The Ford Show

The Ford Show

The Ford Show was one of the first musical-variety programs. Ernie Ford was the main draw for the series. He was multi-talented as a singer and comedian but his main attraction at the time was he appeal as a star who was just like one of the common folk. Ford would often tell stories that the audience could identify with by referring to his meager upbringing in Bristol, Tennessee. His down home talk such as "Bless Your Pea-Pickin Hearts" also endeared him to his audiences. The Ford Show nearly always included a well-known guest star of the day who would do a comedy skit with Ernie Ford.
