Storyline

Live music and light comedy featuring singer Lanny Ross. For the first 5 months, a quiz segment was included where contestants attempted to determine names, places and events from a series of visual clues. In September 1948, the show switched to "Lanny's penthouse where various guests made an appearance and Lanny's "girlfriend" Eileen Baron would visit. In March 1949, the format changed to straight musical variety. Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>
