THROWBACK: “god bless america sung by familiar faces”, 1970

and now, for something different. because i recently discovered this and have been completely OBSESSED.

srsly, how does this not have a wikipedia page? THE CHARACTER GEORGE CLOONEY PLAYED ON ER HAS A WIKIPEDIA PAGE. and, clearly, this is of greater cultural import. so we’ve really no idea of its origins, though presumably it was something put on by wayne and involving everyone contracted to whatever station this ran on and, if i had to guess, i’d say- since it wasn’t a presidential election year or the bicentennial- it probably aired on july 3.

but it’s a good reminder of the difference between History and lived experience. that as this was happening…
