Your Hit Parade  Opening Opening Intro for the 50's Television show "Your Hit Parade". Your Hit Parade was a popular radio and television program, sponsored by Lucky Strike cigarettes and broadcast from 1935 to 1955 on radio and telecast from 1950 to 1959. During this 24-year run, the show had 19 orchestra leaders and 52 singers or groups. Each Saturday evening at 8pm, a hit parade of the more popular and bestselling songs of the week were presented. The original format involved a presentation of the top 15 tunes. Later, a countdown with fanfares led to the top three finalists, with the number one song for the finale. Occasional performances of standards and other favorite songs from the past were known as "Lucky Strike Extras." Listeners were informed that "Your Hit Parade survey checks the best sellers on sheet music and phonograph records, the songs most heard on the air and most played on the automatic coin machines, an accurate, authentic tabulation of America's taste in popular music." However, the exact procedure of this "authentic tabulation" remained a secret. Some believe song choices were often arbitrary due to various performance and production factors. The show's ad agencies never revealed the specific sources or the methods that were used to determine the top hits.

Steve Martins   Michael Jackson impersonation This is a clip from a show called "The New Show". It was produced by Lorne Michaels and some of the other original SNL and SCTV creators. This was the opening sketch to the first show which was similar to Saturday Night Live but nowhere near as successful. Ran one season. Guests included John Candy.

Disco Inferno Live Remember the Trammps? This is from April 26, 1977. Disco Inferno was a hit in '76, and gained even greater recognition once it was included on the soundtrack to the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever.

Bay City Rollers Saturday Night The Bay City Rollers, a Scottish band, were hyped as the next coming of the Beatles in the mid-1970s. It didn't quite work out that way. They had a few moderately successful songs--and one huge hit: Saturday Night. You just have to sing along with this one.

Morecambe and Wise This duo were regular Saturday night viewing for years in the UK. Everybody has their favourite sketch. This is one of mine. Hollywood stars, music groups and singers all fell over themselves to be on their show. Andre Previn does well to keep a straight face.

The Adventures Of Captain Marvel I remember getting all excited as a boy, hoping that if I said Shazam I too would have these powers. Still trying. This was a staple of the Saturday morning Cinema kids club at my local Odeon. How the floor boards ever stood up to 200 screaming and stomping kids, I'll never know.
