What with Jason just getting "Carnival of Sound".... and talking all about it again, I have put it on today and listened to the whole thing. 

In the liner i notice, what I feel to be, a mistake.

Page 18


" 1966
March 31, 1966  .........

Following abortive film and television projects ( Easy Come, Easy Go and Jan & Dean On the Run ), Jan Berry returns to what he knows best:  the recording studio..... "

( since my point is about "Jan & Dean On the Run"... i write on this thread )

A person might take this just as a remark made given the fact that eventually Jan & Dean's tv show was not followed through with as planned for ABC due to Jan being hurt April 12th; however, the day that the liner note is actually citing:  March 31, 1966-- the tv show could not accurately be described as "aborted"...correct?

...writing, on said day, that Jan,  "following abortive film and television projects"  "returns to what he knows best:  the recording studio"

...gives all readers the full impression that the tv show has become a "failed" project. 

This is not true --  The tv show was not "aborted" at this point in time.  In fact ( isn't it? ), the TV show is in full swing and very much anticipated....

And I bring this up because it's important that their upcoming tv program not continue to be overlooked and continue to be lost, in accounts, just as the Paramount movie facts have been lost  -- ( nearly ), when it ONLY ended due to the terrible train accident. 

When it's written about this way, any hope for it's true place being well known is diminished.  It was a HUGE coming event for Jan & Dean and for us...the fans.

It was shot in February . . . probably in post-production in March. It never aired, and needs to see the official light of day.

The liner note is written in a "log" form....

QUESTION posed:

March 31, 1966....was "Jan & Dean On the Run" an aborted project?....as the "Carnival of Sound" 2010,  liner indicates?

Or, in fact....is "Jan & Dean On the Run" a tv pilot episode, (post production pilot) leading the way for an anticipated....slated.... fall television, ABC series on the date March 31, 1966?....interrupted only by the accident Jan suffered April 12th?

The pilot sold . . . and presumably would have aired if the accident had not occurred . . . (barring any prohibitive circumstances we're not aware of).

Thus, it was aborted by the producers (20th Century Fox / Ashmont) and the network (ABC).

There's only a 12-day difference between the date you're citing and the accident (which was the deciding factor). In the grand scheme, and from a current perspective, it's easy to say "abortive" on March 31.

But you're right . . . the show had a green light, heading into early April.

....AND for ABC - Twentieth Century Fox - Future Fans

So....from "On the Run" to "On the Road"
....even though most of us have heard and seen these interviews....it's for any newer fans coming this way ...besides, even some of us "vets" wanna see and hear them again ...and again

Jan and Dean Come Back!! (1978 rare interviews)
