I've been a faithful listener for many years -- just got one of those Roku tv gizmos -- I'm wondering what are the essential channels for Fool's Paradise certified home viewing pleasure? Thanks, Rex & gang!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm Gaylord Fields:

Yes, Al Molinaro: The only pertson in the entire cast of the putatively Milwaukee-set Happy Days who actually spoke with a Wisconsin accent.

Wonder if he'll show up on any episodes of Celebrity Bowling, currently being marathoned for your viewing pleasure on the Decades TV channel all weekend.

Howdy all!!!

On an episode of Celeb Bowling scheduled to be shown tomorrow, Billy Barty will be competing. As will Charles "No Nose" Dierkop on the preceding ep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Gaylord Fields:

@mic 2: There are lots of free or preposterously cheap public domain channels on Roku, most of which have the same movies and TV shows. Subscribe to a couple of those, along with Shout Factory TV, and you're on your way to televised bliss.

Celebrity Bowling update: The all-Lennon Sisters episode currently airing is shaping up to be one that leads to some very clean gutters.

Sadly, no Murray The Cop analog on the New (New New) ODD COUPLE show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm Uncle Michael:

I may be nuts...but I think this is NOT the first song you've played, bemoaning the sac dress, Rex. Am I correct?
  1:43pm rw:

Can you say chicken pluckin' on the radio?
  1:46pm P-90:

Damn, I wish I could stream Decades on the web. The "All-Lennon Sisters" Celebrity Bowling episode sounds like a must-see. And last week was "Night Gallery" I believe...
  1:49pm DECADES TV:

P-90 , What city do you live in?
Avatar 1:50pm BEAVO:

What, I got to do my own chicken pluckin'?
  1:54pm JakeGould:

@Gaylord: The Lennon Sisters have clean gutters? I always thought they went with a Brazilian? *rimshot*
Avatar 2:03pm BEAVO:

If my girl wants to wear a sack dress, no prob. I don't want a bunch of dudes ogling her. I know what's under there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Michael 98145:

I'd watch any channel that showed Honey West
  2:06pm P-90:

I live in NYC but do NOT subscribe to the local cable carrier. That's why I bemoan the lack of an online Decades streaming option. Even though I don't watch on a Predicta television.
  2:07pm DECADES TV:

Honey West was on Me TV for a long time (now being "rested") and Decades did a Honey West binge not long ago.
  2:10pm DECADES TV:

P-90 - The CBS 2.2 over the air signal does not work in your part of city?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Michael 98145:

Me TV now seems to be Back to Bonanza
  2:14pm DECADES TV:

P-90 - You can check your tv signal map here http://www.antennapoint.com/#__home
  2:20pm DECADES TV:

Yep! ME TV jumped the shark not too long ago when they dumped Sunday QM (Cannon,Streets of SF,Fugitive) and dumped Man from UNCLE to the wee hours !
  2:25pm Sparky:

Hello... I'm a disc jockey.

Fugitive girls. Gotta get me some of that.

Maybe I can figure out a way to pick up the CBS 2.2 signal over the air and watch it on the computer... No one in my house has a "TV receiver" any more. Just computers and monitors. So I live with "Decades Envy."

I transcend the field of brow duality

I simply cannot keep up with all these new fangled dance crazes.
  2:45pm JakeGould:

Too many dances. Too few feet.
  2:47pm Tommy Haynes:

And they all require that you let your backbone slip..are chiropractors coming up with these dances to drum up business

New dance: "Do The Chiropractor"

As long as "Do the Freddy " isn't resurrected , I have no objections
  3:01pm DECADES TV:

P-90 , All you need is a thrift store tv and a digital signal box from wal-mart! Bowling is all weekend long on Decades! Easy and cheap tricks!
  3:01pm IFisher:

Rex, despite having to broadcast in the nude, you outdid yourself with today's show - thanks!

He's leaving...let's trash the place!

Dang! I wanted to ask: is Al Molina related to the other actor Alfred Molina? There's almost some resemblance...
