The Sounds of My Childhood When I was only 3 yrs old we moved from a farmhouse in Trenton NJ to my Nonna's two story home in Brooklyn. She had a very old, but beautiful RCA Console Victrola with which she played music every day. This was such an experience for a child at that time. Opera, and Broadway musicals, my favorite became the original Broadway recording of South Pacific with Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, and Nonna's favorite tenor, Enrico Caruso. Her music flowed through the house every day and even after all these years, I can just close my eyes and still hear it...a little bit scratchy, but a beautiful memory I don't think I'll ever forget. This song is Caruso singing La Donna e Mobile.

Try to Remember One of the most beautiful songs from the 1960's, from Broadway's 'The Fantasticks', which opened on May 3, 1960, and closed Jan 13, 2002, after 17,162 performances. This song, performed by the Brothers Four, was part of a PBS special on folk music. It reminds me of an era when The Brothers Four, The Lettermen and other groups would perform at coffee houses, winter canivals and university campuses.....Try To Remember!

The Ladies Who Lunch by Dinah Shore Jane Russell (personally I think Jane wasn't drinking grape juice) This gem comes from a 1979 episode of "Dinah!" subtitled "Glamour Is..." with classic glamour gals Diahann Carroll, Jean Peters, Jane Powell, Debbie Reynolds and Jane Russell as well as the designer Bill Travilla who Dinah refers to in this song from Stephen Sondheim's "Company". I've never seen this one as a duet but it may be the only video record of Miss Russell's performance. Someone please let me know if I'm wrong. Jane was the replacement for Elaine Stritch in the original Broadway production and judging by her contribution here, probably did a bang-up job.

We Missed Allan Melvin Passing aka Sam The Butcher Some how we missed Allan Melvin's passing back in January. A character actor best known for playing Sam the Butcher on "The Brady Bunch," has died. He was 84. Melvin died of cancer Thursday at his home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, said Amalia Melvin, his wife of 64 years. The jowly, jovial Melvin spent decades playing a series of sidekicks, second bananas and lovable lugs, including Archie Bunker's friend Barney Hefner on "All in the Family," and Sgt. Bilko's right-hand man Cpl. Henshaw on the "Phil Silvers Show." But his place in pop culture will be fixed as butcher and bowler Sam Franklin, the love interest of Brady family maid Alice Nelson, who was played by Ann B. Davis. Melvin played the role from 1970 to 1973. Born in Kansas City, Mo., in 1923, Melvin grew up in New York and attended Columbia University. He was appearing on Broadway in "Stalag 17" when he began his decades-long television career with "The Phil Silvers Show," playing a role his wife said was always his favorite. "He was proudest of that show," Amalia Melvin said. "I think the camaraderie of all those guys made it such a pleasant way to work. They were so relaxed." He saw steady employment as a voice actor from the early 1960s to the early 1990s, most famously providing the voice of "Magilla Gorilla" for the Hanna Barbera cartoon of the same name. His other credits include several guest appearances on "The Andy Griffith Show," "Gomer Pyle: USMC," and "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

Oliver Original Cast 1964 February 9, 1964 was a good night to be in the audience of The Ed Sullivan Show. Not only would you have witnessed The Beatles make their American TV debut, as an added attraction you would have seen the original Broadway cast of Oliver! perform two songs. (That's Davy Jones as the Artful Dodger in the I'd Do Anything number!)

Ivan Dixon of Hogans Heroes Fame dies at 76 Actor Ivan Dixon, who brought the problems and promise of contemporary blacks to life in the film "Nothing But a Man" and portrayed the levelheaded POW Kinchloe in TV's "Hogan's Heroes," has died. He was 76. Dixon died Sunday at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte after a hemorrhage, said his daughter, Doris Nomathande Dixon of Charlotte. He had suffered complications from kidney failure, she said. Dixon, who also directed scores of television shows, began his acting career in the late 1950s. He appeared on Broadway in William Saroyan's 1957 "The Cave Dwellers" and in playwright Lorraine Hansberry's groundbreaking 1959 drama of black life, "A Raisin in the Sun." In the latter, he played a Nigerian student visiting the United States, a role he repeated in the film version. While not a hit, the 1964 "Nothing But a Man," in which Dixon co-starred with Abbey Lincoln, also drew praise as a rare, early effort to bring the lives of black Americans to the big screen.

Inventing Late Night TV This clip shows the start of late night television. Starting with Broadway Open House, hosted by Morey Amsterdam and Jerry Lester, with the blonde bombshell Dagmar in 1950, late night programming began. In 1954 the Tonight Show debuted with comedian Steve Allen, and then in 1957 the witty Jack Paar took over. Classic comedy clips include Zsa Zsa Gabor, Shirley MacLaine, Johnathan Winters, and Charley Weaver (Cliff Arquette).
