1950's Trivia Challenge
Part 3 of your trivia quiz deals with Radio & TV in the 50's. See how sharp you are....

1. Before videotape was implemented in the early 1960's, what was the process used by television networks and local stations to record a live program for future broadcast?

2. What radio station in Seattle was the first to play Rock and Roll starting in 1958? They're still around today with the same call letters, albeit a different format.

3. A number of 'Pirate' radio stations (broadcasting from ships anchored offshore) began playing rock n' roll in the British Isles back in the 50's. Why was this rather unusual move undertaken?

4. Actor William Conrad, who starred for a few years in the TV drama 'Cannon' on CBS, was not seen but heard every week on one of the longest-running series in television history. Name that show.

5. Before the days of call screening and 7 second delay, a Baltimore DJ named Roz Ford allowed a caller on his all-night show on WITH in 1956 to ask a prominent female singer a series of questions that turned out to be very risque. Which suffice to say, were met with shocked indignation and disgust by the vocalist. Name the lady.

6. Martin Milner, at the time a future star of TV's 'Route 66', 'Adam-12', and other video efforts, was featured in a brief but humorous scene with Henry Fonda in what 1957 Navy movie that also starred Ward Bond, James Cagney, and (the future Festus Haggin) Ken Curtis?

7. What pioneering KLIF Dallas Top 40 air personality developed a reputation for flagpole sitting in that city in the late 50's? He later went to the Baltimore market where he lived in a fallout shelter eating rations for 2 weeks as part of a station promotion.

8. What major TV star (still very active today) sat out huge portions of his popular Warner Brothers western-themed series due to a long-running dispute with the studio over salary and other compensation?

9. TV's popular Regis Philbin worked for a time in radio in San Diego in the late 50's and into the 60's. What did he do in those days?

10. When Dick Clark's 'American Bandstand' went national on ABC-TV in August, 1957, it was never seen in Baltimore. The only Top 50 market in the country where Clark was not broadcast. He never made it there until well into the 60's. Why was Clark not on in Baltimore?
