    I uploaded this today because sadly the lady singing, Marguerite Piazaa, passed away today at age 86, she was from New Orleans but lived in Memphis for a long time. She did a lot of Broadway & opera in the 1940s and 1950s and was a TV regular on "Your Show of Shows" with Sid Caesar.

    I have some spotty footage of Mr. Hirt, I'll have to go see what else I have, but yes...this TV feed was saved actually by the CBC in Canada and they used old-fashioned kinescope process to save this broadcast where they literally filmed a TV set's screen with a build-in microphone on the camera...many outlets did this before video tape came around or if they couldn't afford video tape.
