This 1977 episode of Name That Tune is an eye-keeper. Karen Rockman won the Golden Medley the previous week, winning over $24,000 in cash and prizes. She's not done however, as she will play for $100,000 ($10,000 a year for the next 10 years) at the end of the show after she selects the mystery tune from the locked safe...I just hope the guard didn't forget the combination!
Before that however, a new game is played. The selected contestants are Richie, a security guard for an armored truck company, and he faces Joan, a dance teacher. Kathie Lee Johnson (a-la Gifford!) performs Sing-a-Tune in the second round. Can the winner secure a spot to play for $100,000 next week, just like Karen Rockman?

Carol Bawer vs. Hap Trout in this generic episode, or is it generic? The one with the most points after Melody Roulette, Tune Topics and Bid-a-Note moves on to the Golden Medley where they can be entered in the $100,000 tournament, but boy...I love the humor in this!
Annie Ericson and Michael Lagmay (previously on Face the Music face-off for the chance at $100,000, starting at Melody Roulette. 2 mishaps happen in Melody Roulette, one of which is a very memorable blooper. Remember, only one of these two players will go to the Golden Medley, where they play to hopefully get into the tournament for $100,000 in cash and prizes. Who takes it out and wins?
Finalists Les Gould from Los Angeles, CA and Stan Mysliwiec from Pittsburgh, PA take each other on to see who will win the $100,000 worth of cash and fabulous prizes. They face off at Melody Roulette and Tune Topics to get the competition started. In Bid-a-Note, Les seems to be a tad-bit overconfident, and in the Golden Medley Showdown, it really gets interesting. Who wins the tournament, taking home $100,000 in cash and prizes?
Richard Allegra, Carol Kline and Marty Perdeck faceoff to determine which two will finalize to play for $100,000. The two start off at Tune Topics, then go to Bid-a-Note, and finally the Golden Medley Showdown. Whoever nails the biggest number of points takes home the $100,000 loot. Who will it be?
