Found this neat little TV guide booklet / supplement in a pile of old 70's magazines and newspapers recently. It appears to have been a giveaway to customers that shopped at Ward's Super Markets here in MO. It's full of funny little key art ads, articles, recipes, stories, and even crappy religious advice from somebody named Penelope. But of course the best part is all of that glorious 1974 television programming! Movies and tv shows, and lots of local fare that, even with a limited, minimal amount of channels, really made pre-cable tv days set surfin' something special.
Let's take a look at some stuff to watch, starting with this exact day in 1974 for example, December 28th: like how did we ever choose between Land of the Lost and Valley of the Dinosaurs both on at the same exact time on different channels back in those days? I barely remember. And the entire afternoon of movies on this one day alone is enough to boggle the mind into oblivion: Abbott and Costello, the Bowery Boys, King Kong Escapes, The Vikings, and The Cat People! Evening time is just as jam packed with goodness as Adam West stars on Emergency, plus City of Fear and then heading into the witching hour we still have The Mad Ghoul on our Tales of Terror horror host show!
Lordy be, how can you beat Sunday morning with a big block of Davey and Goliath, Underdog, Goober and the Ghost Chasers, followed by an afternoon / evening split with Charlie Chan and Tarzan, plus, Land of the Giants, Peter Gunn, and more! Let's take a look at what's on the rest of the week in our next post too by CLICKING HERE!
