Thursday, September 26th, 1974

I made it through Gym Day I suppose but I do NOT want to talk about it!

We didn't get to work 'til late tonight again. It was only me and Mom. Dad went to pitch horseshoes.

I heard "Paper Moon" on the radio at work.

Saw a great episode of STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO with Bill Bixby but we're already having TV problems again. Oh, well. Tomorrow's the end of another week.

NOTES: The late Bill Bixby was one of those few who could be termed a true television superstar. These folks couldn't get arrested on the big screen but rarely failed to please on the small. This rarified number includes folks such as Michael Landon, David Janssen, David McCallum and Gene Barry. Someday I should write an article about them.

David McCallum (Ilya Kuriacan from Man From U.N.C.L.E.) was a popular british actor who had been in many films such as "A Night To Remember" as the radio operator, "The Longest Day", and the memorable 1970s sci-fi movie "Hauser's Memory".
Gene Barry also had a few screen roles, but I recall seeing David Janssen in several leading movie roles as well. He was in several 90 minute Made for TV movies as well.

Watching the "Target:Red" episode now!

Was this night's episode of "Paper Moon" (Jodie Foster) simulcast on a radio station? Was "Paper Moon" referring to something else? Curious what you heard on the radio....
