Observing Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday and other things at the Paley Center

As I stated before in this journal I like to go to the Paley Center for Media a few times a year.  We decided to go today not realizing that it is Lucille Ball's 100th birthday.  The center showed videos of Lucille's appearances on the Carol Burnett Show, Dinah Shore Show, and Donnie & Marie among others.  There was also a retrospective of Judy Garland's career on television.  We saw her appearances with Phil Silvers and Robert Goulet in the early 1960s.  There was also a showing of Elvis Presley's early appearances on TV in 1956 on Stage Show hosted by Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey, the Milton Berle Show, and Steve Allen Show.

Finally in the Steven Spielberg Gallery on the ground floor there was a summer festival of rock music.  We saw parts of shows by the Rolling Stones and Simon & Garfunkel.  We certainly saw a lot in 4 1/2 hours.
