Show Summary

Hullabaloo was a musical variety show on NBC that aired from January 12, 1965 to April 11, 1966 (with reruns continuing until August 29, 1966) and featured some of the most popular pop/rock acts of the mid-60s.
It was introduced as an hour-long show midway through the 1964-65 season. The first thirteen shows featured segments taped in London hosted by the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, who usually introduced a British act. When Hullabaloo returned for it's second season in the fall of 1965, it switched to a half-hour.
Unlike most musical variety shows, Hullabaloo featured a different guest host every week (although several people appeared more than once). One highlight of the show's format was the Top Pop Medley, which had the guest host and featured musical guests doing brief renditions of whatever was hot on the charts at the time. Also, the last song of each episode was usually performed on a set which resembled a mod night club - this was called "Hullabaloo A Go-Go."moreless
