I went six or seven before I got Bob Dylan. Most of the tries were eliminations of people I didn't know were on

Even forgoing a chance for national exposure on Ed Sullivan, Dylan always marched to his own drumbeat.

I just took a guess & got it right, which is surprising considering that even though my family watched Ed Sullivan most Sunday evenings, but my siblings & I weren't really interested unless Jim Henson's Muppets or Topo Gigio, the Italian mouse, were featured. I remember watching Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color on Sunday nights, although I'm not sure if it was competing w/Ed Sullivan at the same time.

It was a family tradition in our house on Sundays just like Sunday dinners were a must! I actually looked forward to it each week especially when there were rock & roll guests and even Topo Gigio!! 😄😊

yeah! one T.V. Dad commanded it! my brother and I were the rabbit ears, but I was working and my brother and I bought a second hand B&W dad was pissed because we hooked it to the main antenna on roof, he lost his captive audience, while we gained a crowd, we watched what we wanted.

Sullivan was watched every Sunday as I recall. My Dad was a fan and back then it was one TV in the house, in the living room, Dad called the programs when he was home, and I was the remote control who changed the channels.

I never cared for Ed Sullivan, even though most of it was before my time...I got it on the first try. I seem to remember Dylan being difficult

Ed Sullivan would say we have a "really big show".

But it sounded like "really big shoe".

It's kinda funny.

He ruined Jackie Mason's career because Mason flipped him "the bird". Mason sued him for 3 million.

3 more attempts, and you would have made one for every year TESS aired: 1948-1971. Congratulations!
