1975: What's On TV Tonight?

01 Aug 1975, Fri The Paducah Sun (Paducah, Kentucky)

The Diane Linkletter story makes me so sad, and The Diane Linkletter Story makes me so mad. Maybe because the Alex Jones garbage has been so much in the news the last couple of days, I thought of the John Waters satire when I saw this note that Art Linkletter was going to be on with Tom Snyder late tonight in 1975. 

I didn't find a clip of Linkletter's Tomorrow Show appearance, but we can imagine what he said. He made the rounds. (... His hair has gone grey/He passes every day/They say he walks the length of the city ...)

Whatever exactly happened when with Diane Linkletter, it's a tragedy. I do know one thing: We could sure learn to be more gentle with each other in this world.

  1. For the record, Ben Vereen was amazing in Pippen. I never understood why we saw so much of him in the mid-1970's until I learned more about that show.
