Two artifacts, 1950

Two artifacts:

The first: a mailing from 1950, sent to a home in Phoenix, New York. On one side, the card displays the broadcast schedule of television station WKTV, in Utica, New York. The station featured programs from three networks: NBC, CBS, and ABC. On the reverse side of the card is an advertisement for Kay Kyser’s Thursday night television show.

The second: a ticket to the last telecast of Kay Kyser’s program, at New York’s International Theatre, in December of 1950.
