KOVACS ON MUSIC A FINAL CENTENARY TRIBUTE TO TV’S ORIGINAL GENIUSPRESENTED BY BEN MODEL & SETH B. WINNER
The New York Chapter of the Association of Recorded Sound Collections January 2020 meeting
2019 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of TV’s only true genius, Ernie Kovacs. Join co-hosts Seth B. Winner and Ben Model as they present a wide array of material, including some of the highlights from the commercials Kovacs created for Dutch Masters Cigars to parts of the now famous “Silent Show,” which aired in 1957, and “Kovacs on Music” which aired in 1959.
In the last week of Kovacs’ 100th anniversary year (Kovacs was born January 23, 1919), help us celebrate TV’S ORIGINAL GENIUS!
