Television in 1967 had two distinct masters to serve, and bridging the generation gap often resulted in strange bedfellows (talk about mixing metaphors!)..think Frank Sinatra doing the Twist..stuff like that. Anyway, ABC used their Stage 67 anthology series to present this tribute to the music of Rodgers and Hart, featuring Bobby Darin as host/performer, and sharing this non-stop variety show included The Mamas and The Papas, The Supremes, Petula Clark, Count Basie, Peter Gennaro and the Doodletown Pipers (I have never typed "Doodletown Pipers" till now...). Music of "the parents era" performed by somewhat "contemporary" artists so as to appeal to "the teens" as well as Mom and Dad. A thrill for Darin fans to see Bobby as front man, doing a number with Diana Ross and the girls.
