Perry Como was one of he hottest properties in show business, with a four-year string of hit records and an NBC radio series already to his credit, when his first TV series began in 1948. The Chesterfield Supper Club premiered in the Friday 7:00-7:15 P.M. time slot on December 24, 1948, but stayed there only three weeks before moving to 11:00 P.M. on January 14, 1949. It was at first a simulcast of Perry's popular radio show and made few concessions to the new medium. Cameras were simply brought into the radio studio and Como and his guests were seen in front of a radio microphone, with scripts and music stands in full view. ...LINK to WNAR PROGRAM SCHEDULE
