Trivia

Debuted on Christmas Eve, 1948 on NBC. Switched to CBS in October 1950 but would revert back to NBC in September 1955 until its final weekly broadcast on 12 June 1963. From time to time the show would return still bearing the title "The Perry Como Show", but, like the "Hallmark Hall of Fame", not as a weekly series. Perry remained quite popular and would continue doing irregular specials through 1966 along with his ubiquitous Christmas shows. See more »

Uncle Perry
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a native of Canonsburg, PA, the hometown of Perry Como. My mother knew him when they were children, and his sister, Venzie, was my mother's best friend the last thirty-five years of their lives. When I was in second grade, Perry came to Pittsburgh to broadcast his show from the Civic Arena. The morning of the broadcast, Venzie called my mother up to ask us to come over before school began. We lived next door to her at the time, and we immediately ran next door, only to meet Perry himself. When we addressed him as Mister Como, he told us to call him Uncle Perry. From that moment on, we always called him that. We went to the Arena that night and I saw my first television show, live.

It was one of those childhood memories I will never forget. Thanks, Uncle Perry.
