Their were so many talk shows in the 1980s. It is hard to keep track of my memories of any of them. I can tell you that my Mom was on the Oprah bandwagon pretty early. I remember her watching it with some intensity and when I asked her what the show was, she said it is “Oprah”. That’s the total memory. Hearing that word spoken for the first time and not understanding if it was a name or something else. It was all so new and unknown.
