    Retro: Tucson and Nogales, Arizona, Tuesday, April 29, 1975

    Source: Arizona Daily Star

    It was on 30 April 1975, 29 April in the United States, that Saigon fell, ending the Vietnam War. Evening and some daytime network programs were pre-empted for special news reports about the developments in Vietnam and the evacuation that the American Embassy had organised from Saigon. As Iím going to be moving the weekend of the 29th, Iím posting the listings tonight.

    "All In The Family" still aired on Saturdays at 8 (ET/PT);
    it would be moved to Mondays at 9 in the fall in compliance
    with the family-hour rules. I've seen somewhere that KOLD
    carried Lawrence Welk at 6:30 Saturdays, which would have
    run over into "AITF"'s timeslot in Arizona.

    Yes, in the 1970s, KOLD-TV aired the syndicated Welk on Saturday nights--
    first at 7, later at 6:30 (then ultimately at 6, IIRC). The 6:30 and 7 airings
    bumped one or both of the CBS 8/7 hour shows to other nights.
    Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.
