Rewind Back in Time

For the love and appreciation of the Classic TV shows, music, movies, pop culture, history, etc. of the past few decades (mainly the 50's, 60's, 70's & 80's).

The Monkees TV Show debuted 40 years ago!

The Monkees TV show (NBC) debuted on September 12, 1966. That's 40 years ago this month! I can remember when MTV showed the episodes during the 20th anniversary, and now it's another 20 years since then! Where do the decades go?!?

In 1986 I watched all of the episodes via MTV (and VHS taping). Now, in 2006, I'm watching all of them again, this time on DVD's, which I've been renting. In another 20 years I guess I'll watch them again on whatever format we have then, if I'm still alive!

If Buddy Holly had lived...

It's hard to believe, but Buddy Holly would have turned 70 today, if he were still alive. Sadly, Buddy died in a plane crash at the young age of 22 back on Feb. 3rd, 1959. The crash also claimed the lives of Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson, "The Big Bopper", as well as the 21-year-old pilot, Roger Peterson. We can only guess at what great music Holly would have created had he had a chance to reach a more reasonable age.
