Andy Williams, who died Tuesday at age 84 after a yearlong battle with bladder cancer, wasn't just a popular singer. His TV career, which was at its peak during the 1960s, brought him Emmy awards and allowed him to showcase many talents that would grow in fame throughout the decade.
"The Andy Williams Show" ran on CBS and NBC between 1959 and 1971 and went from a weekly variety show to a series of specials, and then back to a variety show. Williams laid-back style proved a favorite with audiences and voting members of the TV academy and it earned three Emmys for variety program. Williams himself received two Emmy nominations.
One of the earliest regular guests on the show who went on to arguably the greatest fame were the Osmonds. The brother singing group from Ogden, Utah, first appeared on Williams' show in 1962 and returned several times, eventually adding little brother Donny to the group.
Here's a clip from one of the Osmonds' earliest appearances, with, from left, Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay performing "Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas."
