This week, just for fun, we're going to showcase some bits of the original Dating Game with Jim Lange.
We'll start with this 1968 daytime episode. Future Dallas co-star Deborah Shelton has to choose from three bachelors, including Warren Entner & Rick Coonce of the Grass Roots. The band appear as a full unit at the start of the show, introduced by announcer Johnny Jacobs, and perform "Midnight Confessions". Rick & Warren play game 2.
We'll forego the rating this time, as we're doing this as a public service. I may be wrong, but the Grass Roots may've been the only band to actually perform on the show. The future "King of Pop", Michael Jackson, would appear 4 years later, that may be the only other musical connection.
