Hey Rock n' Rollers! This Saturday night we will remember the early days of television. An appearance by a musical act would almost guarantee an even greater amount of record sales. Hear snipits from previous Those Were The Days interviews with the likes of Dick Clark and Steve Allen and musical acts like the 5th Dimension and Tommy James and the Shondells about appearing on the Ed Sullivan show. We will also feature great music and special features from the 1950s through the 1980s until Midnight on WRCO FM 100.9. I have vivid memories of watching for my favorite artist or group on a tv show. In the 70's The Midnight Special featured a wide array of talent live on stage. Saturday afternoons I would always try to catch American Bandstand. From 1948 until early 1971 the Ed Sullivan show was a showcase for plate spinners, dancing elephants, comedy acts, and the top musical artists of the day. My friend Kent Kotal has been featuring memories of the Ed Sullivan show on his site Forgottenhits.com. He has been collecting memories of the Sullivan show from all over the world. This is what I wrote.
