Talley Trio and Jason Crabb: Searchin’

The Talley Trio does a great job on Searchin’ but when Jason Crabb takes the stage and when he and Lauren Talley both are featured at the end the song has an even bigger impact on the southern gospel fans at the concert.

Dr. Joyce Brothers: Boxing Expert, First TV Psychologist

Dr. Joyce Brothers appearing on the $64,000 Question in 1955.

Dr. Joyce Brothers celebrated her 83rd birthday last month. She is mostly known as a psychologist who appeared on many television shows and was a prolific writer having written many advice books.

However she was only known in 1955 as a boxing expert on $64,000 Question on which she won the top prize in the boxing category. She reportedly did not want to have boxing as her category but when the sponsors insisted on it she delved into boxing books and with her fantastic memory became an expert on boxing.

When the quiz scandals broke she insisted she had won on the level and after an investigation of her appearances on $64,000 Question it was decided that she had won fairly without any cheating.

The producers did attempt to oust her from the show but she kept on winning because they couldn’t trip her up because of her superior knowledge of boxing.

She claims to have been the first television psychologist when she had her first advice show on a New York television station and she had already earned her doctorate in psychology from Columbia University two years before her $64,000 Question appearance.

This very short clip from Happy Days shows Dr. Brothers making a blooper.

The following article gives more details about her life and some of her quotations:
