The Sonny Kendis Show

The Sonny Kendis Show was an early United States television series which aired on CBS Television from 18 April 1949 to circa 3 January 1950. Unusually, the series aired in a 10-minute time slot, at 7:45pm to 7:55pm ET on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, preceded by the 15-minute CBS Television News, and followed by the 5-minute Ruthie on the Telephone.

The show featured pianist and big band leader Sonny Kendis (1911-1974) and vocalist Gigi Durston (born October 8, 1927). On Wednesdays at 7:45pm ET, the 15-minute musical show Earl Wrightson at Home aired on CBS.


Billboard reviewed the series in its 3 September 1949 issue, giving the series a positive review, saying that "Sonny Kendis has the flashy kind of eye-catching piano playing style which, no doubt, will appeal to many viewers" and that "the production and direction were very good."
