I am Beverlee Brown, the Beverlee, of "Beverlee & Sidro with the Sneakers", guest starring with Rock Hudson on this
episode of the show.
I have tried for years to obtain a copy of this episode, as no one had the capability to record the show back then
.....we just watched it on TV, along with everyone else. I discovered your CTVA website only today, and finally felt
that there might be some hope for me in my search.
We were featured on another episode of the
Jim Nabors Hour #24  16-Mar-1970 , guesting with Daryl Lamonica &
Roman Gabriel. I am attaching some photos of episode 
#17
(myself & Sidro with Rock Hudson, in "The Minstrel Show") as well as episode
#24  16-Mar-1970 (I'm the one with all the legs).
Please at least respond with some information or whatever advice you can give me in this matter.
Thanks So Much, Beverlee Brown, Chama, New Mexico, USA <bevybh@aol.com> (Oct 2011)
