#14422: BARRY GRAY INTERVIEWS, THE
1964-02-10, WMCA, min.
Barry Gray, The Beatles, Howard Samuels

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.

Topic: Comments on the Beatles. Also, Howard Samuels on the current political picture.

           June 20, 1948 - May 30, 1971

ED SULLIVAN SHOW, THE, (TOAST OF THE TOWN)
Television's longest-running variety series. Originally, titled, TOAST OF THE TOWN, the name of the series changed on September 18, 1955, to THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW. Most remembered for introducing many stand-up comedians, and musical acts, including The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, The Beatles. 

 Most of the 1,087 broadcasts, encompassing 10,000 performers, have been archived. The major exceptions are the first half-year of shows circa 1948 of which a few kinescope excerpts survive.
 
The ED SULLIVAN SHOW was a spectacular show-case that for twenty-three years entertained the American family. In its prime, more than thirty million viewers, young and old, tuned in at the same time to view popular culture.  

The guests are The Beatles and the comedy team of Marty Allen and Steve Rossi. In the audience are boxing champions Joe Louis and Sonny Liston.

#14668: CAROL BURNETT SPECIAL: "BEATLES IN AMERICA."
1964-11-13, CBS, 28 min.
Carol Burnett, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Murray the K, John Lennon, Beatles, Sam Cooke, George Harrison, Murray Kaufman, Albert Maysles, David Maysles

A special Carol Burnett tribute to the Beatles which pre-empts THE ENTERTAINERS a weekly CBS variety Friday night series (September 24, 1964 - March 27, 1965). 

This air check contains only the first half of this one hour special. 

Carol introduces this little known program from her home, explaining a departure from the expected ENTERTAINERS broadcast and telecasting a surprise program confirming her adulation for  the Beetles. Carol Burnett narrates interesting Beatle transitional  information over footage filmed by Albert Maysles and recorded by David Maysles' appearing in  their direct cinema feature documentary, WHAT'S HAPPENING!THE BEATLES IN THE USA (1964) which was devoid of all narration. 

Included excerpts, interviews with the Beatles by Murray Kaufman,
the Beatles in their hotel room listening to WINS radio...Sam Cooke recording, other. We hear press interviews, interactions with fans, on the phone talking to the UK. At one  point Murray the K mentions to his WINS audience, broadcasting from the Beatles hotel room, to stay tune in 44 minutes for a WINS documentary special, Meet The Beatles (see ATA #699A).  

NOTE: A very unusual use of employing visual material from a  yet to be released USA documentary using ample footage and narration by Carol Burnett over it for this television broadcast special. The Maysles Brothers 83 minute feature documentary was released in the USA December 14, 1965, a month after this Carol Burnett Special aired on television. 

Assumption is that selling footage by the Maysles Brothers to Carol Burnett's production company from their documentary was a way of promoting the complete documentary about to be released. 

Possibly the reason why there is no reference to this broadcast anywhere including, IMDb, Internet, TV Guide, Ross Reports TV Index, TV Reference books or its listing not found in any of the  major entertainment museums, is that it was not a scheduled television program but a last minute preemption filling the regular time spot for THE ENTERTAINERS. 

A peerless audio air check.   

Contains a Marlboro Cigarette commercial.

#9474: KUP'S SHOW
1965-05-08, SYN, 32 min.
Judy Garland, Irv Kupcinet, Beatles, Jan Pierce, Jean-Pierre Aumont, Maria Pavasn, Dr. Eric Berne, Irna Phillips, Barbra Steisand

   KUP'S SHOW - 1962 - 1975 (Syndicated) 1975 - 1986 (PBS)

Chicago newspaper columnist Irv Kupcinet was first seen on local Chicago television and like David Susskind in New York (Open End), he hosted a talk show in 1959, "AT Random," that was open-ended.The program was trimmed to an hour when it went into national syndication in 1962. In 1975 the show was picked up by PBS and lasted for an additional 11 years. 

 “At Random” on WBBM, was a talk show that started at midnight and continued until the host and the guests-some of whom wandered by after their nightclub acts-ran out of things to say, usually around three in the morning. In 1962 “At Random” later became a more conventional, hourlong syndicated television show.
  Guests over the years included Richard Nixon, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Milton Friedman, Martin Luther King Jr., Jimmy Hoffa, Judy Garland, and University of Chicago president Robert Maynard Hutchins. What made the show work was Kup himself, says Todd Whitman, his producer in later years: "His ability to put together people from different walks of life, sitting back and letting everybody else intermingle. He didn’t hog the spotlight, hosting and guiding the flow or conversation as a common guy sitting and observing.”

Guests include Judy Garland, Jean-Pierre Aumont, his wife Marisa Pavan, Irna Phillips, creator of the soap opera, As The World Turns, Jan Pierce, and Dr. Eric Bene author of the book "The Games People Play.."

Judy Garland, who states her future plans are to keep on singing, candidly discusses her feelings about today's music and her dislike of the Beatles, her feelings about The Wizard of Oz, her childhood which was not a normal one, and her daughter, Liza whom she feels has a better singing voice than Barbra Streisand whom she does not care for. Garland comments on her cult following, and the fact that every time she goes on stage she has a case of "stage freight." 

