Eddy Arnold Time (music, starring Eddy Arnold)

     Syndicated, 1955 - 57

    [This TV show was filmed in Chicago, and had 26 episodes 
     that were syndicated. Featured performers besides country 
     vocalist and host Eddy Arnold (known affectionately as
     "The Tennessee Plowboy") included vocalist Betty Johnson
     of "The Johnson Family Singers", and a 4-piece male vocal
     group, "The Gordonaires", who also recorded under the name
     "The Jordonaires" on the Capitol Records label.] 

Theme: "Bouquet of Roses"

    [Although on his radio series, Eddy Arnold had used "The
     Cattle Call" as his yodeling theme song (written in 1934), he
     chose a different theme to use on this 1955 Television Series.
     This was also one of Arnold's biggest hit songs, written in
     1948; It served him well, selling millions of copies. It has
     been recorded by over two dozen artists since Arnold sung it,
     including Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Marty Robbins.
     It begins with bittersweet lyrics, "I'm sending you a big
     Bouquet of Roses, one for ev'ry time you broke my heart..."
     Ironically, despite it's country flavor, the two writers were
     members of ASCAP, not BMI who usually represent country songs.
