This Week in Television History: March 2016 PART V

Listen to me on TV CONFIDENTIAL:

 


 

As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth reallylies.

March 30, 1966
Barbra Streisand's Color Me Barbra special aired on CBS-TV.

April 3, 1956
Elvis sings his first RCA recording, "Heartbreak Hotel," on NBC's Milton Berle Show
An estimated 25 percent of America's population saw him sing that night; by April 21, the song had become Elvis' first No. 1 single.

To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".

 


Stay Tuned
