Revisit the Golden Era of 1950s and Early 60s Pop

In this trip down memory lane, the late Frankie Laine came out of retirement to “spend one more night in our old rendezvous” singing his sentimental “That’s My Desire.” Italian crooner Julius La Rosa takes the stage to perform his classics “Eh Compari” and “Domani,” while Page sings her million-selling “Allegheny Moon.” The Four Lads, Four Aces, Four Freshmen, Roger Williams, Herb Reed’s Platters, DeCastro Sisters and others appear to sing their greatest hits.

Archival performances from Rosemary Clooney and Perry Como round out this nostalgic special.
