I seem to recall I have buried away a VHS tape of a Nat King Cole show which
included some of the JATP stars and another show which included Teddy
Buckner. The Nat Cole Show might be an avenue of research worth pursuing,
emphasis on *might be*.

Dave Bargeron has also been doing some amazing modern tuba duet
recordings with Michel Godard - taking jazz tuba in many different
directions. I see at his website http://www.davebargeron.com he was an
original member of Substructure/Gravity back in 1968 - it may have been
his connections with B S &T that got them on to a mainstream TV show.

Bringing this back to a more DJML inclusive topic - I am trying to
remember (from my childhood) how often OKOM/ Trad Jazz bands made it to
major TV shows in the  1950s and early 1960s - the height of the trad
revival in the US and other countries. I can remember seeing some Louis
Armstrong and Louie Prima /Sam Butera, a few other bands  on the Ed
Sullivan Show, the Spike Jones program, and some Pete Fountain on
Lawrence Welk shows but after that I draw a blank.

Anybody have some others?
