The Buddy Deane Show
1957 - 1964

The Buddy Deane Show
1957 - 1964
The Buddy Dean Show was Baltimore's answer to Philadelphia's American Bandstand. By 1960 teen dance shows had become hits. Interracial relations were spilling over and pop culture was responding. The Buddy Dean show reserved every other Friday for black teenagers to dance while American Bandstand featured both black and white teenagers dancing at the same time though not together. Buddy's parent station, WJZ-TV was not sympathetic to showing blacks and whites dancing at the same time decided to blackout American Bandstand, and only air The Buddy Dean Show. In 1960 Baltimore this was THE show to watch and if you were lucky enough, appear on. We believe this picture was taken for a Halloween show where a Ouija board was given away for a prize.

December 18th 1960

Dennis The Menace
December 18th 1960
The Raffle episode aired on December 18th 1960 and was the eleventh episode of Dennis The Menace's second season. In it Mr. Wilson needs to sell raffle tickets for his lodge and the grand prize is a new car. Dennis decides he wants to win the car for his mom and tells her “Oh Don't worry Mom. I'll make that old Wee Jee board worry. He'll worry and worry until he worries you right into the right number for your new car.” He runs into his bedroom, jumps onto his bed, and rests his finger on the pointer. “Abbarcadabber, abbarcadabber -- Old Mister Wee Jee Board if you ever tried hard, try hard now -- What is the number of the ticket that wins?” And with those words Dennis' adventure begins. Did the old faithful Ouija board give Dennis the winning numbers and his mom a new car? Tune in to see.

The Gary Moore Show
1958 - 1964

The Gary Moore Show
1958 - 1964
The Garry Moore Show shown in this picture is actually its second television incarnation. The first Garry Moore Show went on air in 1951. It was a daytime, and sometimes evening variety show that began as a thirty-minute segment and aired live five days a week. That eventually changed to a weekly one-hour show. The second Garry Moore Show began in 1958 and was strictly an evening variety show. The show hosted favorites like Carol Burnett and was extremely popular. It also featured the classic “Candid Camera.” In 1964 Garry decided to end the show. However, he was back for a short time in 1966. We haven't yet come upon any archives of the episodes, but you can tell from these pictures that he and this pretty lady were having fun with a Ouija board.
