TV close-up: The Hollywood Palace, October 25, 1969

How about something from this week's listings? We don't get to do this all that often, and it's always kind of a kick to find a show in its entirety from that particular day. Of course, if you have a boxed set of a certain series, it's pretty easy to find out what aired on that day; it's much more challenging when it comes to a special, a movie, or a variety show.

Here's a reminder of when ABC thought they'd found the next Tom Jones in the person of Engelbert Humperdinck, who'd had a big hit with "Release Me," had his own show in 1969-70 and on this particular night hosted The Hollywood Palace with guests Sid Caesar, Maureen Arthur, Mickey Deems, Nancy Ames, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Jack E. Leonard, and Lonnie Donegan, Worth a watch, don't you think?
