That, children, is CW McCall doing a musical segment on something called a talk show in 1976. The funny box he's touching is called a CB radio. This was the Mike Douglas Show and it was different from talk shows like you have today. Don't tell anyone, but Auntie Erin has that very song, Convoy, on her iPod.
Other people who had the old time talk shows were named Dinah Shore and Merv Griffin. People talked on the talk shows while sitting on chairs that were lined up just so:
A lady named Betty White was always on talk shows.
Why yes! That's the very same lady as the one in the Snickers Super Bowl commercial.
Now children, let me tell you something about Dinah Shore that is sort of grown up. Dinah Shore may look all prime and proper in the short video we just watched, but she was doing some very naughty things with the man sitting next to her when no one was looking. His mane is Burt Reynolds.
That was from the Merv Griffin Show, which was on TV when Jesus was still alive. Look! There's Betty White again!
No, that's not a trick. Mr. Griffin is really smoking a cigarette indoors.
Scary things like that used to be on TV all the time, but that's enough of my stories for tonight. You children change into your jammies and I'll go and fix up the cocoa. Then we can all watch Jersey Shore before bed.
