I am an 18 year old girl who is sick and tired of being surrounded by kids my own age who don't know basic american culture. So it is my mission to change that and introduce them to the oldies. Welcome!
A GREAT scene from one of the best children’s show of ALL TIME. Kukla, Fran and Ollie.
A great classic oldie for all generations, young and old could enjoy this! Definitely a laugh out loud show. Kukla, Fran and Ollie was started in 1949 and ran all the way into the mid 60’s. The show never lost it’s humor and the cast never lost the magic.
Jack Benny and Frank Nelson in a skit on the Jack Benny Program.
Jack Benny was an amazing Comedian, widely recognized as one of the leading American entertainers of the 20th century, Benny played the role of the comic penny-pinching miser, insisting on remaining 39 years old on stage despite his actual age, and often playing the violin badly.
Shirley Temple singing “When I Grow Up”. Shirley Temple, an American film and television actress, singer, dancer, autobiographer, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. She began her film career in 1932 at the age of three, and in 1934, skyrocketed to superstardom in her movie “Bright Eyes”
Ella Fitzgerald was a popular female singer of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s era. One of my favorites, Tisket a Tasket was her first single recorded at the age of 18. This was of course a later version.
Dubbed “The First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. In her lifetime, she won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums.
A scene from the 1969 movie “Hello Dolly”. Although it doesn’t exactly qualify as an “Oldie” it is a very important movie. For the simple reason of an iconic scene with both my favorites Barbra Streisand and Louis Armstrong. The song is not only sung with such a beautiful voice but I put this in here simply for the reason most younger people have no idea of this movie and it’s sad because Barbra is now becoming an unknown among the younger generation. Something we can’t let happen!
