Perry Como, easy-going crooner is host for an easy-going 60 minutes of song and comedy. Goodman Ace, creator
of radio's "Easy Aces" and head writer for the revamped "Milton Berle Show" during the past two seasons, is
in charge of scripts for the Como show, designed to reflect the Como personality.

It's Perry Como at home tonight, and he's trying to repair his TV set. The lady neighbor drops in
(Marion Lorne, best remembered for her role as Mrs. Gurney of the Mr. Peepers show). The other neighbor
is comic impersonator Dave Barry, who gives Perry an idea of what he's been missing.
Also a comedy bit by Leo DeLyon.
The Mitchell Ayres Orchestra closes with "You Are Never Far From Me".

Regulars on the show include Perry's old associates musical director Mitch Ayres and the Ray Charles Singers.

"Drop That Name"'with Como. There's .also Tennessee Ernie Ford, who stops by during his visit to New York for a
bit of chatter and song
