Original Music Game Show!
25 March 2013 | by (Seymour Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Remembered this show while I was in Miami living at the time in Fla. As remembered how this show would be a rarity. As it showed you naming this or that tune. Like they played the Bid A Note and the Golden Medley.

Tom Kennedy is the best remembered host. Jim Lange of the Dating Game was great. But nobody could be Kennedy. As he made the contestants feel at home and was really good.

Also to help him out was a then unknown Kathie Lee Johnson who would go onto fame as Kathie Lee Gifford as the singing aka La La girl. Man she has come a long way.

Still the best of the musical game shows. A rarity these days!
