Walt Disney Productions (later The Walt Disney Company) has produced an
anthology television series under several different titles since 1954.

The original version of the series premiered on ABC on Wednesday, October
27, 1954. The show was broadcast weekly on one of the Big Three television
networks
until 1990, a 36-year span with only a two-year hiatus from 1984 until
1985. The series was broadcast on Sunday for 25 of those years. From 1991
until 1997, the series aired infrequently and had only two hosts, Walt Disney
and Disney Chairman Michael Eisner. It is the second longest running prime-
time program
on American television, behind rival film anthology, the Hallmark
Hall of Fame
.

RADIO HISTORY MADE ON THIS DAY IN 1921

Image result for first religious radio broadcast of kdka

On this day, two months to the day after its first broadcast, KDKA aired the
first religious service in the history of radio. It was undertaken by Westinghouse
to test its ability to do a remote broadcast far from a radio studio. Pittsburgh’s
Calvary Episcopal Church was chosen because one of the Westinghouse
engineers happened to be a member of the choir and made the arrangements.

The junior pastor, Rev. Lewis B. Whittemore, preached because the senior pastor
was leery of the new medium. The technicians (one a Jew, one Catholic) were
outfitted with choir robes in order to keep them from distracting the congregation.
