Alex Trebek filled in for a week as host in 1979, apparently after Chuck Woolery attempted suicide.

The original theme for Wheel of Fortune was called "Big Wheels" by Alan Thicke. It was used from 1975 to around 1983. The new theme song introduced, called "Changing Keys" and composed by Merv Griffin, debuted around '83, and is the more famous Wheel theme.
