THE LUCKY STRIKE PAPERS: JOURNEYS THROUGH MY MOTHER'S TELEVISION PAST by Andrew Lee Fielding

In 1951, a critic in Downbeat magazine wrote that Sue Bennett was "one of the coming female singers in the country." Bennett was a featured singer on several network shows during TV's early years, including Kay Kyser's College of Musical Knowledge, The Freddy Martin Show, and Your Hit Parade.

Decades later, Andrew Fielding began exploring the period of live television, via the shows on which his mother sang. His resulting portrait of the era, which includes conversations with such early television luminaries as Dorothy Collins, Snooky Lanson, Raymond Scott, Merv Griffin, Arthur Penn, and Kay Kyser, is both enlightening, and captivating.
