Does anyone recall seeing this ground breaking show?
This show was quite a ground breaking event in 1969! As I understand, it was the first prime time talk show in the USA to have a African American host, of course in the form of the incredible lady known as Della Reese! Also as I understand the show was not carried in several TV markets in the south because of bigotry in programming choices. My understanding is that the show may also have been eventually syndicated into the 1970 season as well. As a footnote, Della Reese is far more than the star of a show called "Touched By an Angel", she's also one helluva Grammy nominated singer who has had a remarkable career with a least 20 or more albums to her credit thus far!! You should hear some of these fine albums for yourself to believe! I was not around back when this show was on, so I wonder if any of you remember the show. I heard it was quite good, but what else would you expect from such a survivor like Della Reese?!!
