TV Thursdays -- 1975 John Denver Rocky Mountain Christmas Special

The John Denver Rocky Mountain Christmas Special originally aired on December 10, 1975 – 40 years ago today! The special comes off as a little bizarre at times, but very interesting. Denver was an extremely popular singer at the time. The video above is recorded from a repeat in 1977. It even includes commercials that were part of the 1977 re-broadcast! I find the commercials just as intriguing as the show – they really capture the era.
