Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts (1956)

Arthur Godfrey

Arthur Godfrey was an American ukelele player, radio and television broadcaster and entertainer who was sometimes introduced by his nickname, The Old Redhead. Arguably the most prominent of the medium's early master commercial pitchmen, he was strongly identified with his many sponsors, especially Chesterfield cigarettes and Lipton Tea. His Talent Scouts program presaged modern shows such as American Idol and launched the careers of Carol Burnett, Julius LaRosa, and others.
