From J. Fred MacDonald’s collection, a clip from The Billy Daniels Show, the first network sponsored show with an African-American lead. (Hazel Scott and Bob Howard had short-lived unsponsored musical programs circa 1950). MacDonald says “No one else in the world has that show! (It's in my BLACKS AND WHITE TV book online)”. In this premiere episode, Daniels sings “Just One of Those Things” (Cole Porter, 1935).
