#14470: JACK PAAR PROGRAM, THE
1964-03-13, NBC, 40 min.
Jack Paar, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Helen OConnell

 September 21, 1962 - September 10, 1965

Jack Paar elected to pursue a three year NBC series in prime time soon after stepping down as host of THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR (1957-1962). These broadcasts took on the form of a variety/talk show format. Each telecast opened with a Paar monologue. Also shown from time to time were personal home movies shot by Jack on various trips by the Paar family to Africa, Russia, and Europe. Jack's daughter, Randy Paar would often assist her dad narrating these films.  

Appearing with Jack were many of his old regulars from the TONIGHT SHOW including Alexander King, Oscar Levant, and Jonathan Winters. This 10 pm Friday prime time slot attracted many notable guests, including Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater, and Ted Kennedy. Also, given exposure were many young and veteran entertainers, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, Ethel Merman, Peggy Lee, and stand-up comedians, among them, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, Godfrey Cambridge, Jackie Vernon, Mike Nichols & Elaine May, Burns & Schreiber, and Dick Gregory. 

Impact appearances occurred introducing footage of The Beatles, prior to the group appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, and a young Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), singing and spewing poetry with Jack and Liberace. 

After three years (one and a half years less than his tenure on THE TONIGHT SHOW), Jack Paar called it quits and would prematurely retire from the business with the exception of producing and starring in a handful of Specials for NBC and accepting one brief return to regular television, for nine months, hosting an ABC late-night talk show, JACK PAAR TONITE in 1973).

Jack's guest is US Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Highlights include Jack's opening monologue, clips of John F. Kennedy news conference, Helen O'Connell singing "Hello Dolly," and introduction of Robert F. Kennedy. Paar signs off by announcing the John F. Kennedy Library will open a living memorial.

Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Guy Lombardo, Dave Garroway, Barbra Streisand, Kenny Gardner, Don Grilly, Lesley Stewart, Victor Lombardo, Helen OConnel, Tony Poncho, Carmen Lombardo, Lebert Lombardo, Petula Clarke, Beetles, 5th Dimension

  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").

At 11:30pm the broadcast switches to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC with Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians as they play many instrumentals leading us into a New Year and a New Decade. Instrumentals and vocal arrangements include:
 
"Let's Do it Again," "Jean," "Aquarius," "Lara's Theme," Muddy Mississippi Line," Humoresque," "Give My Regards to Broadway," "Tea for Two," "Tiger Rag," "Hail, Hail, The Gang's All Here," "You are my Sunshine," "Hello Dolly," "When the Saints Go Marching In," "You are my Sunshine," "Alley Cat," "The Tarantella," "Tomorrow," sung by Tony Poncho, "Powder Your Face with Sunshine," "Rampart Street on Parade," and "Auld Lang Syne."

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS:
After Midnight Helen O'Connell sings "My Way," "I'm All Smiles" medley: "Amapola," "Green Eyes," "Tangerine." "I Want to be Around," and "Who Cares."

Don Grilly and Lesley Stewart sing "Before the Parade Passes
By," "So Happy Together," "Goin' Out Of My Head," and "I Love You Baby."

Recorded with Pepsi Cola commercials omitted. Otherwise complete. 

NOTE: Of all of the New Year's Eve television broadcasts Guy Lombardo performed this WOR TV program is the rarest. It was never video taped or kinescoped by WOR. And, this show was the only time that an entire two hour block of time was created 
(1956-1976) for a Guy Lombardo New Year's Eve celebration TV Special.
