Blast from the past: It’s Mike Douglas on WESH

Our Sponsors

Blast from the Past features an icon of TV talk shows, Mike Douglas.

This ad from November 1965 touts Douglas’ show on WESH-Channel 2 as a “merry go round of mirth and madness.” I vaguely remember the Mike Douglas Show, and not sure I would use the words “mirth” and “madness” to describe it. But hey, I was only 9 months old when this ad appeared.
