Music For A Summer Night /...A Spring Night (musical variety)

    (ABC Primetime, 1959 - 1960)

    [Glen Osser's orchestra was featured in this series which changed
     its name to "Music For A Spring Night" during its last few months;

     Although this was an attempt by ABC to continue "prestige"
     programming following the end of "The Voice Of Firestone", there
     were scheduling pre-emptions due to news special reports, and
     critics thought the show didn't have the level of quality of
    "Firestone" to which it was unfavorably compared;

     Despite its low budget, Osser was one of the best arrangers of
     music during the classic radio/early television era; the program
     had a novel feature: artist/inventor John Hoppe used a device 
     he called a "Mobilux" to create electronic graphics to introduce
     musical numbers -- years before digital computer graphic programs
     were developed]
