The road is bending up ahead....



Does anyone else remember On the Road with Charles Kuralt?  I so loved and enjoyed watching it when it was on, but I cannot remember if it was a show by itself or if it was part of a news show.  I have gotten a couple videos from Netflix of On the Road and have just sat and enjoyed every minute of them.  Just hearing that introduction takes me back to another place and time.  How I wish we had a show comparable to this now.

I chose the first video above because it has the theme music..and I chose the last one because it is a typical example of his Kuralt's On the Road episodes.   They just always leave me with such a good feeling.




Sit back, relax and enjoy seeing the better side of humanity. It is such a refreshing change from all that is on the news right now.

CBS brought back Steve Hartman and he does a little tiny piece about 5 minutes long on each Friday show on the news at 6PM. I love his stuff and joined his facebook page where he tells what he will be talking about. He doesn't have the voice for telling things like Charles did, but some of the stories will bring a tear to your eye. I read Charles book and it was wonderful. Miss that kind of show.. I really do.. it was what was good about American and it's people.

Yes! I watched it at times. And I believe it was a complete show all on it's own. It was about a kinder gentler time...

Kuralt had the best TV/Radio voice.
He found interesting people and was truly interested in them.
The lady flying the plane was a hoot wasn't she!!!

i don't remember the show. we did not get TV until 1960 and rarely watched it. when i got married and had the two little ones, we had a tiny little black and white until about the late 70's and i hardly ever watched it. the kids watched Saturday cartoons on it.

Good Morning Rose...thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog and I have to say there is an abundance of old barns here in Maine and I love capturing them all.

I do remember Charles Kuralt and what wonderful and inspiring journalism...something that seems to be totally lost in our media today. It truly is refreshing to watch him and to see humankind at it's finest. He was an extraordinary journalist and something I miss too very much. Thank you for sharing.

I do remember this show! He had such an engaging speaking voice. I can't remember them all, but I watched a lot of them.

I have never seen this show before. But we used to have one here called On the Road Again. They are entertaining to watch.
