“Television: Rare and Well Done” Book Giveaway
Qualifying Entry Task for TWITTER Contest
As many of us Classic Movie and TV Fans know, Terence Towles Canote runs a fabulous Pop Culture blog called A Shroud of Thoughts – and he also tweets ‘classic’ information daily via @Mercurie80. Terry’s interests and expertise span a wide spectrum, from classic movies and classic television to classic rock, pulp magazines, comic books and more. He is quite a wealth of knowledge — so much so, that TCM picked him to introduce an airing of “A Hard Day’s Night” to their viewers a few months ago.
But that’s not all… Terry also wrote a book a few years back called Television: Rare & Well Done – which is a collection of essays about the 70-year history of broadcast TV, from America’s Golden Age of Television through the reality shows of today. And, now, I am happy to say that CMH will be giving away TWO copies of Terry’s book via Twitter this month!
Last, but certainly NOT least, I am even happier to say that Terry will be posting a series of articles right here on our CMH blog over the next few months — so please stay tuned!
