CHANNEL 5 - PEOPLE ARE TALKING
'People Are Talking' sampler of show about 60s style, fads and fashions, dated August 1990. This was one o f the last shows in Channel 5's live 'People Are Talking' series. As I remember, the show received great reviews and ratings for several years, but later suffered during the station's reorganizing line up.
Following are a few introductory comments, taken from my tape of the show. All guests were American and many were bi-coastal. All panel members were involved in the alternate culture and artistic communities at some level.
Teaser: Are the sixties back in vogue? A look back at outta-sight fads and fashions of the sixties as Jennifer Montana co-hosts 'People Are Talking' today at ten.
Ross Magowen: It was a time that set trends for years to come in this country, trends that a lot of people say are surfacing today more than never before.
Jennifer Montana: On the next 'People Are Talking' - are thee 90s going to be a flashback of the 60s? We'll ask some former flower children, and take a look back at some current fashion chic.