Jan Pierce tells Irv Kupcinet  that he is developing a Peace Corp for entertainers. Irna Phillip discusses why censorship in Radio was greater than today in television, and Dr. Eric Berne author of "The Games People Play," states how most people are not truthful with one another. 

NOTE: A rare TV Audio Air Check. Sound quality has been improved by archivist Phil Gries as much as possible increasing its audio listening clarity  which had slight issues when originally recorded in 1965.

#15849A: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1968-06-20, NBC, 25 min.
Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Jane Morgan, Cary Grant, Beatles

         October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

A rare talk show appearance by Ed Sullivan who appeared only once before, briefly, with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show on December 23, 1966. 

The show celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Ed Sullivan Show. Ed McMahon introduces a Mighty Carson Art Players skit with Johnny imitating Sullivan. Sullivan becomes part of the fun by attempting to imitate Cary Grant. 

Ed remembers his first program, June 20, 1948 and mentions the guests on that debut show., including Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Oscar Hammerstein, Richard Rodgers. Ed states that he was "scared to death" performing out of his element at that time. He felt that his main talent was spotting talented acts and booking them for the show. Johnny and Ed reminisce about the Beatles, and Elvis appearing on Ed's show. Great memories. Carson shows Sullivan a clip of his first appearance on Ed's show              ( October 9, 1955).

Ed remembers his Moscow show in 1959 and states he and his wife Sylvia plan another trip there soon. Ed tells Johnny that he has had a good full life and has been blessed with no serious illness. 

Jane Morgan, who has appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show 45 times joins the discussion. She contributes anecdotes about appearing on Ed's show. Sullivan mentions that he never would know how his audiences would respond to certain acts, but always kept his sense of humor. Johnny mentions that Ed Sullivan has done more for performers careers than any other TV showman.

  Beginning in 1929, a New Year's Eve Tradition...Guy Lombardo & his Royal Canadians. Guy Lombardo was best known to TV audiences for his annual New Year's Eve telecasts, beginning on CBS TV December 31, 1956. His brothers Carmen (the band's musical director), Victor, & Lebert were all members of the orchestra. Guy, the eldest, was designated the leader. 
For most of his years in television, Guy Lombardo represented nostalgia representing the '30s and '40s. At midnight the traditional welcoming in of the New Year at Times Square is presented with Guy Lombardo doing a 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, countdown and proclaiming to all, "Happy New Year." 

Dave Garroway begins this broadcast at 11:00pm (aired only locally on an independent station) in a rare guest role doing "color commentary" live from Times Square on New Year's Eve. He appears on New York local television station WOR TV Channel 9 bringing in the New Year beginning at 11pm describing the New Year's Eve Times Square crowd, reminiscing about the decade of the 60's, while also introducing music from the past decade (The Beatles, "All You Need is Love," " Bobby Darin "Mack the Knife," Frank Sinatra "Strangers in the Night," Barbra Streisand "People," Petula Clarke "Downtown," 5th Dimension "The Age of Aquarius").

By," "So Happy Together," "Goin' Out Of My Head," and "I Love You Baby."

(1956-1976) for a Guy Lombardo New Year's Eve celebration TV Special.

David Frost's only guest this evening is singer Tony Bennett. 

Bennett sings numerous songs on the show backed by his own orchestra. They include, "Shadow of your Smile," "I Left My Hear in San Francisco," "Rags to Riches," "The Lady is in Love with You," "I'll Begin Again," "When You're Smiling," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "Theme From Love Story," others.
Bennett recounts the thrill of recording the theme from "Love Story" in England with a 107 piece London Philharmonic orchestra behind him. 

David Frost and Tony Bennett talk about a myriad of topics, including Bennett's childhood, growing up in Astoria Queens, his siblings, the different Nationalities in his neighborhood, which strengthened him as a youth, the 69th division army band he was a member, his very first  girl friend, who encouraged him to become a singer, religion in his youth as an alter boy, and an anecdote related to the first singing "gig" he remembers performing as a 6 year old when he and his brother sang at the opening of the Tri-Borough Bridge with Mayor La Guardia in attendance. 

Tony Bennett takes questions from the audience. He remembers Pearl Bailey giving him his first professional opportunities. David Frost reads a poem that Bailey wrote to Bennett called "TAKE TIME."

Additional anecdotes include Bob Hope who changed his marquee name to Tony Bennett and took him on tour, how Tony first was introduced to his signature song, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," and coming in second to Rosemary Clooney competing on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts Radio Program. Frost and Bennett view a clip from the motion picture, "THE OSCAR," in which Tony does a very dramatic scene. Tony discusses his dramatic acting ambitions, his penchant for painting locations where he performs all around the world, and his admiration for the music by The Beatles. Tony sings a medley of Beatle tunes. 
When asked by Frost who his favorite singers are, Bennett mentions, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra.

Concluding the show Tony Bennett dedicates to David Frost and sings, "Who Can I Turn To?"
