#14082: A BELL AND HOWELL CLOSE-UP!: "MONEY FOR BURNING"
1963-05-07, ABC, min.
John Daly, Richard Leacock, Robert Drew, John Secondari, Oscar Rose, Paul Paterney, Richard Roth

September 27, 1960 - June 4, 1963

BELL AND HOWELL CLOSE-UP! a series of reports produced in the main by ABC News' newly formed CLOSE-UP! unit headed by John Secondari, but often by Robert Drew and his team at Drew Associates in association with Time, Inc. Of particular  interest is the fact that John Daly, ABC's vice-president of News and Public Affairs, resigned in protest following the broadcast of Drew's "YANKI NO!" Daly, who in 1953 had become that network's first nightly TV nightly news anchor quit his ABC post in disagreement with the network's  new practice of farming out documentay assignments to independent producers.
 
Unfortunately for Robert Drew Associates, which were creating a new way of making documentaries ('DIRECT CINEMA'), only five different documentaries from his company, three of them filmed by documentary cinematographer Richard Leacock, were broadcast in total (one a two parter) from December 7, 1960 to May 16, 1961.

"YANKI NO!" broadcast  December 7, 1960

"MONEY FOR BURNING," A documentary about the Secret Service (protecting the president from harm and protection of US money from counterfeiters). 

Deputy Chief Paul Paterney and agent Richard Roth describe and then raid a counterfeiting distribution center. Undercover agents explain their roles and methods. Tips on spotting bad bills are also offered. Interestingly, in 1962 five hundred thousand dollars' worth of bogus bills was passed in the USA. Three and a half million was intercepted before it went into circulation and 737 do-it-yourself currency producers were arrested. 

Narrated by Oscar Rose.  

Sponsored by Bell and Howell.                                                  
#14084: BARRY GRAY INTERVIEWS, THE
1963-05-09, WMCA, min.
Barry Gray, Kenneth Keating, Wyatt Tee Walker, Samuel S. Stratton

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: The racial strife in Birmingham, Alabama. Barry Gray talks with negro minister Wyatt Tee Walker about the racial strife in Birmingham, also interviewed New York, Congressman Samuel S. Stratton. He talks about and attacks New York Republican Senator Kenneth Keating.

#14086: "WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?"
1963-05-11, WNEW, min.
Peter Cook, Pat McCormick, MacIntyre Dixon, John Bird, Roger W. Bowen

A satire on current news and events. A group of young iconoclasts takes over for a half-hour of far-out satire. 
Their targets are anything that needs to be deflated, poked at, pulled apart, or stripped of pretension. 
The show is based on a current BBC program "That Was The Week That Was" (or TWTWTW") which has created quite a stir in England. Like "TWTWTW" 'WGOH" searches the current scene for its material.
The show is the product of the whimsically named South Sea Trading Company, which is composed of Clay Felker and Jean Vanden  Heuvel, co-producers, Jonathan Miller director  (Beyond The Fringe") and performers Peter Cook, ("Beyond The Fringe") John Bird, (The Establishment") Roger W. Bowen and MacIntyre Dixon, (Second City"), and Pat McCormick, (comedy writer and actor. The group is hopeful that a series will develop from Tonight's program.   

An experimental special program that takes an audacious comic-satirical look at the news and current happenings.

#4960: VOICE OF FIRESTONE
1963-05-12, WABC, 27 min.
Alfred Drake, Rise Stevens, Coleman Blumfield

September 5, 1949-June 7, 1954 (NBC); June 14, 1954-June 16, 1963 (ABC). "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).

#14098: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1963-05-15, NBC, 15 min.
Johnny Carson, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Ed McMahon, Marlon Brando, Ida Lupino, Howard Duff, Allan Sherman

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.

Johnny's guests are Zsa Zsa Gabor, Marlon Brando, Howard Duff, Ida Lupino, and Allan Sherman.

15-minute excerpt. 

NOTE: Marlon Brando appears slightly inebriated and before long he irritates Ms. Gabor to the extent that she walks off the show. 

  This was Marlon Brando's first appearance on a late-night talk show. He was preceded on the panel by Zsa Zsa Gabor and when it was Brando's turn, Gabor continually interrupted his conversation with Johnny Carson. It looked like Brando might not get a word in beyond his opening remark, so Carson asked Gabor to leave the show, which she did.

On the July 26, 1979, episode of the Tonight Show, Johnny tells a story about this night. After commenting that his and Ed's mugs contain only coffee and tea respectively (no alcohol.) He reminisces about when they were doing shows in California a few times a year, They had a courtesy bar set up for the guests. He says that Marlon Brando didn't come out till 20 minutes before the end of the program, and by then he had been imbibing champagne for over an hour. He laments that the episode was not on tape.

#14107: "LIVE AND LET LIVE" A WBAI RADIO SPECIAL
1963-05-19, WBAI, 93 min.
Les Crane, Randolfe Wicker, Randy Wicker, Dick Elman, Randolf Wicker, Harry, Jack, Bill, Peter, Marty

A repeat of a rare July 15, 1962 broadcast for its time. A round table discussion by eight male homosexuals discussing their lives and loves.     

Moderator: WBAI Public Affairs Director, Dick Elman. 

