In 1955, “Golfing on The Honeymooners” As usual, Ralph has bitten off a good deal more than he can chew. Heʹs got a golf date with a big shot at the bus company in two days and he doesnʹt know a putt from a potato. Well, first things first: the clothes. Letʹs see, plaid pants, argyle socks, and a floppy Scottish tam with a little ball on top. “How do I look, Norton?” he asks. “Deee-vine!” enthuses his pal. Now itʹs time for the lesson. Norton reads from a manual. Address the ball, it suggests. Norton grabs a club, works his body like a double-jointed hula dancer, salutes, and shouts, “Helloooo, ball.” Hole-in-one humor.

In 1956, On “I Love Lucy,” special guest star Orson Welles drops by the club and levitates our favorite redhead, among other tricks. This day in 1985, Welles accomplishes a more interesting feat. “The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice,” a film noir-themed episode of “Moonlighting,” has Welles as host despite his having been dead for five days.

In 1973, “Tomorrow”, TV Talk Show, with Tom Snyder; debut on NBC.

In 1975, “Shaved Fish” album by John Lennon was released

In 1977, R.C., “You Light Up My Life” by Debby Boone peaked at number one on the pop singles chart and stayed there for a chart-torturing ten weeks, and you thought Whitney Houstonʹs 14-week streak of “I Will Always Love You” at number one was that bad.

In 1980, The Cars rack up their third straight platinum album with “Panorama.” Althought the album goes to number five, itʹs considered something of a let-down after the back-to-back smashes of “The Cars” and “Candy-O.” “Touch and Go” from the LP peaks at #11.

In 1981, “Mork and Mindyʹs Baby” When the irrepressible alien (Robin Williams) married his human ally (Pam Dawber) on “Mork And Mindy” and started a family, Mom was a little put out.

In 1985, “Moonlighting” Hosted by Orson Welles, who died just five days before it aired, this stylized, mostly black-and-white episode of “Moonlighting” blended the seriesʹ trademark banter and sexual tension with an unusual homage to film noir. In “The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice,” a visit to a once-hot nightspot prompts Maddie and David to dream their own versions of an old, unsolved murder. In Maddieʹs mind, her songbird character falls for Davidʹs horn-blowing charmer, who schemes to kill her husband; his version paints him as the innocent, framed by a conniving woman. In both dreams they make love, something that would remain merely fantasy for the characters for another two years.
