9780786754182: But You Made the Front Page: Wonderama, War, and a Whole Bunch of Life

There have been many books about the strange and exotic world of show business, but rarely has one encompassed so many roles in one person, Sonny Fox. Comedy writer on a daily half-hour TV series in New York, pioneer on the eighth Educational TV station to go on the air, host of the first weekly CBS-TV series to originate a live TV series, Emcee of The $64,000 Challenge,” Producer of movies for TV and specials for PBS, VP Children’s programming NBC-TV, Chair of the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a weekly, four-hour children’s program that set a standard for how to deal with young viewers, Fox ran the gamut, starting in radio in 1947 and lasting until today, that may be unique in TV history.

What makes this a must-read is Sonny’s ability to spin narratives that take you inside of this panoply of events and personalities, so you feel their immediacy and experience the kaleidoscope almost as a participant. As he weaves his engaging tales, you will meet Senator Robert Kennedy, Actresses Julie Harris and Colleen Dewhurst, Lyricists Alan Jay Lerner, and Sheldon Harnick, Tom Snyder, and a whole cast of colorful personalities who are presented through the prism of Sonny Fox’s cavalcade that is a history of TV: in fact a history of the 20th century as it will never be taught in schools.