To humanize homosexuality, Randolfe Wicker brought together a panel of eight homosexuals to speak as they would speak to each other. WBAI public affairs director, Dick Elman moderates a discussion recorded at a Brownstone home in NYC on the West Side. 

NOTE:

In early 1962, WBAI New York’s listener-supported “progressive" radio station aired an hour-long special, “The Homosexual In America.” It featured a panel of psychiatrists who described gay people as sick and in need of a cure — a cure that they could provide with just a few hours of therapy.

Gay Activist and founder of the “Homosexual League of New York” Randy Wicker was livid, not only at the ignorance of these so-called “experts,” but also because, once again, there was a panel of straight people talking about gay people they didn’t even know.

Wicker went to the WBAI studios and confronted Dick Elman, the station’s public affairs director. “Why do you have these people on that don’t know a damn thing about homosexuality? They don’t live it and breathe it the way I do. … I spend my whole life in gay society.”  Wicker demanded equal time and Elman agreed, provided Wicker find other gay people willing to go on the air as part of a panel.  When plans for the program were announced, the New York Journal-American went ballistic. Jack O’Brian, the paper’s radio-TV columnist, wrote that the station should change its callsign to WSICK for agreeing to air an “arrogant card-carrying swish.”

The broadcast titled “Live and Let Live,” featured Wicker and seven other gay men, identified only as Harry, Jack, Bill, Peter, Marty, and two others, talking for ninety minutes about what it was like to be gay.  They talked about their difficulties in maintaining careers, the problems of police harassment, and the social responsibility of gays and straights alike. The program’s host guided the programs with questions to the panel. “Is there harassment?” he asked. One panelist described some of the police harassment he had experienced, when one officer “roared up, jumped out of the car, grabbed me, and started giving me this big thing about ‘What are you doing here, you know there are a lot of queers around this neighborhood.’ He said, ‘You know, there’s only one thing worse than a queer, and that’s a nigger’.” (Remember this was 1962.)

The New York Times’s  called the program “the most extensive consideration of the subject to be heard on American radio” —  
   
A week before the broadcast, Jack O'Brian, a "right-wing" columnist for the New York Journal American, attacked it as an attempt to present "the ease of living the gay life." Wicker made the rounds to Variety, Newsweek, and The New York Times informing them of the broadcast and the attack on it by O'Brian. The 90-minute program, believed to be the first such in the United States, aired on July 15, 1962. Several mainstream media outlets, alerted by Wicker, covered the broadcast, which received favorable treatment in The New York Times, The Realist, Newsweek, the New York Herald Tribune, and Variety.

As a result of the publicity, from 1962 through 1964 Wicker was one of the most visible gay people in New York. He spoke to countless church groups and college classes and, in 1964, became the first openly gay person to appear on East Coast television with a January 31st appearance on The Les Crane Show which was recorded at the time of the original broadcast by Phil Gries founder and owner of Archival Television Audio.

 Wicker is credited with organizing the first known gay rights demonstration in the United States.

#14110: ED SULLIVAN SHOW (TOAST OF THE TOWN) THE
1963-05-19, CBS, 6 min.
Ed Sullivan, Vaughn Meader

           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.  

Ed's guest is President Kennedy impersonator Vaughn Meader.  
  
NOTE: After the assassination of President John F. Kennedy Vaughn Meader's career faded over night. He made three appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show impersonating JFK and one last appearance May 3, 1964 attempting a new routine. His fate was doomed and this would be one of his last television appearances before leaving the business. 

It's probably very safe to say that no performer within memory ever became a has-been as quickly as the man born Abbott Vaughn Meader. After toiling away on the small-club circuit for several years, his spot-on impersonation of then-President John F. Kennedy got him noticed by writer/performer/producer Earle Doud, who decided to build a comedy album around the nation's highly popular Presidential family. Built up of a series of satiric audio sketches about the Kennedys, and surrounding Meader with a supporting cast of top New York-based character actors, "The First Family" (Cadence: 1962) became an unprecedented success when it was released around Thanksgiving time in 1962. Its sales were so phenomenal that copies had to be rationed, it occupied several weeks at Number One on the Billboard Album charts, and was one of only two comedy albums ever to be awarded the Grammy for Album of the Year. A follow-up, "The First Family, Part Two" (Cadence: 1963), released the following summer, did almost as well. Both a third album and a TV special were in the works. Kennedy himself was a fan of the album, his biggest criticism being that he felt Meader sounded more like Robert F. Kennedy than himself.

Then, on November 22, 1963, the unthinkable happened. John F. Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas. Literally within hours of the shooting, all of Meader's engagements were canceled. Meader, who admired Kennedy and was as much in shock as everybody else, was at a loss. His Kennedy impersonation, which comprised a small portion of his club act, could have been easily cut. But, as he himself later put it, "literally overnight, nobody wanted to know from me. As far as they were concerned, I was as dead as the President."

#4961: VOICE OF FIRESTONE
1963-05-19, WABC, 27 min.
Florence Henderson, Mario Sereni, Michael Flaksman

September 5, 1949-June 7, 1954 (NBC); June 14, 1954-June 16, 1963 (ABC). "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).

#468: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1963-05-20, NBC, 9 min.
Johnny Carson, Walter O'Malley, Mort Sahl

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.

Walter O'Malley and Mort Sahl trade quips with Johnny Carson.
