YOUR HIT PARADE with Dorthy Collins and Snooky Lanson


The seven top-rated songs of the week were presented in elaborate TV production numbers requiring constant set and costume changes. However, because the top songs sometimes stayed on the charts for many weeks, it was necessary to continually find ways of devising a new and different production number of the same song week after week. After the show was revamped in September 1957, the top songs were reduced to five, while "extras" were increased.  The show we present is from May of 1953 which includes  “How Much Is That Doggie In The Window”,  “April In Portugal”, “Moulin Rouge”, “Side by Side” ,“Night and Day”.and”Pretend”.
