After Midnight or Between Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd!!
A Fortunate series of events. Some of us have a difficult time getting to events. For me it's mostly the timing. The over-lapping with my work hours. This is a continuous series of events that take place After Midnight...
LOCATION: Long Island Welcome Center just off the LIE, between Exits 51 and Exit 52 on the East Bound side.
TIME: 12:30 am or Half Past the Midnight Hour to 1:30 am THIS IS FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY MORNING TO BE CLEAR!!
There's a Chill in the air!! Fall is coming to an end and leaves are dropping. Halloween 2019 is in the books. Pumpkins, Corn Mazes and hay rides are still around. But holding on by a thread. As November comes to a close, we all know what that means. Turkeys Away!!
The day's are shorter. The night's longer. Kid's are ready to take a break from school. AGAIN! The Clocks have been turned back an hour. And hunting season has begun. It is also the time of year that reminds me of the old TV show WKRP in Cincinnati. The Thanksgiving episode, Turkeys Away!
When WKRP in Cincinnati aired its seventh episode more than 41 years ago on October 30, 1978, no one had any idea the new series would become part a of television holiday history. And they didn’t even have to use any actual turkeys to do it. “Turkeys Away,” was a Thanksgiving-themed entry for the sitcom about an Ohio-based radio station and its eccentric staff. For a holiday tie an anecdote heard from Atlanta, a radio station had once arranged a publicity stunt in which a number of turkeys were thrown out of either a helicopter or a truck—the exact details are lost to time—and proceeded to horrify the gathered crowd with an unintended turkey massacre. This was thought to be a fine premise for a show. As explained to the Classic TV History blog in 2012, the incident morphed into a plot in which station manager Arthur Carlson (Gordon Jump) arranged for an equally misguided stunt, where broadcaster Les Nessman (Richard Sanders) narrates from the street in a style reminiscent of the Hindenburg disaster. Nessman’s growing horror as the birds fall “like sacks of wet cement” to the pavement below was inspired by watching footage of the accident prior to shooting the show. You’ll have to watch the complete episode to fully appreciate the payoff—including one of the most often-quoted closing lines in sitcoms—but know that no turkeys were actually harmed.
Come join us for another After Midnight Event for late Fall of 2019!! EVERYONE WELCOME!!
