Bobby Vinton was known for soft pop hits like "Blue on Blue", "Mr. Lonely", "There! I've Said It Again", and "My Melody of Love" during the 60's. In the mid-70's, Vinton tried his luck hosting a syndicated, weekly variety show. One advantage he had was that he had veteran producer Chris Bearde as a show-runner. Bearde had worked with Andy Williams, Sonny & Cher, and the Hudson Brothers on their shows, and in the case of the Hudsons, theirs was a Saturday morning show. Bearde also packaged a daily kids' show, The Hilarious House of Frightenstein, featuring Vincent Price, before hooking up with Chuck Barris for The Gong Show, as Chuckie needed someone who knew about variety shows.........
Unfortunately for Vinton, his show met the same fate as the Hudsons, although it was cancelled after 3 seasons instead of one. Bear in mind that back in those days, stations were checker-boarding their "fringe" schedules, shows that aired ahead of network primetime fare. By checker-boarding, I mean a station would air a different show each night in the same slot, say, 7:30 pm, which is where Vinton wound up in my market, and if memory serves, The Bobby Vinton Show aired on Thursday nights. Vinton had some silly supporting "characters", like Andy Williams did, but all they did was drag the show down.
Tony Hiller uploaded a clip of Vinton & Anne Murray dueting on "United We Stand", which Hiller wrote for the 1-hit wonder Brotherhood of Man in the early 70's.
