Words of Wisdom From

The Godmother!

Don't you change the dial..
"Don't you change the dial..."

"The Godmother" was a popular comedy segment seen almost weekly on NBC's The Bobby Darin Amusement Company (summer of 1972) and The Bobby Darin Show (Jan-April 1973.) Riding high on the success of the film "The Godfather," the segments consisted of interviews in a question and answer format with "The Godmother" (Bobby), "a noted authority on many subjects" by series regular Geoff Edwards.

Love, sex, marriage, money, child care.....no topic was too challenging for The Godmother, who offered "her" pearls of wisdom to the audience, in between "her" flirtations with "Cutesy Pie" (Edwards).

The writers of The Bobby Darin Show included Charles Issacs, Howard Albrecht, Sol Weinstein, Jack Manrahan, Don Sherman, Sidney Miller, Alan Thicke, Neal Marshall, Saul Illson , Ernest Chambers and Bobby Darin.

THE GODMOTHER: (Smiling, holding bomb) "Oh, Please stay tuned for the second half
of the show, yes you gonna enjoy it, I know it! And if you don't stay tuned, I know
where you live and I'm gonna come over an fix the ignition in your car!"

    THE GODMOTHER: Go ahead, more! I wanna hear more questions!

    Geoff: Alright, this is...

    THE GODMOTHER: (pinching Geoff's cheek) OH BELLO! Go ahead!

    Geoff: This from a woman from California, it's very serious....

    Geoff: "My son is a chronic bedwetter, what should I do?"

    THE GODMOTHER: Ah, and you say the lady lives in-a California?
