It Was A Thing on TV Twin Pack (Episodes #67-68): Break The Bank & the Game Show Finales of 6/20/80 + The David Letterman Show

This week on It Was A Thing on TV we’re calling the Smithsonian and asking them to put this collection into the vault!

Mike, Chico and Greg first discuss the various game shows called “Break The Bank” Three completely different shows, one was good, one was basic and one was a mess. And how does one Mrs. Mickey Kennedy Branson play a role in this?

Also this past week marked 40 years since we saw the temporary end of three game shows, each of which would all return to the airwaves by 1987. It also saw the birth of a legend, though he would make his mark in late night. We look at the three NBC game show finales of June 20, 1980 and their replacement, The David Letterman Show in this timely installment of the podcast.
