The Music Show was an early American television program which was broadcast on the now defunct DuMont Television Network.

Broadcast history[edit]

The series ran from May 1953 to October 1954. The show was a musical program broadcast live from WGN-TV in Chicago, featuring the vocal talents of Mike Douglas, Henri Noel, Eleanor Warner, Jackie Van, and (in 1954) Dolores Peterson.

Robert Trendler conducted a 34-piece orchestra. The Music Show originally aired Tuesday nights at 9 (EST) on most DuMont affiliates. The series moved to 8:30 in July, and to 10:30 on Wednesday nights in October. In January 1954, The Music Show began airing at 10:00. Finally, from September to October 1954, the program was broadcast on Sundays at 10 PM.[1]

The Music Show was only one of several DuMont Network series to be broadcast from Chicago; others included The Al Morgan Show, Concert Tonight, Chicagoland Mystery Players, Music From Chicago, They Stand Accused, This Is Music, Windy City Jamboree, and the Emmy-nominated game show Down You Go. All of these series were broadcast from DuMont affiliate WGN-TV over the DuMont Network.[1]
