Rehearsal Time (1949)


Fifteen minute show that featured a cast of local regulars. It ran in L.A. This episode is from September 21,1949. The theme is autumn. The show is presented as a rehearsal.

The show opens with a Sealy Mattress commercial.  Dottie Jo Colder and Dick Vine sing “Shine On Harvest Moon.” Already it’s time for another Sealy commercial. It’s a long one. Dick sings “September Song” with Charlie Lampkin on piano.  After that Charlie solos on “Tis Autumn.”

Priscilla and Bebe start to dance to “September In The Rain.” They stop and Dick sings it along with Dottie Joe.  Then the dancers come back out and continue. Time to sell more Sealy.

Murray and the cast plug a new time for next week.

The show is pretty bland. The performances are bordering on stiff and the commercials add lots of corn.

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
