1975 was a pretty good year for TV. Henry Blake on M*A*S*H dies in a helicopter crash (the character, not Maclean Stevenson). Saturday Night Live premiered and so did Ryan's Hope. RH didn't last very long but it was a pretty good soap.
1975 was a good time to remember. I was a Freshman in High School, and thought - just a few more years to graduate - am I ever going to make it? There were wonderful songs playing on the radio, and TV had some great comedies. The family would get together on Saturday night and watch Carol Burnett, Bob Newhart, and a few other comedies that escape me at the moment. Living it then, it seemed nothing special, now, looking back on it, I sometimes wish I could go back for just one evening!
