BTWF: Brad Garrett on Dick Clark’s Nitetime
November 7th, 2018 under 70s, Before They Were Famous, Brad Garrett. [ Comments: none ]

Before Brad Garrett had his own comedy club in Las Vegas, he was an up and coming comedian doing standup on Dick Clark’s Nitetime. How funny was the 25-year-old in that 1985 episode? Who knew he could do impressions?


What’s Happening’s Danielle Spencer recently got emergency brain surgery
October 19th, 2018 under 70s. [ Comments: none ]

Back on the ’70s, Danielle Spencer was known as the tough-talking Dee on What’s Happening. On September 7, 1976, she was in a car accident that left her in a coma for three weeks, a broken leg, arm and pelvis. Her stepfather died in that accident.

Since then she has had several complications from it, the latest one almost killing her. On the 41st anniversary of the accident, she started suffering debilitating headaches. She went back and forth to the doctor and was prescribed medicine. Then she was found unresponsive and rushed to the hospital. Doctors “did emergency brain surgery removing a bleeding hematoma that formed due to the car accident 41 years ago.”

Now she is on the road to recovery, but she needs some financial help. Her friends started a GoFundMe Page to raise the $25,000 she needs during the long rehabilitation period.

Since the show ended she has worked as a veterinarian and did some occasional acting. Back in 2014, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Throughout all of her health issues from the accident and cancer, she remains positive. She will get through this too, she just needs a little help from us.


Fuller House just got six million dollars richer!
July 2nd, 2018 under 70s, Full House. [ Comments: none ]

Fresh off of their successful Hallmark movie, Eat, Play, Love, the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman are joining forces again. This time Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner are cruising their way over to Fuller House.

The ’70s icons filmed their episode this weekend and Jamie Sommers gave us a little sneak peek. According to TVLine, “D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy (Andrea Barber) mix things up by planning a girls night out — only to discover they’ve accidentally booked themselves on a senior citizens dinner cruise.” The ladies come across some interesting people like the bionic duo and shop & dash’s Lanie Kazan.

No word when season four of Fuller House will begin to stream on Netflix, but this is an episode to watch out for.

You know if Majors and Wagner keep teaming up like this, then I bet you someone will revive their shows based on their bionic babies. They can have babies, right? I mean, they were still human after all. Did they ever address their reproductive organs on the dramas?


Tony Orlando and Dawn reunite for a Christmas Miracle
May 11th, 2018 under 70s, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, ABBA announced that they are releasing new music together for the first time in 35 years. Yesterday. Tony Orlando and Dawn revealed they will be reuniting for a Christmas concert in Illinois on December 11th. It will be the first time in three years that Orlando, Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson will sing together.

At this rate, Disco will make like a Zombie and come back from the dead. That’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it. Yes, I know that is a KC and the Sunshine Band song, but it works better than untie that yellow ribbon ’round the ole oak tree.


Mamma Mia! Get your boogie shoes on Dancing Queens cause ABBA is back!
April 27th, 2018 under 70s. [ Comments: none ]

It is has been 35 years since ABBA silenced themselves, but the four of them have found their voices again. They broke the spectacular news on social media today by saying, “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday.

“It resulted in two new songs. One of them, ‘I Still Have Faith in You,’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December. We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.”

In the words of their last hit, “Thank You for the Music” That and Gimme, Gimme, Gimme more. This Dancing Queen is willing to spend Money, Money, Money on their new tunes.

Heck if it does really well, maybe other Disco acts will ask us to Take a Chance on Me too. Am I the only person who loves Disco?

BTW I wonder if the sequel to Mamma Mia had something to with the four of them finally reuniting and working on new music.
