#7461: VOICE OF FIRESTONE
1958-10-27, ABC, 00 min.
John Daly, Alfred Drake, Doretta Morrow

September 5, 1949-June 7, 1954 (NBC); June 14, 1954-June 16, 1963 (ABC). This was the first broadcast of the season. "Voice of Firestone," which began on radio in 1928, was a Monday-night perennial for more than two decades before coming to television in 1949; for the next five years it was simulcast on NBC radio and television, until a dispute between the sponsor and the network over the Monday time slot led Firestone to shift the program to ABC. The half-hour musical series presented all kinds of music, but emphasized classical and semiclassical selections. Each week a guest celebrity was featured, and for many years the principal guests came from the Metropolitan Opera Company. The Firestone Orchestra was conducted by Howard Barlow, and the show was hosted by John Daly during its years on ABC; Hugh James was the announcer. "Voice of Firestone" was seen as a series of specials from 1959 until 1962; it returned as a weekly series in the fall of 1962 for a final season (September 30, 1962-June 16, 1963).

Jack Paar, Alexander King, Fred Demara, Billy Graham, Fidel Castro, Earl Grant, Marion Marlowe, Jose Melies, Ed Reimer, Virginia De Luce, Bob Crichton, Jimmy Hoffa

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 

Announcer Earl Reimer who subs for Hugh Downs, opens the show.

Jack comes out on stage and immediately states that he always seems to be in his dressing room writing at the last minute.
Jack tells true story that once he shared a dressing room with a star cowboy who wore the most expensive clothes he had ever seen. When the star took off his costume Paar noticed that he was wearing the most ragged underwear he had ever seen!

Jack mentions that last nights program, with Bobby Kennedy, was the most exciting show he has ever done in the two years that the Tonight Show has been on the air. Second and third most memorable shows were with Fidel Castro and Billy Graham. Kennedy stated on the show that it was time to do something about Jimmy Hoffa. 

Bob Grant is on next but Jack for a second cannot remember his name, which brings up a memory when he could not remember guest Marion Marlowe's name and had to stall for quite some time on live TV until someone could help him out. 

Earl Grant sings "Gave Birth to the Blues."

Jack recounts the time when his daughter Randy's pet gold fish died. Jack gave it a proper burial. He wrapped the goldfish
in saran wrap, followed by a layer of silver foil and all placed into a match box. Wife Miriam, accompanied them to the backyard for a proper burial. Randy said,
 "I'm sure he will survive before the ants get him." 

Bob Crichton, author of "The Great Imposer" discusses his book.Fred Demara makes a rare in person appearance. They all discuss his remarkable career impersonating ever conceivable type of professional individual and living the part. Favorite impersonation was that of a Texas warden. Demara states that there was no justification for what he did. Fred states that he is now ready to end his impostor career. 

Jack introduces Alexander King who discusses his new book, "May This House Be Saved From Tigers." Jack states what a warm and personable man King is who says that he believes in LOVE.  

*Most of this series does not survive in any broadcast form. Kinescopes were discarded, burned, decomposed...whereabouts unknown. 2" Quadruplex Video Tape was expensive ($300 for a one hour reel), weighting 26 pounds, requiring great storage space. Video Tape could easily be erased and was used for new program recordings...retained briefly for a re-run and then erased or discarded. Legend has it that even Jack Paar himself hired a junk man to come to his home garage and paid to have JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW recordings discarded (reels of kinescopes and video tapes) that were now cluttering up his space. 

During this era in television history archiving television programming was not a primary concern or vision, and considered an arcane pursuit. 

ARCHIVAL TELEVISION AUDIO, INC. retains over 70 complete and excerpt JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW air checks (34 hours), including the complete Jack Paar's first anniversary telecast which was broadcast live from Havana Cuba (June 28, 1958). These originally recorded off the air pristine sound direct line 1/4" reel to reel audio tracks, recorded at the time of the original broadcasts, represent the only broadcast record of a "lost" visual telecast. ATA is the largest single repository (one collection), in the United Sates of Jack Paar Tonight Shows recordings. The combined archives of The Library of Congress, Paley Center for Media, and UCLA Film & Television retain a composite total of 13 hours of representative JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts excerpts, all KINESCOPES (sound quality inferior to originally direct line 1/4" reel to reel home recordings at the time of the broadcast). No COMPLETE intact visual and audio broadcasts survive. There are no extant video taped surviving RECORDINGS of the JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW...not even an excerpt. 

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 Melis, 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 Conreid, Peggy Cass, Cliff (Charley Weaver) Arquette, and Jonathan Winters.

