The Andy Williams Show was an integral part of our weekly viewing from the late 1960s into 1971. Every Thursday evening we used to watch the programme as a family. It was where we all first saw The Osmonds who appeared weekly almost as a house-band-it was where they got their first break. It was a classy show-I've noted the show in my Letts' School Diary in January, February and March, 1971 reviewing it regularly as good and once, as fabulous!
It was a variety show with an amazing range of guests, particularly singers and some zany humour-anyone remember the Cookie Bear?
We saw Ray Stevens sing Bridget the Midget and went out and bought the single.
May each day in the week be a good day
May the Lord always watch over you
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true
May each day in the month be a good day
May you make friends with each one you meet
And may all of your daydreams be mem'ries
And may all of your mem'ries be sweet
The weeks turn to months and the months into years
There'll be sadness and joy, there'll be laughter and tears
But one thing I pray to heaven above
May each of your days be a day full of love
May each day in the year be a good day
May each dawn find you happy and gay
And may all of your days be as lovely
As the one you shared with me today
May each day of your life be a good day, And good night.
