#66: HERE'S HOLLYWOOD
1961-01-27, WNBC, 6 min.
Dean Miller, Charlie Ruggles

September 26, 1960 - December 28, 1962 

Dean Miller interviews veteran actor Charlie Ruggles. The only television interview Ruggles ever did aside from appearing on a This Is Your Life episode. 
Excerpt.

Here's Hollywood (568 broadcasts) aired as a half-hour interview program, weekday afternoons on NBC at 4:30pm. On October 2, 1961 the show was reduced five minutes giving way to a live news broadcast with Sander Vanocur which aired at 4:55pm. 

Here's Hollywood  was the leading daytime show for two years. It was the first TV broadcast of its kind, using two mobile vans equipped with 2" video tape equipment which traveled to the homes of celebrities...two locations each day, one star in the morning and one in the afternoon. Most of the interviews aired were ten minutes in length. Two different interviews comprised the full length of the half hour program. Occasionally, one subject would be interviewed for the complete program. Occasionally programs were produced outside of the United States...Hawaii, Germany, France. Five color broadcasts were attempted and then the concept abandoned, due to the complexity of 2" quadruplex video tape at the time.

Dean Miller conducted interviews from September 26, 1960 to September 29, 1961. He was replaced by Jack Linkletter who conducted interviews from October 2, 1961 to December 28, 1962. Joanne Jordan conducted interviews from September 26, 1960 to June 9, 1961. She was replaced by Helen O'Oconnell who conducted interviews from June 13, 1961 to December 28, 1962.

Note: Only a handful of the 1,100 different interviews survive. Most were erased, discarded, misplaced. NBC Archives have only two surviving kinescopes, one with Joe E. Brown (12-2-61), and one with Linda Darnell (12-4-61). UCLA Film & TV Archive has 46 different subject interview kinescopes on separate negative film and separate optical film. 

Archival Television Audio has 74 broadcasts on audio tape, originally recorded by Phil Gries at the time the broadcasts first aired. Most of them are complete interviews. These television Audio Air Checks represent the greatest number of known surviving HERE'S HOLLYWOOD broadcast episodes. 
UCLA FILM & Television Archives retains, in their vaults, the greatest number of individual original HERE'S HOLLYWOOD separate 16mm Kinescopes and coinciding separate optical and magnetic sound tracks, representing approximately four dozen shows. Almost ALL of these broadcasts remain in analog form, and not view-able as composite video and audio.

After the 1954-1955 season (one hour live broadcasts), Jackie Gleason produced a series of 39 filmed half-hour episodes of "The Honeymooners" which was syndicated (1955-1956). For the following 1956-1957 season, the Jackie Gleason Show returned to a live one-hour variety format with a Honeymooners sketch included in many of its broadcasts. After this season, The Honeymooners sketches would not be revived until the 1966-1967 season of The Jackie Gleason Show.   

Jackie Gleason criticizes and apologizes for his bad panel show, "You're In The Picture." He comments on the risks of theatrical productions. This show was canceled after its premiere episode.

#867: A 1960'S RADIO BROADCAST ADDITION: WINS ACTION ALERT NEWS
1961-02-04, WINS, 3 min.
Dick Waffle, Phil Gries

1010 WINS New York switched from top forty to the first successful all-news station in 1965. Only a few snippets of the first News broadcasts are known to exist. This rare audio was recorded by Phil Gries at 10:55 AM from his Brooklyn New York home on Saturday morning, February 4, 1961. 
 
Dick Waffle reports at the "Newswatch." Waffle reports initial bulletins reporting the blizzard of '61. 
This third "knockout" blizzard of the winter accounted for a 17 consecutive day of temperatures below freezing, the longest in New York history. We also hear the 1010 WINS sign off as the WINS announcer reports that the next news bulletins will be heard will be at 11:25 AM. 

NOTE:
The Blizzard of February 3 - 4, 1961

The storm, U.S. HEAVIEST SNOW STORM SINCE 1947 tied up the Northeast coast. It occurred toward the end of an extended cold snowy period that brought the temperature in New York's Central Park down to -2 (2 degrees below zero) on the morning of February 2nd. The storm reached blizzard proportions throughout much of the northeast and winds at LaGuardia airport gusted over 80 miles per hour on the 4th. Snowfall totals exceeded 20 inches over much of the region. Falling on top existing snow cover, including that left over from the "Kennedy inaugural" snowstorm on the 19-20th of January, the aftermath of the storm found near record snow cover over the region ranging from 2 to 2 1/2 feet in and around New York City up to nearly 4 feet around Newburg, New York. 

