Yes, Peebs.  It was the Chesterfield 101 that was a silly millimeter longer.  Good work!

Believe it or not, I used to listen to the radio before rock and roll ruled the airwaves. In the mid-fifties before rock ruled, there were some nice Tunes out there that I heard on the radio and my mother even had some on 78rpm records.

Let's see if you can name the recording artists who had hit records with these songs without peeking at Google. 

( Some artists may be mentioned more than once.)

 

1) Mambo Italiano

2) Papa Loves Mambo

3) The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane

4) This Ole House

5) Hold My Hand

6) Love and Marriage

7) Count Your Blessings

Eight) Haji Baba

9) Look, Homeward Angel

10)Standing on the Corner

4. I don't know if his was the only version, but my dad had a Tennessee Ernie Ford LP with that on it 

A Tennessee Ernie Ford cover of "This Ole House" would not surprise me on an LP, like in my time everybody even Frank Sinatra recorded "Moon River".

But "This Ole House" was a big hit record for one very significant 50s recording artist... 

At this time period, the "Old Pea Picker" himself was becoming very famous for the song "Sixteen Tons".

#3 The Naughty Lady Of  Shady Lane was a hit for the Ames brothers

#7 - Count Your Blessings was, of course, sung by Bing Crosby in  "White Christmas". Bing recorded it, but I seem to recall that Eddie Fisher had a hit record with the song.

9. is Johnnie Ray (There's No Business Like Show Businesses)

5. Dick Powell sang a version of Hold My Hand in Susan Slept Here

 

 Chaya-- # 9 is correct.

#5 was Don Cornell who had a hit record with the Oscar-nominated "Hold My Hand", which Debbie Reynolds listened to on the radio in "Susan Slept Here".

Thanks Princess

next

Even thugh this classic comedy tv show was a hit, the co-star  ( Emmy winner for a different show  years later)) said that he regretted doing this tv show. He was friends with his co-star and made money but he felt it slowed his career down for years since so many identified him with the role. He had been a supporting actor in quite a few famous films.  His co-star had 2 hit tv shows after this show. TV show, and the 2 stars ??

Yes, it is Ray Walston and My Favorite Martian. He said he regretted taking the role. although the money was good and he was friends with Bill Bixby but the role made him so recognizable as Uncle Martin that it stalled his career for a few years. He was in Spain and someone called him Uncle Martin and put 2 fingers behind his head as antennas LOL. Good work Peebs, you're up next
