Sha Na Na

Sha Na Na was the name of a syndicated variety series that ran from 1977 to 1981. The show was hosted by the popular Rock & Roll/Comedy group of the same name and was among the most watched programs in syndication during its run.

The show featured the group performing hits from the 1950s and 1960s along with comedy skits along the shows nostalgic theme but with a modern day twist, with performances from that era's well-known acts as well as popular acts of the 1970s.

During the shows' opening after the cast and guests are mentioned Myers kicks off the show by saying "And now, here they are, all greased up and ready to sing their brains out, Sha Na Na!" while Jon "Bowzer" Bauman would close out each show by saying "Good night, and grease for peace!" with Sha Na Na singing "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight" as their closing theme song.
