Big Chuck Opens Up His Variety Show Vault: “The Dean Martin Show” (VIDEO)

The Dean Martin Show was a big hit.  It ran for 264 episodes from 1965 to 1974.
Dino was already an established media star in 1964:  movies, concerts, hit recordings and more.  But it was TV where his appeal really came shining through.  Elegant in his black tuxedo, he exuded an easy breezy charm which really registered with viewers.  He had comedy features, guest stars, and of course, a solo segment where it was just Dean., pianist Ken Lane and that beautiful voice.
The show was an NBC 10 p.m. staple for almost its entire run.  One popular segment, The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast, was eventually spun off into a series of NBC specials.
Virtually everybody and anybody in Hollywood was a guest on Dean’s variety show including Lucille Ball, Liberace, Tony Bennett, Eddy Arnold, The Supremes, Shirley Bassey, Jimmy Stewart, The Everly Brothers, Jack Benny, Rodney Dangerfield and many more.
Here is a clip for a very classy variety show.  Do you remember The Dean Martin Show?

I loved Thursday nights when our Dino was on the air every week. We all gathered around our TV set, an old b&w. Because we have b&w TV for most of the years that our Dino was on the air back then, I didn't get to see those shows in color. I am so grateful for YouTube!
