4 Girls 4 ~ 1978

Starring: Rosemary Clooney, Margaret Whiting, Rose Marie, Helen O’Connell.

“For 12 years, 4 Girls 4 was an unprecedented sensation across the U.S. It was one of the most surprising and unconventional show business successes of the1970s and 80s.

At a time when the biggest touring acts in the country were youth-driven pop acts like the Eagles, Abba and the Bee Gees, three middle aged female singers -- none of whom had had a chart hit in decades -- joined forces with the fourth-billed star of a long-cancelled TV sitcom to create what can only be described as a genuine show business phenomenon.

It was called 4 Girls 4 , and when it first appeared on the scene in 1977, it brought staggering new success to a quartet of show business veterans who were far from their commercial peak, and launched a completely new genre of entertainment that thrives to this day: “The Oldies Nostalgia Tour”. Songs include “4 Girls 4”, “Together Wherever We Go”, “As Time Goes By”, “I’m Glad I’m Not Young Anymore”, “My Blue Heaven”, “Tenderly”, “Hey There”, “Come On-a My House”, and others. Filmed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver for TV.

In 1983 Rosemary Clooney left the show, and it continued on as “ 3 Girls 3 ”, and then later added other revolving “girls” to get back to 4. The others who appeared in the show at various times were Kaye Ballard, Kay Starr, Martha Raye, and Barbara McNair. About 50 minutes.
