Hey pallies, a dude tagged Kelly has shared some Dinodevotion over at his swingin' bloggpad "The Sixties Beat." Clicks on the tagg of this Dinogram to goes there.
Obviously this guy loves everythin' '60's and certainly that era was stellar for our Dino....with our Dino rulin' the charts with his amazin' variety show. Hows I
wishes we could go back to that era when Thursday nights belonged to our great man and the greatest show that ever has or will hit the air waves....
Loves to see more and more pallies liftin' up the name of our Dino and helpin' others to know, loves, and honor our Dino. Dinodevotedly, DMP

Dean Martin Show
One thing that sixties television had that people miss out on these days is "variety shows"....meaning they had comedy skits, different guests each week, different musical acts, etc.
One such show I remember from the sixties was The Dean Martin Show.
I remember how he slid down a pole at the star of each show. The theme song was " Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime." And of course there were the "Golddiggers" (chorus girls....can't quite remember what it was they did....) the show started in 1965.
Wikkepedia states that Dean Martin was actually drinking apple juice and portraying himself as a lush on the show. Some names you might remember that were regulars on the show (I'm going to leave out a ton of names here) were....Joey Heatherton, Paul Lynde, Dom DeLuise,, Nipsey Russel,Nelson Reilly, Rodney Dangerfield, Les Brown (band leader), Foster Brooks and one of my all time favorite comedians, Don Rickles........bring back any memories?
