“The program you are about to see…well hear… is All in the Family. It seeks to throw a humorous spotlight on our frailties, prejudices and concerns. By making them a source of laughter, we hope to show — in a mature fashion — just how absurd they are.”

That was the disclaimer made before the start of the first episode of an early 1970s TV show where the main character is an obnoxious, prejudiced, big mouth, bigot, played by a brilliant actor, who actually was credited with bringing highly controversial subjects to light every week. But no matter what the subject, he was highly humorous. And millions laughed along.

The character and the show was the brainchild of a TV mastermind that we just lost last month at the age of 101.

So, Boy…get ready to hear the way Glenn Miller played, and songs on the hit parade, not really, there’s no music on this record, in Volume 159: Those Were The Days.
