I know I'm not new, but something I have wondered for years and never thought it warranted its own thread:

When did they go from using one piece of music during each showcase to utilizing several different cues in any one given showcase?

For as long as I can remember in all my years of watching the show, there have been showcases to feature more than one cue -- in the Barker days, this was particularly the case during certain skits or (sometimes, though not every time) when a car was revealed, although I don't know when they started doing this.  It's only been since the complete overhaul of the cues a few years into the Carey run that it has become standard practice to feature multiple cues within most, if not all showcases.

I don't know if this was ever answered, but why did they get rid of the head on shot during the putts in Hole in One?

I know it was the topic of many discussions (and a lot of Mike-bashing), but I have a theory.  The head-on shot can be very anti-climactic.  From that camera angle, one could tell almost instantly whether the ball was going to be close or not.  It's really a bit of a letdown when you can see immediately that the ball is going to miss badly - and you could see it immediately when it happened.

The side angle that is currently used may not look as good, but at least it allows the viewer to feel some suspense, as it is less obvious if the ball is going into or even close to the cup.  A badly hit ball, by way of the optical illusion of the camera angles, could still at least LOOK close, even if it is off by a mile.
