Re: “Does Anyone Remember This TV Show?

Jeanna mentioned coming out of the audience to perform. The audience of "Pride of the Southland" was composed of the performers and their family members; so each act "came up out of the audience" and went up the steps to get on the stage during the commercials between each act.

Re: “Does Anyone Remember This TV Show?

I sang on "Pride of the Southland" in the late '50s with my church's children's choir. We sang "Fairest Lord Jesus" and, I think, one other hymn. As I remember "Pride of the Southland," they featured a different town each Saturday morning. My best friend did a tap dance, but what other talent came from Sardis, MS, that day I don't remember. I think the sponsor was Purnell's Pride chicken, which I always thought was where "Pride" in the name came from.
