Lee’s Playlist: Finale

Lee Ayres

Television arrived in our homes in the ’50s and brought opportunities to watch our favorite musicians, especially new ones that we could only hear on the radio or our records. Here is a small selection of videos that bring back memories.

Ed Sullivan Show

Remember Sunday evenings? Ed Sullivan brought in the newest and best of pop culture icons. This video collection kicks off with the Beatles singing “Help,” LIVE on Ed Sullivan.

Elvis Presley

This video captures Elvis’ charm and vocal dexterity.  Elvis Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

TAMI – Teenage Music Awards International

IMDB has a trailer for a 1964 edition of this show, hosted by Jan and Dean. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058631/

Sir Paul McCartney, Sting, and Elton John will play us out. They got together with other great performers to make this all-time best-ever recording of “Hey Jude,” a grand finale for our musical trip down memory lane. Many thanks to Larry Haddad, ’58, for sharing this link.
