KQED 9: Thu, Nov 14, 2013 -- 9:00 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.

This nostalgia-fest features a mix of new performances and short archival footage transitions of the fads, fashions, news stories and pop cultural events of the 50s decade. 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.
Songs included:
"26 Miles"; "Big Man" (Four Preps); "April Love" (Pat Boone); "Band of Gold" (Don Cherry); "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight" (Ensemble); Greatest Hits Medley (McGuire Sisters); "Istanbul"; "Standing on the Corner" (Four Lads); "Little Darlin'" (Diamonds); "Lollipop" (Chordettes); "Shangri-la" (Four Coins); "Sh-Boom" (Crew Cuts); "Sit Right Down and Write a Letter"; "All in the Game" (Mel Carter); "Tammy" (Debbie Reynolds); "Tennessee Waltz"; "Old Cape Cod" (Patti Page); "The Wayward Wind" (Gogi Grant); "Three Coins in the Fountain"; "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" (Four Aces).
