Fashion Hits Through The Years

This week brings us a really fun episode, "Fashion Hits Through The Years" from 1971 which included with your regular song, dance and champagne music....a sample of fashions from the 1920s to the 1970s.

It's time for the show to start! Here's the gang in their raccoon coats with "Button Up Your Overcoat".

Straight from the 1940s, the duo of Gail and Dale with "Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree" which they are dressed staright out of a scene from Ken Burns' latest documentary "The War".

Here's Mary Lou Metzger complaining to talior Charlie Parlato that "Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long" as Jack Imel and Bobby Burgess show why.

Also, Clay Hart gives us a visual reason why "Everything Is Beautiful" and it's not just the fact he sings Ray Stevens' most popular hit song so very well.

And now it's time to go down to the Cabaret with Bob Lido and his gang of Hotsy Totsy Boys!

Other fine numbers in this show include Tanya's "Hey There" along with band instrumentals of "Someone To Watch Over Me" and "Get Me To The Church On Time". Also included are "Anything Goes" by Sandi & Sally, "Puttin' On The Ritz" by Cissy and Bobby, "Shine On Your Shoes" danced by Arthur Duncan and a great polka by Myron Floren with "Hoop De Do".

A very wunnerful show indeed, and this week's interview was pleasant and fun!

Speaking of that, Mary Lou herself was interviewed....and no, she didn't interview herself (that would really make for great TV!), instead it's Bob Allen from OETA that stepped in and conducted the interview.

Until next week, may your trouble be few and may your dress shirts be anything but pink, orange or green!
