I remember those lyrics too!
23 August 2006 | by DaveZappaSee all my reviews

There must have been something enchanting about those lyrics and the whole air of adventure that surrounded the TV show "The Everglades." I wonder if the old shows are available anywhere? I grew up in Miami FL in the 50s and 60s and the Everglades were naturally a part of our lives down there. I remember watching all these shows on WTVJ channel 4 (the CBS affiliate back then) and WCKT (now WSVN) TV channel 7 in Miami, Florida. Then there was the ABC affiliate, on channel 10. They had a whole list of different call letters. This is from Wikipedia: "The station began broadcasting on August 2, 1957 as WPST-TV, as the second ABC affiliate in the Miami market under the ownership of National Airlines. Prior to this time ABC had been carried by WITV, channel 17. When the more powerful channel 10 came on the air, however, channel 17 quickly went out of business. In the early 60's the ownership of WPST got in trouble with the FCC and lost its license. L.B. Wilson won the right to start a new station on channel 10 which signed on just a week after WPST was forced to sign off. This new ABC station had the call letters WLBW-TV for the initials of its owner. In 1967, WLBW moved to its present studio facility location on Biscayne Boulevard. In 1969, WLBW was purchased by Katharine Graham. On March 16, 1970, WLBW was renamed WPLG, named for Katharine Graham's late husband Philip L. Graham." But I digress...

Honestly I can't remember for sure which network carried The Everglades, but memory tells me it was Channel 4 - the CBS affiliate. Then again it may have just been local (and not network) programming.
