RIP BARBARA MCNAIR

Hearing of Barbara McNair passing this week brought back a bunch of UHF memories. She was the first African-American woman to host her own variety show. I don't think I can ever think of her without thinking of constantly trying to adjust the big O antenna to get rid of the ghost images that would haunt our black and white television set.

It's fabulous to see this color... and it's a terrific medley.

Love that look. So crisp, so clean.

I don't know about that outfit..looks like something Bob Mackie would have designed if given the carge to come up with a groovy evening gown for modern, sexy, shapely nuns.
