What's On TV This (Labor Day) Weekend (1974)?

I'm planning to work the rest of this week to mostly clips from the 1974 Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy Association of America, which got rolling on WDXR Channel 29 in Paducah at 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1.


  1. So excited to discover that Charo performance, by the way. The song she is singing, "Cuanto le Gusta," is one my mother would sing a bit of whenever we would start a trip away from the house: "We're on our way (we're on our way) ..." I never knew where Mom got that, so thank you, Charo, Jerry Lewis, et al. And here's a studio version of Carmen Miranda singing the song with the Andrew Sisters, and I feel certain this is the version that would've caught Mom's fancy.

    1. We had at least one Danny Davis album.

    2. I posted that one just for you. But their excellent performance deserved notice, anyway.
