Tommy Dorsey Facts
Inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1989.

Frank Sinatra refused to be a part of his memorial show, saying, "I didn't like him. It would be inappropriate for me to appear on a memorial show." Buddy Rich refused to appear because Sinatra wouldn't appear.

The first variety show on which Elvis Presley appeared was "Stage Show" (1954), a summer replacement for "The Jackie Gleason Show" (1952), hosted by Dorsey and his brother Jimmy Dorsey. Jackie Gleason, the show's producer, later apologized for putting on "a porno act" and Ed Sullivan said he would never have anything like that on his show. Sullivan later changed his mind after Elvis made another appearance on a rival TV show.
