Although relatively unknown in the United States, English broadcaster Des O'Connor was the star of this American summer variety series, which featured plenty of music, sketches with partner Jack D. Douglas and, in its second season, plenty of sex appeal with new regular Connie Stevens. Written by

This was a pleasant little hour-long variety show from the UK that aired for a couple of summers in the early seventies on US network TV.
Things I remember:
Des O'Connor, a very engaging personality, midway through a song inviting his audience to "sing to Desmond."
I Say I Say I Say: A rapid fire series of setups and punchlines delivered by regulars and guests as they stroll through a set; each humorous exchange began with one passerby accosting another with the words "I Say I Say I Say..."
I'd love to see a rerun of this show, haven't see Mr. O'Connor in 30 years, though apparently he's continued to enjoy a long career in the UK.
