Without going into details, a box of tapes turned up in my office today and while going through them, I found what seems to be a pilot for a (Game show?) called \"Words About Music\".  I only scanned the show quickly but it seemed a bit like Fred Allen's  \"Judge For Yourself\".  A panel of stars listened to songs and tried to pick the next hit.

It was apparently an NBC Pilot.  The host was Frank DeVol.  Sammy Cahn was a guest whose songs were sung and the panel was Oscar Levant, Natalie Wood, Jackie Cooper and Elsa Lanchester.  It was taped around 1955 because they mention Natalie Wood as just having appeared in \"Rebel Without A Cause\".

Anyone know anything about it or seen it?

 No, but I imagine you just became REAL POPULAR among the tape-trading community... :)

Frank DeVol?  Happy Kyne of \"Fernwood 2Night?\"  A game show host?  That I'd have to see to believe.

Hmmm...interesting.  Was the show sponsored by Bun & Run, by chance?
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.
