This Day in TV History: Happy Independence Day!

BOTNS wishes a happy July 4 to all of our friends, with a special Independence Day greeting to all of us here in the U.S. of A.!

50 years ago tonight, the broadcast networks served up mostly reruns on Tuesday, July 4, 1972, but NBC came through with a holiday special: The Stars and Stripes Show.

The annual event took place in Oklahoma City, and BOTNS stalwart Ed McMahon hosted the 1972 edition, which offered appearances from Bob Hope and Kenny Rogers, plus athletes like Oklahoma native Mickey Mantle and Roger Staubach.
