“That’s Incredible”/Dynamite

I remember That’s Incredible, an early forerunner of 21st-century reality shows. The show ran on ABC for five seasons, from 1980 to 1984. That’s Incredible featured unusual human interest stories and investigations into alleged paranormal events.

I remember Dynamite, too. I am (just a little) embarrassed to admit that I was an avid reader of the magazine in 1977 and 1978, when I was between the ages of 9 and 10. 

Dynamite specialized in celebrity interviews and bios that were clean enough for elementary kids to read. That was no easy task during the coke-and-sex-fueled Swinging Seventies.
