     [Long before she was known as George Clooney's aunt, singer
      Rosemary Clooney had many hits during the 1940s and 1950s 
      including her signature song, "Tenderly" which she recorded
      as a revival in 1955; it was a big hit the year before she
      hosted this early TV musical variety series;

      The Syndicated show was a trial balloon which featured the
      Hi-Lo's singing group and Nelson Riddle's orchestra;
      Her show was picked up for sponsorship by the makers of 
      Lux detergent soap as a network series on NBC the next year;
      The Modernaires singing group and Frank DeVol's orchestra
      were featured on her NBC show]
