The Gay Nineties Revue was an American variety series that aired live on ABC Television from August 11, 1948 to mid-1949 on Wednesdays at 8pm ET. The host was songwriter Joseph E. Howard, who was reportedly age 71 at the time he hosted the show.
Howard was a popular songwriter and singer, who later had a successful career capitalizing on the nostalgia many had for the "Gay 90's". The series was a hit on radio, before premiering on television.
At least one episode of this show survives, which can be viewed online at the Internet Archive.
