Another Anniversary of Note

While Abbey Road’s release was an occasion worth mentioning, one of the most entertaining, innovative, seminal and ridiculously influential TV shows in the history of history, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” debuted on BBC1 Monday, Oct. 5, 1969, at 10:55 p.m.*

Growing up in the late 70s and early 80s, the comedy powerhouse of WNED brought Friday night as a must see tv with an episode of Dave Allen, a Fawlty Towers, but it was a night primarily for Python.

I think both my Dad and younger sister can still quote this one line for line.

I know I still can. I think I might have done my job as a parent when my daughters wanted to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail recently.

Let’s wrap it up with some music.
