The power of the Internet never ceases to amaze me. While doing a routine search for Charo, I stumbled across Dave Michaels’ web site. Dave is a former news anchor and host who happened to work the pilot of the Charo show, which was to be a variety show vehicle for her. It didn’t get picked up as a series, but apparently the pilot aired late in the ’75-’76 season on ABC and did reasonably well. I sent Dave a nice e-mail and he was able to give me some facts on the show that are now on the filmography page in the Charo section.
Labor Day weekend is upon us. My friends and I have decided not to deal with traffic and are staging a massive non-labor day weekend. We’ll see how long we can hole up in the apartment before we have to call in reinforcements.
