The Original Amateur Hour

Today in 1948, Ted Mack came to TV as the Original Amateur Hour, and had a 22 year run. The original Original Amateur Hour on radio was hosted by Major Bowes. Edward Bowes or Major as he insisted everyone call him, started a show on the radio that was called the Major Bowes and his Capitol Family, and was a great hit. Ted Mack was was the Majors talent coordinator, and took over the hosting duties after the Major died.
