      • Thanks to Macfarlane for providing the song titles and this excerpt from "Variety":
        ". . . The big hoop-la, of course and a rarity in the area of 'live' tv, was the Bing Crosby appearance and soloing of his 'True Love', with an enforced reprise, hitched to a Sullivan wager that it'll register second only to 'White Christmas' in disc clicks. 'Love' was done to a Bing turn but it was in the banter division, chiefly with Phil Silvers, that the Crosby personality asserted itself as of old. Their by-play in the show's opening moments, set a pace for hilarity that was only topped when Silvers, in perhaps his most stand-out non-Bilko turn on tv, turned in a skit on 'Ol Man River' at a 'Show Boat' rehearsal that hit a peak in comedics. . ." ("Variety" 14th November 1956)
