Most of the singers who appeared on this series had currently popular hit songs, with the emphasis on young performers on the way up. In addition serving as host, Buddy Bregman accompanied on piano those who performed live. However, the majority lip-synched to their hit records. Amoung those who appeared were Bobby Darin, Ritchie Valens, The Platters, the Teddy Bears and Annette Funicello, along with an established, older star each week (Milton Berle, Jerry Lewis, etc.) who would chat and perhaps perform. At the end of each show, Buddy announced the top 5 records of the week.
