Judy Garland's Birthday

In honor of Judy Garland's Birthday, I present you with three classic interviews that you may or may not have seen:

1.  First up, Judy on the Jack Paar show taped on December 2, 1962 (for broadcast on December 7, 1962) .  This is considered by many to be Judy Garland's finest hour on television.

2.  Next is her interview with Barbara Walters from The Today Show. May 1967:

3.  And last, Judy Garland on the Tonight Show June 24, 1968 (I ❤️ this one because she was promoting her appearance at the Garden State Arts Center (before I was born) which is in the town next to where I grew up, and I saw so many concerts there..back in the day):

Judy Garland (June 10, 1922 – June 22, 1969) An actress, singer, and icon. Garland’s big screen career included such classics as The Wizard of Oz (1939), Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), and A Star is Born (1954).  Her television specials in 1955 and 1962 attracted the largest audiences for any entertainment programs in CBS-TV network history to those dates. Her 1963-64 weekly series has passed into legend as one of the highlights of musical variety video programming.  Fifteen of her recorded singles “charted” between 1939-1954, including “Over the Rainbow,” “The Trolley Song,” and “The Man That Got Away.” Her 1961 “live” two-album set, JUDY AT CARNEGIE HALL, won an unprecedented five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best Female Vocal Performance. It was the fastest-selling album of its time, on the charts for ninety-five weeks, and # 1 for thirteen of those. From vinyl to tape to compact disc, it has never been out of print. Additionally, Garland’s original 1939 recording of “Rainbow” and the CARNEGIE set were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1981 and 1998 respectively.

Happy birthday Judy Garland...we ❤️you!!!
