The Gay Nineties Revue (musical variety, hosted by Joe Howard)

    (ABC Primetime, 1948 - 1949)

    [an extension of the radio show of the same name, hosted by
     the 80-year-old vaudeville veteran Joe Howard]


Theme: "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now"

    [although written in the decade following the 1890's, this
     was a familiar melody often sung by barbershop quartets;
     it was Joe Howard's signature song which he co-wrote with
     two other songwriters fifty years previously for a 1909
     musical revue called "The Prince of Tonight"; although
     his name was not on the original song, Harold Orlob's
     publisher successfully sued in 1948 to add his name to
     the song as a co-writer, but Orlob refused to accept 
     any subsequent royalties]
 
     Composers: music by Joseph E. ("Joe") Howard (ASCAP) and 
                Harold Orlob (ASCAP); with
