Ah, the voice of Jack Jones. Back in the day you'd find his record albums filed under the ignominious category of "Easy Listening". Whatever happened to him?

I recognize the names of most of those 70s guest stars in that particular episode but who on Earth was Brenda Sykes?

Love, love this song. It made my Saturday nights.

Seemed like an easier time, didn't it? I think the music reminds us of that.
She was a black actress who played a lot of parts in the eighties.

Oh, I haven't thought of this show in forever!! Such a late-70's kind of show...

Gee, whatever happened to the "young Katharine Hepburn" Lauren Tewes? Cocaine. Talk about overselling!

I did not ever watch THE LOVE BOAT or FANTASY ISLAND. I felt like five minutes of either and my brain cells started leaching away.

Never a real favorite of mine either. But the song is catchy. People older or younger than me at the time seemed to like it.

I actually enjoyed this show. Light funny fare. Not my usual cup of tea but I liked it.

I watched it, and I don't think my brain cells leached away or turned to mush. I always thought it was fun, and I watched Fantasy Island too, for the first season or two. I don't remember what this ran against in it's broadcast slot, but it must not have been anything I wanted to see.

IIRC, Lauren Tewes's husband had a serious debilitating disease and she quit show biz to care for him.

So sorry to hear that .
