Stephen:

Seeing your "Man From UNCLE" reminded me that in an NCIS episode I saw tonight there were two things that were noticeable. One was Nina Foch played "Ducky's" (David McCallum) mother.

In another scene someone asked Gibbs (Mark Harmon) what Ducky looked like when he was younger. Gibbs answered "Illya Kuryakin."

I love inside jokes.

So many.

THE VOICE OF FIRESTONE. THE AMERICAN ALBUM OF FAMILIAR MUSIC , THE TELEPHONE HOUR, the one sponsored by Longines. Some of these may havr been only on radio.

Lucky Strike's HIT PARADE WAS ON BOTH.

My all time favorite TOWN HALL TONIGHT with Fred Allen was radio, only I think.

We liked some sitcoms but not the cannrd laughter, CAR 54 ALL IN THE FAMILY and some British like NO. HONESTLY AND MOTHER AND SON.

My vote goes to the Hit Parade before rock and roll noise, even when it had bands like mark Warnow and Peter van Steeden especially when the band was Al Goodman .... mel

* Through my entire adult years I was and am a devotee of the original and all spin-offs of Star Trek.

* By favorite again I assume you mean shows for fun and enjoyment, not necessarily for information like 20/20 or 60 Minutes.
