36 was KICU? Dunno.

For a while it was "The Perfect 36" with Carol Doda doing promos. It made an impression on a young preteen male.... and later as a teen... :-)

Can't help you with the video. Sounds like a job for youtube.

I remember Carol Doda, the Perfect 36.
I think this was after she was the "mascot" of the channel.
They had great movies on at that time.
Sherlock Holmes theater, old sic-fi, bogart film festival.
I've tried searching and looking on You-Tube, but I don't have much to go on.
I just have a snippet or two of the lyrics, but mostly just the recall of "something".
Sure would like to know what that was.
I used to like TV back then, even with commercials it was better than it is today, or at least most of it.

They showed the Lina Wertmuller flick, "Swept Away" on channel 36 at about 3:00am back in 1979. What a shock that was for a college girl pulling an all-mightier studying!

That is such a great movie. I would not get much studying done if that movie was on. I remember seeing so many great movies back then ... the only price was waking up tired as heck the next day!
