The Gale Storm Show - Oh, Susannah
14 May 2017 | by mcannady1See all my reviews

I watched this show in the late 50's when I was starting school. In first grade I developed a love for all of the characters. My favorite show of all time is now My Little Margie, but Gale Storm Show is a close second. The people, the classy acts and Gale's wonderful singing voice really made it superior.

In recent years, in 2005, I discovered Gale was going to be at a movie seminar that featured 50's and 60's greats. My husband brought me and after nearly 50 years, I finally met my idol! Jane Russell, Ed Byrnes, Noel Niell and Kathy Garver were some of the other greats, but Gale was the one I wanted to meet especially. I had been so inspired by her great personality and timeless quality. What a marvelous experience! After that, I joined the Gale Storm Appreciation Society and discovered there were many people who still felt the same.

Gale called me and I spoke to her often on the phone. We became great friends and she sent me a copy of her beautiful music CD on my birthday! What a wonderful and generous lady! When I was ill and having health problems in 2007 she was so kind and sympathetic. I was invited to the 50th anniversary of Oh, Susannah, a party that was to be held at Gale's home. Sadly, she was not well, and the party was cancelled.

WE lost her in 2009, and I will never forget how wonderful it was to meet her, and also the other wonderful TV shows of the 50's and 60's. It was a great time to grow up in.

Today I watch the show often. A very generous person, the fan club vice president, made me a copy of the episodes I was missing of the programs. What a treat! So today it is like the time never passed. My big sister and I always find time to watch Oh, Susannah or My Little Margie. Even my sons and daughter enjoy Margie once in awhile.
