This was one of the last programs at NBC to convert to color. It was also one of last (if not THE last) non-news programs to be broadcast "live". It went on the air every weekday morning at 9 am (following the "Today" show) from studio 8G in the RCA Building. While the studio was being converted to color in 1966, "Birthday House" held court in studio 8H where Saturday Night Live
(1975) now lives. See more
