How many of you remember Joe Franklin's TV show? Wasn't Joe always on WWOR (Channel 9) in Secaucas,New Jersey? I probably misspelled the name of the town. Sorry. I just remember that he had lots of funny, quirky, D-listers, most of whom would have been great dinner party guests. I seem to remember a female guest who was promoting a very cheesy 45RPM called "The Space Shuttle Shuffle". That must have been about 1983.She was a great conversationalist, though. My cousin, an astrologer and a very funny, intellectual lady actually appeared on his show several times. She remembers that she came on after a model who never ended up making any huge mark. Anyway, at the end of the show, Joe asked the model, "So, do you think "Diane" (my cousin) could become a model?" The model took on a very cold expression and blurted out, "Yes, but she would have to work very,very hard." By the way, my cousin was no slouch. Joe Franklin belongs to a former age which valued TV guests who could hold a conversation rather than those who simply have a "project" to promote. Do you remember this show? Or, even better, what were some of the many regional talk shows that you remember watching as a kid? What made those shows entertaining for you?
