A 1956 episode of Rosemary Clooney's filmed variety series. In this episode, her guest is Buddy Greco. Since this was a syndicated series, air dates varied from city to city. Unfortunately, this copy has sound quality issues, and there is an awful watermark several times during the video. Unfortunately, my usual DVD ripper wouldn't rip this, so I had to use an inferior ripper.

An episode with your singing host Perry Como, plus special guests Casey Stengel, Ginny Tiu, and Rosemary Clooney. This episode contains the original commercials (of the "send in for a free recipe" kind that many people love), but runs a little short, it is possible that coverage of the election was the reason for this. Unfortunately, the picture quality is quite washed-out.

Hosted by Milton Berle, with guests Edgar Bergen and Peggy King. A variety show sponsored by Kraft. Entertaining. This NBC show was originally in colour, but my copy is in black-and-white.

IMDb gives a broadcast date, but this actually varied from city to city. Rosemary Clooney lip-syncs songs. Tony Curtis does some comedy.

A 1953 commercial for Pure Oil service stations. It just amazes me that we can watch a television commercial from over 60 years ago.

This is a 1953 commercial for Chevrolet's range of trucks, which are noted in the ad for having low cost. I took this from a 8 October program (which I also uploaded...search that date if you want to see it)
