DON'T WORRY ABOUT A THING, PATRICIA WILL TAKE YOU BY THE HAND - 23/03/21

And on that same day in 1976, another miracle happened in France: the broadcasting of the 8 o'clock Games, created by Jacques Solness. Although he didn't win a Day time Emmy for his masterpiece, he too was called crazy, and many TV people waited for him to kick the bucket so they could dance over his corpse.

Among the guests were Dick Rivers, Gérard Hernandez, Juliette Mills, Micheline Dax and above all Maître Capello, thanks to whom I sometimes send you newsletters with no spelling mistakes.
