Hollywood Squares:

In the 70's, Hollywood Squares was my favorite game show. I still wouldn't have bought the record, though, I wasn't that big of a fan...

There were some names long forgotten.

Yeah, like Totie Fields. Who the heck was she???
My mom was childhood sweethearts with John Davidson. They both grew up in West Bridgewater Mass. He used to buy her Neco wafers.

I was more of a Matchgame fan. In fact I was actually looking up old Matchgame stuff on YouTube last night, lol.

Paul Lynde was the bomb though!

joe said...

Him and Charles Nelson Reiley.

Totie Fields was a top standup comedian in the 60s-70s. She was on shows like Ed Sullivan, Mike Douglas, etc

I always loved this show. Didn't know about a record though.

Ann: One thing I remember back then, was that celebrities were mostly middle-aged to older adults. These days, if you're over 30, you're a wash-up.

Keith: Me either. Go figure. This was from 1974.

The record says for DJ only, so I assume it wasn't for sale, but some kind of promotion.

joe said...

Well I still wouldn't have bought it.

I had a friend who not only bought the record, he believes with all his heart that Paul Lynde's responses were'nt scripted.

joe said...

They were?

joe said...

Well, rest assured, my friend! I can guarantee you that NOTHING here is scripted! Everything I say is PURE, ad-libbed nothingness!

Why was there a record, I loved watching it just for the jokes, they questions were kind of stupid,but paul lynde could have me rolling on the floor.
