The Gay Nineties Revue (musical variety, hosted by Joe Howard)

    (ABC Primetime, 1948 - 1949)

    [an extension of the radio show of the same name, hosted by
     the 80-year-old vaudeville veteran Joe Howard]

Theme: "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now"

    [Although written in the decade following the 1890's, this
     was a familiar melody often sung by barbershop quartets;
     it was Joe Howard's signature song which he co-wrote with
     two other songwriters fifty years previously for a 1909
     musical revue called "The Prince of Tonight". Although
     his name was not on the original song, Harold Orlob's
     publisher successfully sued in 1948 to add his name to
     the song as a co-writer, but Orlob refused to accept 
     any subsequent royalties.]

                Harold Orlob (ASCAP); with
