Happy Smothers Day -- Again!

Expect to see this blog entry headline more and more this month, because my book manuscript on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour is due at the end of the month.

Please be patient, and picture me toiling away, like Bartleby the Scrivener, buried by piles of videotapes, books, articles, audiotapes, transcripts, notes and depositions. Every so often, when I'm on a roll, it's either impossible or unwise to stop. So here it is, another Smothers Day holiday.

I'll always do BEST BETS, but occasional breaks from the blog will help. And every day I pull this stunt, I'll post a new photo or other goodie, just to say thanks for your patience. Today's picture shows Tom and Dick appearing on The Jack Benny Program, before getting their own series...
