Starting June 18 at 8 p.m., Uncle Floyd Vivino will show vintage episodes of his TV show online, via Zoom.
According to a message posted today on the comedian and musician’s “Uncle Floyd’s Garage Sale Music” Facebook page, “Every Thursday Uncle Floyd hosts a live screening of classic Uncle Floyd Show episodes and clips. These shows have not been seen in more than 40 years. Uncle Floyd takes phone calls and answers questions between shows. This is a live, online event held over Zoom.”
Tickets are $10.
“The Uncle Floyd Show,” an offbeat, low-budget show with goofy humor and frequently stellar musical guests, was shown from the mid-’70s to the late-’90s on various New Jersey and New York television outlets, sometimes with syndication to other parts of the country as well. Musical guests ranged from Bon Jovi to The Ramones, The Smithereens, Tiny Tim, Cyndi Lauper and Squeeze.
Vivino currently has an online talk show as well as a radio show that airs on WFDU (89.1 FM). For information, visit unclefloyd.net.
There are currently some excerpts from classic editions of “The Uncle Floyd Show” on YouTube. Here is one:
