What's on TV? Sunday, August 30, 1970

What can we say about today's listings? I think William F. Buckley Jr.'s interview with Allen Ginsberg (WOR, 11:00 p.m.) is certainly worth watching, and if you'd like to find out, you can see it right here. Senator Charles Goodell is the guest on WNBC's Searchlight, and although I think I've mentioned it before, it's worth pointing out once again that Goodell, who was appointed to the seat held by the late Robert F. Kennedy, was defeated by Conservative Party candidate James Buckley, brother of Bill. Goodell is also the father of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and the NFL exhibition season comes to TV with a couple of primetime broadcasts tonight. Speaking of sports, I remember the tennis tournament on NET (WNDT here, KTCA in Minneapolis), as tennis was the first sport I ever saw on public television. Those were the days.

But enough of my memories—I'm sure you can look through this and find enough of your own.

  1. I had to look into "Midsummer Rock," shown on WNEW in prime-time. It turns out to have been highlights of the Cincinnati Pop Festival held earlier in the summer at Crosley Field, the soon-to-be-vacated home of the Cincinnati Reds. Over a dozen acts played, but the TV special showed only the five listed. Among the unseen: Bob Seger, who was not yet the star he would become, and Woodstock veterans Ten Years After.

    1. And adding to the fun was that one of the hosts was Jack Lescoulie, formerly Dave Garroway's sidekick on "Today." Lescoulie had joined Avco Broadcasting in the late '60s as a host for live events and was at the Cincinnati Pop Festival for that reason. It's strange seeing this older gentleman from another time in entertainment hosting the broadcast and interviewing these youngsters involved in the rock era.

  2. The Goodell reference brought back this memory...January 1970 in Auburn, NY. Senator Goodell was the speaker at the Cayuga County Republican Party Dinner. At age 16, I was the president of the county teen age Republicans and being from a good Rockefeller Republican family was given a private audience with the senator before the dinner.

    A positive and amiable man who smoked a pipe, he was nothing but gracious to a 16 year old. A few minutes into our discussion, the phone rang and the senator answered the phone. I could hear the one way conversation, knowing that he must be consoling one of his sons who were younger than I. I waited patiently. After a few minutes he gave his child good, old-fashioned consolation and encouragement and hung up.

    "I apologize for the interruption, John," he said. That was my son back in Jamestown and he's very upset because his pet bird died. I needed to talk to him."

    I was understanding and we continued on our conversation which was intelligent, thoughtful and inspiring to me.

    His son who called? 11 year old Roger....and me a lifelong Patriot fan....

  3. The "Batman" show on WCBS Channel 2 at 7:30 A.M. was actually the 1968 animated series produced by Filmation, which in the 1968-69 TV season had shared an hour-long slot with the Filmation-produced "Superman" cartoons (under the title "The Batman/Superman Hour"). I believe that all of the half-hour animated "Batman" shows aired by CBS on Sunday mornings in the 1969-70 TV Season were reruns of the 1968-69 season.

    Back then, it was common for Saturday-morning cartoon shows to produce a grand total of seventeen episodes, which would be run six times over a period of two years. Some produced as few as thirteen episodes, which were either aired four times within a year, or eight times in two years
