What Should You Expect from the Oprah Winfrey Show?


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.

    Who would’ve thought what an empire Oprah would become! I still laugh about the time when Oprah was introduced to Uma,lol (the Academy Awards I think it was?)
