Hello, hello all M&Ms. Welcome to your regularly scheduled Saturday night ONT here at the AoS mansion.

A Moment in Time: Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate on Playboy After Dark in 1968
Back in the late 60's Hugh Hefner had a weekly TV show that was supposed to show a 'typical' party at Hugh's place with playmates, celebrities of the day and various performers showing up and chatting with Hefner. Today the shows are a gold mine of groovelicious 60's retro goodness. Here's part of an episode from 1968 where Hugh talks with Roman Polanski and his wife, Sharon Tate. Within a year Sharon would be dead at the hands of Charlie Manson's gang and less than 10 years later Polanski would rape a 13 year old girl. You can watch the rest of the interview here.
