TV Tickets! A great gallery of tickets to TV show tapings, some going back to the 1950s. Includes some fascinating commentary by Mark Evanier.

On preview: painquale, explore the rest of the site.

I first encountered "ME" from his helpful and knowledgable posts at the TVBarn discussion group.

For anyone skeptical of how interesting it can be to look at old admission tickets: it's the stories he tells about each show, the stars, the studio, etc.

Set aside some time, though; there are 36 pages of tickets. And then you'll start exploring the rest of his site and ...

Also would've killed to see Soap...

Season 3 will have to calm my woes.
