In April 1949, The Fred Waring Television Show became the first weekly one-hour musical show on television. Their weekly “spectaculars" on CBS-TV, sponsored by General Electric, captured numerous awards for Best Musical Show. The show aired every Sunday night from 9-10 p.m., until January 1952, and then became a half-hour show until May 1954.
In the late 1950s, Waring returned to what he enjoyed most—performing for live audiences. He became known as “King of the Road,” taking his show back and forth across the country. Every year the group logged up to 40,000 miles, mostly by bus.
