotating cast
This was a show I watched either because my mother or my sister was watching it. But it's interesting to note, one of the episodes from this series spun off into a very popular show, Happy Days.
1976-197 3/ Laverne & Shirley featuring: Penny Marshall, Cindy Williams & Michael McKeon
One of the many spin-offs from Happy Days was this one, also set in Milwaukee. Like Happy Days, it held special interest for me, for that reason alone. But it was also a funny show, even if I preferred Happy Days more.
1982-1986 / the Love Boat featuring: Gavin Mcleod, Bernie Kopell, Fred Grandy, Ted Lange, Lauren Tewes, Jill Whelen & many guest stars.
Though this was largely a romantic comedy, I recall watching this often. It was on just after Fantasy Island so they already had my attention. I always thought it was cool they had such well known celebrities guest starring.
This A-Z list has been brought to you today, by....
1972 - Life Cereal
1987 - Life Call
Please note: The follow few selections are in memory of my dad. Being his favourite beer, he would often perform his own 'Miller Lite' commercial for the amusement of friends and family. Seeing these ads brings back many fond memories.
1982-1986 - Lite Beer (Featuring John Madden, Rodney Dangerfield, Dick Butkus & Bob Ueker)