 Hugh Downs substituted for Jack Paar 79 times, more than any other substitute host. There were 20 different substitute hosts for Paar over the period of the series run. Joey Bishop substituted for Paar 31 times. Arlene Francis, 30 times, Jonathan Winters, 26 times, Orson Bean, 21 times and Johnny Carson 15 times. All together there were 243 broadcasts which 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 video-taped broadcast aired on January 5, 1959. The LAST LIVE broadcast was aired July 3, 1959. "Best of Paar " Re-runs began on July 10,1959. Beginning July 20, 1959 Jack Paar began taking off Monday nights & guest hosts would substitute for him (approximately on alternate Mondays). The first color broadcast aired on September 19, 1960.
Theme music, "Everything is Coming Up Roses" was first used beginning in the Fall of 1959. 

Location broadcast telecasts of the program telecast away from the Hudson Theater in New York City occurred 14 times during this series run.

             October 14, 1958 - August 13, 1961

OPEN END with David Susskind: (WNTA Channel 13 Television)

                "THE MOVIE MAKERS"

Open End with David Susskind was a break through talk show which literally had no time limit. The show ended when host, moderator David Susskind felt all conversation points were discussed. Some of these marathon telecasts lasted over four hours!. 

The series premiered on WNTA Channel 13 in New York for three years, an independent broadcast station, before it would become a Public Broadcast Station in 1962. A myriad of talk show guests, famous, infamous and unknown, found a forum on OPEN END. Subjects varied focusing on usually one topic...show business, politics, the economy, sex, education, crime, etc. Typically, many guests would discuss a subject sitting around a large table with David Susskind moderating, leading his guests with baited questions. For the first three years, of its 26 year existence as a regular series, WNTA TV was home to OPEN END which originally began its broadcasts on Tuesday nights, switching on January 18, 1959 to Sunday nights...a future Sunday evening time slot of the week where it would remain until 1986, for the rest of its run. The OPEN END with David Susskind Show also found syndication across the country and each market would run the program at different time at their own discretion. 

Most all of the telecasts were recorded on video tape, 2" quadruplex. Most shows were kept for a year or two like THE MOVIE MAKERS broadcast which was re-run on August 6, 1961 almost a year after it was first telecast on October 2, 1960. By this time the show ran for a finite three hours long. Thus the re-run of the MOVIE MAKERS had some footage deleted from its original run which aired for over three and half hours, including commercials. 

The re-run of "THE MOVIE MAKERS" was the next to last broadcast telecast on WNTA channel 13. On September 10, 1961 the show moved to WNEW Channel 5 METROMEDIA in New York, and its air time was reduced to a two hour show.  

Sadly, most all of OPEN END broadcasts, later re titled THE DAVID SUSSKIND SHOW, commencing with the Oct. 2, 1966 broadcast, were wiped (erased), destroyed, discarded...whereabouts unknown, representing most shows produced and telecast during the late 1950's, 1960's and early 1970's.

"THE MOVIE MAKERS" panel consisted of directors, Fred Zinnemann, Richard Brooks, George Cukor, writer / producer Jerry Wald and screen writer Daniel Taradash. The round table discussion is lively and continued for almost three hours, sans commercials, many topics and anecdotal stories are exchanged. Discussion related to critics, the picture making business of today and yesterday, technical financial challenges of the day, budgets, the independent film making movement, working methods, the motion picture code, the black list, stars of tomorrow, new wave cinema, and commentary related to Hollywood legends, past and present, including  D.W. Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Jerry Lewis, John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, Humphrey Bogart, and so many others.

 One unexpected highlight on this show is the inclusion of actress Greer Garson who can be heard in the studio, and at one point comes to the round-table and serves sandwiches to the panel, where Susskind and the panel start to inject their own humor related to this gesture.

NOTE: This broadcast was discovered by archivist / scholar, Gary Rutowski (www.savetv.tv) in the form of six two sided 10" acetate discs. Eleven sides were cut. Each side plays for approximately 15 minutes. The discs were recorded by Soundcraft, at the request of guest panelist, David Taradash. Soundcraft was a duplication company with headquarters located  in New York City at the time. The acetates were recorded at 33 &1/3rpm.

Phil Gries cleaned, restored and digitized the acetates in December of 2018. The ten hour process required some equalization, slight volume adjustments, elimination of occasional unwanted extraneous recorded content, occasional moderate unwanted electronic "noise," host David Susskind lead ins to commercial breaks (ten) and four additional edits eliminating gaps, clicks, and chatter. Thus, segues from one disc side to another, eleven in all, were created producing a listening flow as a complete program which never goes to commercial.  

This rare example of a very early OPEN END with David Susskind broadcast is an historic and important television audio air check, now archived and preserved in digital form for the first time in six decades. It is considered one of the oldest surviving OPEN END complete broadcasts.
