"The Time Tunnel: A History of the Television Series," by Martin Grams, Jr.
A favorite television program, during childhood, was ABC's time-traveling series, The TimeTunnel, which aired in 1966 and 1967.
Martin Grams, Jr., well-known for the many books he has written about old-time radio and classic television series, has just brought out a book about The TimeTunnel; it is published by BearManor Media.
Two of the featured guests at this year's Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention (which is run by Martin Grams, and by his wife Michelle), will be the primary stars of The Time Tunnel, Robert Colbert and James Darren.
The convention will be taking place from August 9-11, in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

"The Lucky Strike Papers"--subtitled "Journeys Through My Mother's Television Past"--profiles such early network television shows as "Your Hit Parade" (also known as "The Lucky Strike Hit Parade"), "Kay Kyser's College of Musical Knowledge," and "The Freddy Martin Show."

Currently, he is the host of a weekly talk show on the Old-Time Radio and nostalgia-oriented Internet radio station "Radio Once More." His book about early television, "The Lucky Strike Papers," was published in December, 2007 by BearManor Media.
