Plot Summary

"Music Scene" was presented by ABC TV in a 45 minute format, Monday evenings 7:30-8:15, a unique time slot that pitted it against CBS' "Gunsmoke" at 7:30PM and NBCs "Laugh In" at 8PM . The series had several hosts including Paul Anka, Lily Tomlin, Groucho Marx and David Steinerg who often served as host, writer, and comedian. This series presented a wider variety of musical guests than did ABCs earlier series "Shindig(1964). The main theme, as with "Shindig" was the hits of the day. In that tradition, "Music Scene" featured such guests as Crosby Stills and Nash, Janis Joplin, James Brown, Judy Collins, and The Rascals as well as The Beatles' in the form of their 1969 video, "The Ballad Of John And Yoko" . Early Rock, Adult Contemporary , R n B and Country were also featured with the appearances of Jerry Lee Lewis, The Everly Brothers,Tony Bennett, Eydie Gorme , Lou Rawls, Jerry Butler, Sonny James and others Written by efffee@aol.com

Trivia The show began with six co-hosts (David Steinberg, Chris Bokeno, Larry Hankin, Paul Reid Roman, Christopher Ross and Lily Tomlin) who would also do comedic skits between musical numbers. This format lasted for 6 episodes. Beginning with the first episode in November, David Steinberg became the sole host with different special guest hosts. Unfortunately, this format change did not bring new viewers, and the show was canceled less than three months later. See more »
