A Quiz Question

Your Hit Parade, which had been a hit show on radio since the 1930s, came to TV in 1950, airing Saturday nights on NBC.

The TV show originally featured two, and then three singers; it settled on its permanent cast of four featured singers in 1953. That cast remained in place until 1957.

In 1957, the show’s four singers were replaced by a group of younger performers.

Between 1950 and 1957, seven featured singers appeared on the Hit Parade. (This does not include Polly Bergen, who briefly replaced singer Dorothy Collins in 1954, when Collins took maternity leave.)

A free copy of The Lucky Strike Papers will be sent to the first person who e-mails this blog ( with the names of the seven singers who were featured on the show between 1950 and 1957 (before the cast of younger singers took over).

Please include your name and address, along with your answer to this question.
