In 1976, Presidential press secretary Ron Nessen hosts the most publicized and criticized program in the (then) short history of “Saturday Night Live.” Due to a techniciansʹ strike, the camera canʹt move, so the show features more commercial parodies than normal. Among the highlights: Dan Aykroyd liquefying a dead fish in the “Bass-O-Matic '76”, “Autumn Fizz, the carbonated douche”, the “Fluckers” sketch in which jam makers suggest that with a name like Fluckers / Mangled Baby Ducks / Painful Rectal Itch / Monkey Pus / Dog Vomit / Fluckers…it has to be good, Emily Litella misunderstanding about about “presidential erections,” and the real President Ford uttering the opening “Live from New York.”

In 1985, Today in Days of Our Lives History: Bo Brady and Hope Williams had gone to England with ISA agent Shane Donovan to stop “The Dragon,” an anti-monarchist. (The storyline seems to be familiar to viewers who watched General Hospital four years ago with Luke and Laura going abroad with WSB Agent Scopio to stop Mikkos Casadine who threatene to freeze the earth, heck, for a while, I quit watching All My Children for four months for this copycat storyline?) After trapping him in the Tower of London, the Queen rewarded Bo and Hope by giving them a wedding. The historic part of this “Days of Our Lives” ceremony? It was the first set of soap nuptials for which fans could get tickets.
