      • MYSTERY GUEST: Popular bandleader Fred Waring (1900-1984), frontman for Fred Waring and His Pennsylvanians and known as "The Man Who Taught America How to Sing," makes his only appearance on "WML?" tonight in an episode that is unfortunately lost to history. At the time of his mystery guest appearance tonight, Mr. Waring was hosting a musical variety show on CBS, "The Fred Waring Show," which was on from 1949 to 1954, and at this point ran on Sundays at 9:00 PM after "Toast of the Town" (which didn't become "The Ed Sullivan Show" until 1955). Many years earlier, Mr. Waring led a glee club vocal group, and one of his protegés who directed the vocalists in that group, Robert Shaw (1916-1999), would go on to a long career of his own beginning in the 1940's, first with The Robert Shaw Chorale; and then, from 1967 to 1988, as conductor and music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. In addition, Fred had some notable business ventures, including the music publishing firm Shawnee Press, Inc., one of whose most famous copyrights was the Christmas standard "The Little Drummer Boy" which was first recorded by The Harry Simeone Chorale in 1958 (initially released on single 20th-Fox 121, later reissued in 1963 on 20th Century-Fox 429) and became much-recorded thereafter; but his most famous and longest-enduring venture involved the development of the Waring electric blender which would become a fixture in home kitchens for years to come. - W-B (2008)

      • Per Gil Fates' handwritten logs, no kinescope of this episode exists. It was destroyed by CBS before Gil Fates noticed the destruction policy in 1952 and began saving the kinescopes. Only about 10 episodes exist from February 1950 to July 1952. - Suzanne (2004)

        Panel: Dorothy Kilgallen, Bennett Cerf, Arlene Francis, Hal Block.
