Another in a series of post-dated entries designed to deploy while I’m in Kenya. I’ll be back in the U.S. on Aug. 4.
Today’s post is fun rather than mission-oriented. It seems like I’m frequently passing along little bits picked up from Mark Evanier’s blog, and this is one of those.
I am too young to remember the TV show “Sing Along With Mitch,” but I do remember several tie-in record albums which my Dad loved and played often. We used to have stuff like this on the LP on Saturday afternoons — the Chad Mitchell Trio, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and so on.
Anyway, I didn’t know much about the format of the show, but apparently it was a running thing that during the big finale, they would sometimes have an unannounced celebrity just standing in among the chorus. The camera would pan across, and there they’d be.
See if you can spot a well-known TV host in this one:
If you need help, you can see him just before the three-minute mark. Someone could introduce him, of course, but the best guy for that job passed away a few weeks ago.
