Donny & Marie kicked off their iconic television show with their first ever episode on November 16, 1975. And what a resplendent episode it is, chock full of so many amazing bad apples. Your hosts Mark and Chris discuss all of the amazing (and, in Chris’ case, mind blowing) highlights: the Osmond brothers presenting a trippy (and hilariously costumed) performance of the song “Gotta Get Love”; Donny does a karate workout (!) with Chuck Norris(!!!!); and so much more. Please give us a listen and share the bad apples with us.
A special thank you to Dave Evans for not only the support but for providing a remarkable collection of Osmond classics to the public!
Christopher Hasler: VHS Rewind continues bringing on the Xmas cheer as we visit with the Osmond family circa 1976 and The Osmond Family Christmas Special. The gang’s all here including Donny and Marie and the other, less talented Osmond brothers (after spending an hour watching this show we still cant remember all of their names), even Mom and Dad Osmond join in the festivities (Mom Osmond even plays saxophone!). As an extra special present, the Osmond brood is joined by Andy Williams (of course) and the always incredible Paul Lynde. Join VHS Rewind for christmas carols, lame comedy bits, wacky fashion sense, bad comb-overs, and even a cheesy mustache, all in the inimitable Osmond family style..
