RADIO SHOW’S DEBUT ON THIS DAY IN 1956

FORT-LARAMIE-case-1

Fort Laramie was a radio Western series that aired Sunday afternoons at 
5:30pm (ET) on CBS from January 22 to October 28, 1956. Once a week
the cast and crew gathered at CBS Studio One in Hollywood to tape the
show. In 1956 this was the last radio production studio in use in California.

Produced and directed by Norman Macdonnell, the Western drama depicted
life at old Fort Laramie during the 19th Century. The 41 episodes starred
Raymond Burr as Lee Quince, captain of the cavalry. One year later, Burr
became a television star as Perry Mason.

RECORD SETTING ALBUM ON THIS DAY IN 1984

 victory the jacksons

Epic Records set a record as two million copies of the Jacksons’ "Victory"
were shipped to stores. It was the first time that such a large initial shipment had been made. On the first release of the record (above) there was a white dove on Randy’s shoulder (third from left). On later issues the bird was removed.
It was the only album to include all six Jackson brothers together
as an official group; also, it was the last album entirely recorded with lead singer
Michael Jackson.
