"The EDSEL Show" - Blockbuster TV Nostalgia from October 13, 1957! (Video)

***
*
~OCTOBER 13, 1957~
There never had been, and probably
never will be another television show like 
*
On this date in history, The Ford Motor Company
preempted The Ed Sullivan Show to introduce
it's newest vehicle to America.
THE 1958 EDSEL!
The EDSEL Show was the most watched
TV show of 1957, and although
broadcast "live", was also the first
program ever to be recorded 
on video tape.
*
The Edsel Show was hosted
by Bing Crosby, 
and featured
Frank Sinatra,
Rosemary Clooney, and
Louis Armstrong.
*
This Video of The Edsel Show 
is divided into 5 parts.
Part 1 - 10 minutes:
*
Part 2 - 15 minutes:
*
Part 3 - 11 minutes:
*
Part 4 -14 minutes:
*
Part 5 - 15 minutes:
*
The EDSEL, however, was not
well recieved by the public
and went the way of 
The Willys and Studebaker
4 years later.
