Superb Anniversary Special
14 March 2006 | by (Marietta, GA) – See all my reviews

Talk about something I wish were on DVD! I treasure my audio copies. This was a February 1978 special celebrating the CBS network's 50th anniversary. Instead of cramming it all into four hours as NBC had done in 1976, CBS spread it out over a week: two hours on Sunday, two and a half hours on Saturday, and an hour on each of the weeknights. Each night celebrated series that were famous on that night (LASSIE and ED SULLIVAN, etc. on Sunday, I LOVE LUCY and MAUDE, etc. on Monday, etc.) and then they would have other features about news, sports, special events, etc. They even talked about the radio era, especially on Sunday's outing. The parade of stars at the beginning is very nostalgic, because many of those people are gone now. How about it, CBS? I'd settle for a plain vanilla version just to see it all again; this one doesn't need extras--it IS an extra!
