Today is Bob Newhart's 79th birthday. I couldn't let the day go by without good wishes for one of my favorite comedians of all time!
I was happy to find this album from 1960 earlier this year at a thrift shop. In my opinion, he is one the funniest men ever to grace the stage, TV screen, movie screen, radio, phonograph - whichever and wherever! I thoroughly enjoyed his sitcoms, as well. When "Newhart" was on in the 80's, I recorded MANY episodes so that I could keep them always. This was well before the advent of entire seasons available on DVD, of course! That's all right; I still have them - and they didn't cost me a thing. (Well, just the price of the video tapes.) I only knew that I loved the show, and I wanted to keep them.
A very happy birthday to you, Mr. Newhart - and thank you!
