Some of you may not believe this, but there was a time when neither Dick Clark nor Ryan Seacrest celebrated a Rockin' New Year. Instead, many Americans rang out the old and rang in the new with Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians. (Or, with a flick of the channel, Xavier Cugat with his coochie-coochie-coochie wife Charo.)
Let's party like it's 1957!
Watching Guy Lombardo on New Year's Eve was the only reason my mother would ever stay up past ten o'clock. I saw the show quite a few times when I was a kid.ReplyDelete

I remember! January 1 is my birthday so my parents let me stay up to ring it in from a young age.ReplyDelete
