The Big Board / Re: Three On A Match/Personality Music
« Last post by Ian Wallis on March 23, 2023, 03:08:56 PM »
Does anybody know if Three on a Match had a second theme at some point in its run (likely near the beginning of the run?)

Years ago I traded for some themes and Three on a Match was one of them, but it wasn't the one that's on the circulating episodes.  The trader told me it was the show's first theme song, which I've never been able to confirm.

Just wondering...

It's one of those themes with no in-the-clear recording circulating, unfortunately. But of course, who knows who's sitting on what these days?  ;D
I've only ever read it as being by Bob Cobert.

The Big Board / Three On A Match/Personality Music
« Last post by steveleb on March 23, 2023, 12:40:10 PM »
So I'm a little stumped, inspired by the game show possible music that wasn't used on a game show.

I'm a huge fan of the content from The Athletic, which on Thursdays has a comedic-oriented basketball podcast called Point of Contention.  Frequently, they use music stings from eras of the past for commercial plugs that, in context, are hilarious.  Today these used a flute-laden riff that, honestly, sounds like it was from the same recording session from the theme that Uncle Bob used first on Personality! and, more iconically, on everybody's favorite, Three On A Match.

Was this indeed a Bob Israel/Score concoption or, like Sugar Lips, have its origins somewhere else?

Do any of you happen to know--and perhaps have a link to the theme in the clear?

Another question I wondered about just now, while watching an old episode:

Letís say youíve got a champion who needs three jokers to win the game and nothing else. While he doesnít spin them, he still manages to get a natural triple. Even though he canít win the game with that, would he have gotten the prize(s) for spinning it?
Exactly this situation happens in episode #498 of the CBS version (not rerun by GSN). Contestant lost the game but DID receive a prize for spinning the natural triple in "Famous Houses" on her losing spin.

Right?

I hope they can find a space for reruns.

(Kind of an interesting gauntlet of Master Minds, People Puzzler, Switch and America Says soon to be Split Second.

That is a hell of a time slot to plop your new game show into.

I saw that happen once.    The contestant spun a natural triple on her losing spin and still won the jackpot.    I distinctly remember the category was "Proverbs and Sayings".

Jim Peck, Marquette University anyone?
I did hear about him having an office job with MU. He did, however, stay in broadcasting: He hosted "I Remember" for Milwaukee PBS for many years, and also worked as a news anchor for WTMJ Radio.
According to his Wikipedia bio, Jim's first job after graduating from Marquette was as an admissions counselor; he may have been there for six years before his broadcast career began. And he worked in PR and fundraising upon his return there, which probably took advantage of his skills in working with the public.

Jim Peck also hosted the local daytime chat show Twin Cities Today--precursor to Good Company, don't you know--for a short time between his ABC games and Divorce Court. I always thought, "wow, Channel 5 must be a big deal!"

I think 1831 is the farthest they've gotten.
Honestly I didn't remember that.  Any idea as to when they got there?

EDIT:  Never mind--appears it was last May.  Completely missed them.  Hopefully this run will take us there and beyond.

I would assume so. Itís a legal spin according to the rules of the game.
