Dick Williams and his assistant (his wife, Virginia) did 1200 Magicland shows over 23 years, from 1966 until 1989. A lot of people in TN, AR, and MS
grew up watching Magicland. Back then, the TV signal was turned up a notch
Dick Williams made Memphis a fun place to grow up... they just don't have television like that anymore. I wish my kids could watch it now. -Terry
Magicland memories (Fan mail)
EVERYBODY in Memphis watched “Magicland with Dick Williams.” Mr. Magic ended
every broadcast with his “spocklike” four-finger trick (split them outward in pairs
into a Mr. Spock “live long and prosper” greeting, and then keep the middle two
together while the index and pinkie split outward…try it…it’s not that easy to do
70 times in a row…with both hands…). -Kerry
I just wanted to give my heartfelt thanks to the Williams. Mostly I want to thank
you for the show and all of the memories it produced. But the real reason I
wanted to say thank you is that while you were great people on TV, (I never met
you guys in person,) I have read that you were the nicest people off camera too.
Thanks for being great and thoughtful people that contributed a lot to the culture
and history of our home, Memphis Tennessee. -Clint
