Biographical or historical data
First broadcast on WRVA in 1948, the Joan Brooks Show was a musical variety program, hosted by Sewell Brown and starring John Connelly, Wilson Angel, The Hospitality House Orchestra and the hostess, "the girl with the voice you won't forget", Joan Brooks. Each program's musical performances were punctuated with witty banter between Joan Brooks and the other performers. The House of Sauer, better known as C.F. Sauer Co., maker of Dukes mayonnaise, Sauer's Vanilla and other products, sponsored the program, the name of which was changed to "The Sauer Hour" when the program moved to WRNL-AM in 1949. This second version of the program was broadcast in several states until it ended in 1951.