Snow began falling on the evening of February 3rd 1961, dumping six inches and continued through the morning of the 4th, with an additional 11.4 inches of snow piling up. The snow that fell on February 4th was heavy and wet and was driven by gale force winds. This was the third major snowstorm of the winter, following 15.4 inches on December 11th and 12th 1960, and 9.9 inches of snow recorded on January 19th and 20th. However, those storms were characterized by very cold temperatures while this storm saw temperatures rise from the upper 20's to the mid 30's during the afternoon of the 4th when the snow changed to rain. This was the second winter in a row to have two snowstorms of one foot or more.

Goateed composer-arranger Mitch Miller led the Sing-Along Gang, and on-stage aggregation of about two dozen. Among the featured vocalists were Leslie Uggams, Diana Trask, Barbara McNair, and Gloria Lambert.

Reruns were exhumed in the spring of 1966 to replace the faltering "Sammy Davis Jr. Show." Bill Hobin produced and directed the series.

For four years and eight months Jack Paar reigned supreme as host of the Tonight Show with a crew of regulars, but only two stayed with him for the entire run; announcer Hugh Downs and band leader Jose Melies, a former army buddy. Familiar faces who appeared many times with Jack included Dody Goodman, Betty Johnson, Elsa Maxwell, Alexander King, Genevieve, Jack Douglas; and wife Reiko, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hans Conried, Peggy Cass, Cliff (Charley Weaver) Arquette, and Johnathan Winters.

Arlene Francis, 30 times, Jonathan Winters, 26 times, Orson Bean, 21 times and Johnny Carson 15 times. Altogether there were 243 broadcasts that had substitute hosts filling in for Paar during Jack Paar's TONIGHT SHOW tenure. The title of the late-night broadcast changed to THE JACK PAAR SHOW which took effect on February 3, 1958. The first videotaped broadcast aired on January 5, 1959. "Best of Paar " Re-runs began on July 10, 1959. The first color broadcast aired on September 19, 1960.

#13526: BARRY GRAY SHOW, WMCA RADIO THE
1961-03-13, WMCA, 6 min.
Ed Sullivan, Jackie Kannon, Barry Gray

Barry Gray was an American radio personality, often referred to as "the father of talk radio." His late-night New York City radio talk show was carried by WOR radio and then later by WMCA.

Barry Gray returned to WMCA in 1950, and stayed there for 39 years, refining the talk show format still utilized today. During the 1960s, he was in the odd position of having an 11 p.m.-1 a.m. late night talk show on a station otherwise dominated by Top 40 music and the youth-targeted "Good Guys" disc jockey campaign. But for teenagers who kept their radios on into the night, Gray's show was a window into the high-brow New York culture of the 1940s and 1950s.

Ed Sullivan and Barry Gray comment on Sullivan's feud with Jack Paar. Additional guest Jackie Kannon.

#9441: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR, THE
1961-03-13, NBC, 21 min.
Jack Paar, Hugh Downs, Ed Sullivan, Jose Melies

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 

   Jack Paar speaks vehemently about Ed Sullivan continuously. He explains why Ed Sullivan refused to appear on The Tonight Show. Jack said that Ed wanted to use a teleprompter and to read a prepared statement. Jack said "any idiot can read a teleprompter" and continued to address other grievances about Sullivan. He ended his address calling Ed Sullivan a liar. 

NOTE: This broadcast is the only example of a JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW where Jack was a guest on his own show. Hugh Downs opens the 11:15pm opening segment as substitute host, and conducts the show for the first 15 minutes. Jack Paar is introduced at 11:30pm. He then speaks about Ed Sullivan continuously for 51 minutes, only interrupted for commercials. At 12:21am Jack finally finishes his emotional tirade, calling Ed Sullivan a liar!    
So angry was Paar that he left the show after his monologue, leaving Hugh Downs to finish the show. 

Archival Television Audio, Inc. has a portion of this memorable historic episode recorded on audio tape related to the never predictable host of The Tonight Show, Jack Paar.
THIS BROADCAST WAS THE HIGHEST RATED JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW aired during his for four and one half years as host.  

Occasional variations in sound quality.
