On My Mind's Third Anniversary

Can you believe it was three years ago when Booksteve told me about blogspot and used it to set up On My Mind? Now over 46,000 visitors later we are all celebrating 3 years on the internet. Frankly at one point I didn't know much of what to put on and almost didn't make it to the second anniversary. I don't know what happened but suddenly everything clicked and suddenly I have other sites like Comic Book Letterheads Museum ,The Picture Sleeve and Album Art Museum,For God So Loved ,Let's Rap With Cap!,Mail It To Team Up, Plastic Man Platitudes and Millie the Model. Now come on in and join the party. Booksteve is taking the coats and hats and talking about Robert Wagner's new book. Kent of Forgotten Hits is spinning the tunes in the family room.
I can't believe that all of the Monkees came. Peter, Micky, Davy and Mike are over by the punch bowl talking about their classic TV shows and music.
Well there is my wife calling us all to dinner. Hope you like turkey.

Video of the Week: Archie Live Series

Thanks to Pop Culture Safari I was directed to the above video at Classic Television Showbiz. Does anyone remember another Archie live series? It was in the 1970's and kind of a variety show but focused mostly on comedy. It was more like Archie's Joke Book on TV. If you know where there is any video on this please tell me and direct me to it. Thanks.

This Day In Music History: Elvis and Jailhouse Rock/Treat Me Nice

On this day in music history, October 21, 1957 , Elvis hit the #1 spot on the billboard charts with his double sided hit "Jailhouse Rock/Treat Me Nice." It was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller who wrote many hits before for Elvis.
Mr. Leiber said "The love songs were a great problem, because I really can't write love songs. But that was the least of it. I certainly would never have written a song line 'Jailhouse Rock,' for example, if somebody hadn't said, Look, there's going to be a big production number in a jail."

That production number became the highlight of his third film Jailhouse Rock. Elvis himself choreographed the scene. It is one of the best remembered scenes from any of Elvis' films. The movie also opened today and became one of his biggest films in his acting career.
