For those of us old enough to remember the innocence and bravado of those halcyon days.....and the shows that depicted that life.     

Many memories watching this with my parents.....

and later Adam 12. 

One of the good guys.   


And yes that '58 Vette was awesome.

Good post, B2. Sure I remember him and Route 66. Not so much Adam=12. He had a bit part in "Mr. Roberts" as the SP guy who brought the drunken sailors back to Henry Fonda.

Only saw Route 66 years afterwards in reruns and liked it. Weird that yesterday I watched the Globetrekker traveling on Route 66 and later the Great Food Truck Race which is taking place n Route 66 this season.

Just curious, how is this about Food & Drink?

Seems to me it is about an actor.  If I am mistaken, I would like some background rather than having to read an article I am not overly interested in.

I don't think that the message had anything to do with the forum topic (which is par - hence my comment).  But who knows - maybe in some convoluted way I am wrong.

Yes, the SP from Alabama, the dialogue as I recall,  "Well, what we call in Alabama-- We call it the same thing in Nebraska."  If you served in the Navy you have to love the liberty scene.

Route 66 was a TV series (October 7, 1960 - March 20, 1964) that ran for 116 episodes on CBS, ... long before your TV days.

Odd coincidence....the songwriter of "Get Your Kicks on Route 66" was Bobby Troupe.  He was a musician and actor who eventually played a doctor in the NBC series "Emergency"

"Emergency" was produced by Jack Webb, the producer of "Adam-12."  The two casts of crossed over into each others shows so the actor from "Route 66" was in the same episodes as the song writer of Route 66.

if you understood the show you would know.....lol.   

But frankly, no real other place to put it without bringing out the thought police, so I put it here....for congenial conversation.       Since its not Sports and its just a way for Fordham faithful to remember the days of wine and roses.....especially before Vietnam and before the JFK assassination.

Food & Drink- I'd head to the candy store get a bottle of Mission Cream Soda 15 cents, pretzel rods 2 cents, 3 for a nickel- I was all set to hang with Buzz and Todd they were boss. BTW you got 3 cents back when you returned the bottle. Go Rams!

There is a fabulous History Channel Documentary on Modern Marvels, the construction and creation of Route 66, which depicts the entire project, its many iconic foodstops, towns, and Americana.

For history buffs, its a must.....especially American History buffs.     Powerful stuff there.   

   

Its a lengthy program but fabulous.   

Btw, the theme song from the television show was different than the song about Route 66 itself, which I imagine was a copyright infringement matter and decided not to play it.     

Another iconic song......

He was in a bunch of movies, never as the star, but acted with some of the legends of the screen . . . Life with Father, Sands of Iwo Jima, Dial M for Murder, Mister Roberts, The Long Gray Line, Gunfight at the OK Corral and others which, if not great, were watched repeatedly on Million Dollar Movie.

Quite a career.

If "no other real place to put it", then don't put it on this forum.  Fairly simple in my eyes.

Your youth and eastern bias are showing.  Evil

 Its about food, travel, americana.....like this thread is about.  Watch the videos.     Learn something.    And is about a movie and television star who delighted many people.     

I think it works here just fine, thank you very much.    And its relevant to a lot of the old timers on this board.

Asking a question... travel and americana - yes.  But where does food come into the show?

The best versions of this classic song are either Asleep at the Wheel's studio version, or their first live version.
