Kraft Music Hall

Show Summary

Welcome to the Kraft Music Hall guide at The Kraft Music Hall started as a radio program that aired on NBC's radio network from 1933 until 1949. Bing Crosby hosted the radio series from 1935-46. In its many years on television The Kraft Music Hall went through many format changes: --The Milton Berle Show (October 1958 - May 1959) 30-minute weekly variety series. --The Dave King Show (May 1959 - September 1959) 30-minute Summer replacement series. --The Perry Como Show (1959 - 1963) 60-minute weekly variety series. The Perry Como shows from Fall 1959 through June 1963 were actually titled "Kraft Music Hall." This started when Kraft took over as sponsor. (Note: These episodes are not included on this episode guide. There is a separate Perry Como Show guide on TV Tome.) --Kraft Music Hall specials hosted by Perry Como (1963 - 1967) After the cancellation of Perry Como's weekly variety series, Kraft continued to sponsor specials featuring the singer. During this time, NBC aired roughly five or six "Kraft Music Hall" specials a year. (Note: I don't have a complete list of these specials but I'll list all of the ones that I'm aware of.) --The Kraft Music Hall (September 1967 - May 1971) A weekly 60-minute series with guest hosts. This series was unique because it dealt with a different theme each week. Thanks to Marty Farrell for providing many of the 1968-70 episode titles and details.moreless
