    "Who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me?" Next to Howdy Doody (which it helped unseat), The Mickey Mouse Club was the defining children's television program of the 1950's. The show, which aired daily, featured a true variety of entertainment: singing, dancing, guest stars, classic Disney cartoons, serials, and a group of talented kids who became overnight sensations—the Mouseketeers. Led by adult leader Jimmy Dodd, and flanked by hefty Disney animator Roy Williams, the Mouseketeers sang and danced their way into the hearts of the first TV generation.

    The standout of the group was Annette Funicello. Young America watched as the lovely and talented teenaged beauty developed before their very eyes. Annette soon starred in her own serial on the show, and went on to a successful career in film and music.

    Another popular element of the show was the serialized adventures of The Hardy Boys and Spin and Marty. Veteran Disney child actor Tim Considine starred in both, making him what many refer to as the "Honorary Mouseketeer." Other serial performers included Tommy Kirk, David Stollery, and Roy Barcroft.

    ABC (ended 1964)
    Hootenanny was presented as a traveling folk music jamboree. Taped at various college campuses, it debuted in the Spring of 1963 as a 30-minute show (8:30pm EST, Saturday) for 13 weeks. The program was not without controversy and is remembered today as the show that blacklisted Pete Seeger (along with other members of Seeger's group The Weavers), for alleged communist affiliations. For this reason, several of the genre's most prominent acts - The Kingston Trio, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Peter, Paul & Mary, among others - refused to appear. Nevertheless, folk music was then at its commercial peak and Hootenanny was a ratings success. To its credit, the program did strive for a balance between commercial folk groups (The Limeliters, The New Christy Minstrels) and ethnic folk performers (Theodore Bikel, Addis & Crofut, Josh White). Topical songs were not avoided either - the Chad Mitchell Trio, who appeared nine times, sang the satiric "John Birch Society," Tom Paxton's "What Did You Learn in School Today?" and Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind." The otherwise well-scrubbed Goodtime Singers covered Phil Ochs' "Freedom Calling (What's That I Hear?)." And while Seeger and the Weavers were barred, their music was not: The Simon Sisters performed Seeger's "Turn, Turn, Turn" and The Chad Mitchell Trio performed his "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" (a hit for the boycotting Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul & Mary); Bikel sang Weaver Fred Hellerman's anti-war song "Come Away, Melinda." In the Fall of 1963, Hootenanny was expanded to 60 minutes (7:30pm EST, Saturday) and scheduled against Jackie Gleason on CBS. Although not the time slot winner, Hootenanny scored well enough to keep Gleason out of the top 30, and by Christmas there was talk that it would continue for another season. But less than two months later, everything changed: Beatlemania had come to America and the popularity of folk music began a rapid decline. In fact, many performers who appeared on Hootenanny as folk singers (John Phillips, Cass Elliot, Gene Clark, Carly Simon) would find greater success in rock 'n' roll. In 1964, ABC cancelled Hootenanny in favor of a new music program: Shindig!moreless

    At the age of 14, Marty Stuart was touring with Flatt and Scruggs; At 22, he was a member of Johnny Cash's band, and had released a solo album of Bluegrass-music; In the 90s, he won 4 Grammy awards, and produced a string of top-10 Country hits, including Hillbilly Rock, Little Things, Burn Me Down, and his collaborations with Travis Tritt: This One's Gonna Hurt You, and The Whiskey Ain't Workin', both of which, were his own compositions.

    There was no doubt that Stuart had made his mark on the Country Music world, when, in 2008, he decided to give TV a shot, with The Marty Stuart Show. Produced by Stuart, himself, in a styIe very much like The Wilburn Brothers Show and The Porter Wagoner Show, this half-hour program premiered on the RFD TV Network on November 1st, 2008, and features performances by Stuart, and his band, The Fabulous Superlatives, his wife - Connie Smith, "The most popular man in Country Music": banjoist Leroy Troy, and weekly guest appearances by such Country luminaries as Mel Tillis, Little Jimmy Dickens, John Anderson, Charley Pride, Josh Turner, Dierks Bentley, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Charlie Daniels, among many others.

    Spectacle: Elvis Costello With... fuses the best elements of talk radio and music television, inviting viewers to enjoy rare musical performances and intimate conversations between the award-winning host and his iconic guests - each of whom is an influential figure from the world of music, politics or film. Explaining his approach, Elvis said, "I'm not interested in extracting some dark secret. I'd rather hear about a bright secret, a deep love or a curiosity that might be otherwise obscured by fame. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk in complete thoughts about music, movies, art or even vaudeville - then frame it with unique and illustrative performances." Guest artists, who run the gamut from legendary performers to notable newcomers, demonstrate the development and creation of their music - often by playing new, stripped-down, acoustic, impromptu or solo versions of some of their best and most popular songs. Elvis and The Imposters perform interpretations of songs either by or associated with the featured guests. In addition, the show features extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime musical collaborations. Spectacle airs on the Sundance Channel in the U.S., Channel 4 in the U.K. and CTV & Bravo in Canada. Elsewhere, FremantleMedia distributes the show worldwide. In addition, Season 1 of Spectacle is now available on iTunes and a DVD/Blu-ray box set was released throughout North America on November 17, 2009. The show is recorded before a live audience at Harlem's world famous Apollo Theater in New York City and Toronto's historic Masonic Temple.moreless
