Today is special day for our friend Ralph Senensky. If you visit this space regularly, you know that Ralph is a former television director of some note as well as a blogger and an occasional commenter here. Today is the fiftieth anniversary of Ralph’s debut as a television director. On October 16, 1961, he stepped onto the set for the first day of shooting on his first television episode, a Dr. Kildare called “Johnny Temple.” Congratulations, Ralph!
As it happens, today also marks a milestone for the Classic TV History Blog. WordPress tells me that this is my 200th post. It’s been almost four years, and I haven’t been cancelled yet! This seems like a good time to thank everyone who reads this blog, especially the subscribers and the commenters. If you didn’t keep coming back, I wouldn’t bother. There’s still a lot of television history to cover, and I guess I’ll keep doing it for a while longer.
