"Happy Days" were on prime time, but Gilligan's island as well as Adam 12 were after school repeats.That's where I was at. Barely remember "Ironside", but Marcus Welby MD..Clear as day.

Trivia? What was the slight variation in Gilligan's island's 2 different versions of it's theme song?

The initial version didn't refer to the Professor and Mary Ann. It named all the characters and when it got to them, it said something like "... and all the rest".

In later years when the Professor and Mary Ann became more popular characters, they changed the song to end with "... the Professor and Mary Ann..."

Recently watch some episodes of Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction. Wow have time changed.


And this weekend did a binge of WKRP and News Radio. WKRP is very much of that time, but as my wife keeps saying it was also very much like Radio was at the time of format change. (She was the Bailey at her station).

So I guess you were a Bailey rather than Jennifer Marlow kind of guy.

That ranks up there with the Ginger or Mary Anne debate. For me, always Mary Anne or Bailey vs Ginger or Jennifer Marlow.

Anyone else recall this one? (your mention of "petticoat" brought it to mind)

Also, Betty vs. Veronica (Archie comics).

In the 60s there were so many "opposite" niche shows.

Beverly Hillbillies vs Petticoat Junction
Munsters vs Adams Family
Flintstones vs Jetsons
Bewitched vs I Dream of Jeanie

A bit of trivia.... Jan Smithers (Bailey on WKRP) married James Brolin in Nova Scotia in 1987. They divorced in 1995. She now lives in Halifax.

Oops... gotta edit. She has since moved to California.

Bonsecours market and Rue Notre Dame, 1950ish. Old Montreal was quite decrepit back in the "good ol' days"


Old Montreal was largely abandoned in the 50s, and the area in front of Montreal city hall became a parking lot.

here is one to get started. Remember Taverns (appropriate given the Mary Hopkins song), that staple of working-class Montreal? No women permitted? Pickled eggs and perhaps, pickled pork tongues?

^probably for the bartender, who handled busboy tasks, customer orders and beer runs, and cash all at the same time.

It’s a miracle most of Old Montreal survived through the 50’s-70’s. Château Ramzay, built in the 1700s is right next to that parking lot. Would have been easy to tear it down to expand it or something. And there was that freeway project too, which thankfully never materialized.

I remember as a kid that with some exceptions, much of Vieux-Montréal and Vieux-Québec were largely abandoned as late as the 1980s.

Not so much blighted, boarded-up buildings, but rather lots of dusty worn façades, and dirty windows with total emptiness behind them.

I think it was a reflection of the era where dense older areas were seen as non-functional because they weren't built for the automobile.

Even if a lot of buildings weren't used, I suppose that government heritage programs of various kinds probably protected them from total demise.

Which is great because the vast majority of them are occupied today.

I always had a crush on Mary Ann.

I personally believe that the preservation of Vieux Montreal was, to a large extent, what the late great Bob Ross would refer to as a happy accident": a silver lining of the economic stagnation that Montreal experienced in the 70s-80s, largely due to the winds of political change but also due to the de-industrialization that decimated many cities in North America during that time period. Much of the area below the VM expressway (Little Burgundy, St. Henri, the Pointe, Griffintown, Ville Emard, etc.) was in a time freeze. Next to no redevelopment, and plenty of vacant buildings. The entire area around the former Dow Planetarium (south of Windsor Station) was mostly abandoned factories for decades, right on the doorstep of downtown Montreal.
