Song #477: "The Press Your Luck Theme" (circa 1983)

The concept of this game show was originally used in the latter part of the 1970's on ABC's "Second Chance" with host Jim Peck, but enjoyed a better second run as "Press Your Luck" on CBS as "devils" became "whammies".

Add a rotating stage and the ever-present "no whammies, big bucks....STOP!" mantra, and it was must-watch TV at 10:30am in high school, when you weren't in school, of course. (Hello, Christmas Vacation!!)

Enjoy the first of several game show themes that are part of the Rob Witham 500!
