There's Surviving Footage of this Fun Show, 25 March 2009

Back in the 1950's very few television networks preserved their live programming, as it was seen as "disposable", even when it featured major talent or won awards. While some shows were preserved at the request of the cast, and occasionally the networks themselves kept copies of major programs, but a lot of shows were just thrown away. I was curious if any footage from this show survived, when a complete episode appeared online. This episode, with Johnny Ray as guest, is very entertaining and worth watching for anyone interested in the history of TV. The guest sang several popular songs, including a spiritual number. There was also a "Guessing game" where the dancers did a style of dance, and the home viewers would have to guess the style dance they were doing correctly. In this episode the style of dancing was "Jitterbug" set to the popular instrumental "In the Mood". The pacing is fast, and the dancers are dressed elegantly. Overall it's an enjoyable show.
