Around the Dial

There were some fine tributes this week to Annette Funicello.  Rick at Classic Film and TV Cafe shares a review of the Mickey Mouse Club serial Annette, Michael's TV Tray gives us a retrospective of Annette's career, and Dawn's Noir and Chick Flicks offers a rundown of some of her favorite Annette moments.  Meanwhile, the University of Maryland's Broadcast Archives has a couple of great Disney pictures of Annette.

Elsewhere, if it's the second weekend in April it must be time for the Masters, and Classic Sports TV and Media gives us a history of CBS' coverage of the tradition like no other. 

Classic Television Showbiz has some classic television clips from the 1960 Steve Allen show.

And speaking of the classic '60s, at TVParty! Cary O'Dell has a great piece on the music from the detective series Peter Gunn, including the fact that it's the only TV theme listed on the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry.

Check them all out, and check us out on Saturday with the latest TV Guide!
