During the 1950s, one performer challenged Elvis Presley in chart-topping hits — Pat Boone. Instantly recognizable for his silky, smooth singing voice, charming good looks and iconic white bucks, Boone had 38 top 40 hits, starred in movies, became a best-selling author and, from 1957 to 1961, hosted “The Pat Boone-Chevy Showroom,” a weekly network television musical variety show.

Boone stars in his first PBS special, featuring memorable performances from that hit series. Performers include Mel Torme, the Mills Brothers, Frankie Avalon, Johnny Mathis, Connie Francis, Count Basie and Nat “King” Cole.
