KQED 9: Sat, Jul 6, 2013 -- 5:00 PM

Take a stroll down memory lane with the pop sounds of this concert special. This reunion brings together the greatest recording artists from the 50s pop era. Taped in Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal, it is hosted by Mary Lou Metzger, Phyllis McGuire and Pat Boone, and features a cavalcade of 1950s pop music recording legends, reuniting and performing their biggest hits.

Tribute montages also highlight the superstar 50s pop icons who have died in recent years (Dean Martin, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Ray and more). Special guest presenters include Wink Martindale, Rip Taylor, Brett Somers, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Nick Clooney, Fess parker and Joni James.
