Pat Saylor I love the sci-fi and westerns!
Thank you Sci-Fi shows are on Tuesday’s and Westerns Friday
Chris Johnston Not the season for this, but I enjoy the Christmas versions of many of these shows. Amos and Andy, Phil Harris & Alice Faye, Fibber McGee & Molly. While Amos & Andy aren’t very politically correct, their annual Christmas show was not only funny but touching.
We have all the seasonal shows and they are fun to run at the holidays.
Steve Cannon One of the ” Gunsmoke” Christmas shows was one of the best I have ever heard. A daughter and husband lock out of the house on a cold Chtistmas Eve.
