October 1958-Looking Back..

NBC Daytime ad-October 13-17, 1958

Wednesday, October 15, 1958-Lawrence Welk Plymouth Show..Unique in the broadcast is "stereo"..If one tuned their AM radios to WAKR-1590 and WSRS-1490 along with watching on TV, they could hear the music in stereo..

Here's what I think is a great ad..KYW-TV Movie choices Oct. 11-17, 1958-KYW aired four movies a day Mon.-Fri..

Full Page TV Guide ad for "Bandstand" with Plil McLean and Darlene Kane,,This was for a special Cleveland Arena Show in which 7,000 fans were expected to attend..No record of the bands who played that day..Might be something worth researching..McLean later worked at WWWE-1100 and WUAB-43

The lovely Darlene Kane-Co-hostess with Phil McLean on Channel 8's "Bandstand" Popular music show in the late 1950's."TV Scope" was a free TV Guide available at Fisher Foods Cleveland locations, and possibly other stores in Northeast Ohio.

Wednesday, October 15, 1958:Ad for WJW-TV's "Big" Movies at 1 and 5:45PM
