Monday Musings for 12.28.20

 

Dear Friends,

The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour did not last long.  Just three seasons, 1967-1969.  Tom and Dick Smothers insisted on social commentary, not just comedy, which often ran afoul of CBS censors.

Those were some difficult years.  Especially 1968.

As we end our difficult year of 2020, I thought I would share with you “1968 in Pictures,” compiled by a man named Chuck Braverman.  At the end of it, Tom Smothers says, “I hope 1969 will have nothing but beautiful pictures.”

I hope the same for 2021.

In Christ,

 

John
