Every summer, when prime time TV shows went on hiatus, out came summer replacements. One example, the John Gary Show filled in for the Danny Kaye Show.
The replacement show must not have made much of an impression. I don’t remember much about John Gary–except that he was a singer. It would be safe to say, it was of the variety show genre.
Guest lists would have included the likes of Lola Falana, Sergio Franchi, and Liberace. These old TV shows can easily be accessed on Me TV or on You Tube.
Three entertainers passed away recently–Doris Day, Tim Conway, and Peggy Lipton. I’m more familiar with the work of the first two. Nevertheless, their styles of acting, entertaining, will never be replaced.
