The Jaye P. Morgan Show (music)

    (NBC Primetime, 1956)

    [the 1950s female vocalist with smoldering looks and husky voice
     was the host of this summer replacement show for Eddie Fisher's
    "Coke Time." Her hits included "Just A Gigolo" and "Life Is Just 
     A Bowl Of Cherries" in 1953, and "The Longest Walk" in 1955.

     According to a Web Site from Verdugo Hills High School in 
     Tujunga, California (near Los Angeles), Jaye P. Morgan's
     given name was Mary Morgan; she was the class treasurer 
     in 1947; as a result, began to be called "J.P." in reference 
     to legendary financier John Pierpoint Morgan; The nickname 
     stuck and Jaye P. was her name professionally as well;

     On this summer series, her four brothers formed a vocal
     quartet which sang behind her; unfortunately the series never
     was picked up after the summer of 1956]
