(Left to right) Frank Sinatra & Harry Harris

While most people would think of Broadcast Pioneers member Sid Mark with Frank Sinatra in Philadelphia, in this case, it's not true. At the time this picture was taken, Sid was just beginning to play his first Frank Sinatra programs on WHAT-FM (later WWDB). If it's not Sid Mark with ol' blue eyes, it would just have to be Broadcast Pioneers member Harry Harris who during that year was a TV columnist for TV Guide and then the Philadelphia Inquirer.

While Dinah Shore did have her own TV show in the early fifties, she was widely remembered for "The Dinah Shore Show" sponsored by Chevrolet which ran on NBC-TV (in color) from 1956 to 1963. It is from that era that the above photo comes from.
