If it was 10:15 on a Saturday night in 1978, I know what I was doing:
“Theme From Fantasy Island” (Lawrence Rosenthal)
Yes, there’s a reason you don’t see Fantasy Island and The Love Boat reruns in syndication today: they’re terrible. Borderline unwatchable, in fact– unless you’re an eleven-year-old boy. Eleven-year-old boys like Barbi Benton.
Eleven-year-old boys even tolerate Bert Convy, as long as he is on-screen with Barbi Benton.
The first rule of The Analog Kid blog is that if you write about a song on the Analog Kid blog, you share the song on the Analog Kid blog.
