  • I remember the Ralph Emery Show well maybe too well. I worked for The Nashville Network for 8 years in the late 70's early 80's we Broadcasted and taped The Ralph Emery Show every morning, along with Crook and Chase, Nashville Now and Pop goes the country.

    I can honestly say Mr Emery did not function well in the mornings until he got his coffee and cigar. But after he got his fixes he was almost bearable to work with :>)

  • I remember it too. That was what I watched in the morning when I was half awake before getting ready for school. I liked the chalk toss. You toss the chalk up and try to catch it in your pocket. We would try and do that and we would have chalk all over our shirt.

  • I do! Isn't this fun to remember even though it wasn't that long ago.

    What about "Hey, hey, hey" D.T. McCall & Sons?

  • Thanks for the memories, and thanks for sharing the video clip. When we lived in Shelbyville that show by various names was one of our favorites.

    Dianatn, Nashville Now was also among our favorites, and I sure do miss TNN.

    By the way could it have been David Enochs that sold the Rambler, or maybe it was Wilkins. My memory is not what it used to be.
