Contract signed "Anna Sosenko" for Sosenko Productions and "Alec Templeton". With ghost of notations in unknown hand just above middle fold. 1 page, 8½x13. March 27, 1946. Templeton and Sosenko signed this in order to have Templeton appear on the April 17, 1946 episode of The Penguin Room, produced by Sosenko Productions, Inc. at NBC's New York studios. Templeton was to perform Springtime in Vienna by Stella Unger during this show. In return, he was to receive $1,000 for his appearance on The Penguin Room. A business manager and producer in an industry dominated by men, SOSENKO (1909-2000, born in New York City) produced the hit radio talk show The Raleigh Room, sponsored by Raleigh cigarettes and hosted by the entertainer Hildegarde. The show's theme song, Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup, was written by Sosenko who was also Hildegarde's manager. (The song was later made famous by Nat King Cole) Sosenko put her vast knowledge of theatre and music to work, conceiving and producing star-studded musical evenings that honored the greats of the theatre. A congenial, outspoken and intense woman, Anna Sosenko probably knew more of the great stars of the theatre of the last 60 years than anyone. Pianist and composer TEMPLETON (1909-1963, born near Cardiff, Wales, England) was perhaps best known for his work, Bach Goes to Town, and other parodies of the classics, although he also wrote serious compositions. A popular radio performer, Templeton also hosted a 1955 TV series It's Alec Templeton Time and was also a frequent guest with symphony orchestras, especially for fund-raising events. Lightly toned and creased. Tear on left edge. Folded three times and unfolded. Tears along folds on left edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
