There's a Tempest Brewing
In That Godfrey Teapot
By Harry MacArthur
Yesterday’s upheaval in Arthur
Godfrey’s sector of broadcasting
came as no surprise to the trade.
In radio-TV circles CBS has long
been considered sitting on a keg
of dynamite, a keg named God
frey. His various air enterprises
are responsible for an estimated
$7 million annually in CBS profits
and the network, naturally, likes
to keep him happy.
He gets away with things which
long ago would have consigned
a lesser entertainer to limbo.
There was. for instance, that re
cent storm when Godfrey can
celled “Talent Sco u t s’’ and
brought in his Wednesday night
crew to do the show. The spon
sor made noises of dissatisfaction
and threatened not to pay for a
show not ordered.
“Okay,” Godfrey is reported
to have replied, “if they feel that
way about it let’s not do ‘Talent
Scouts’ again next week, either.”
Nobody around CBS or any
other network ever talked that
way to a sponsor. But Godfrey
did and no thunderbolts struck
him. < Henry Morgan hasn’t
been able to get a proper televi
sion niche since a refrigerator
came apart in his hands while he
was trying to demonstrate it.
Somebody insisted that he pulled
it apart.)
** * *
The tempest in Godfrey’s tea
pot. in case you missed the news
yesterday, involves Singer Julius
La Rosa and Bandleader Archie
Bleyer. Sudde»ly, they don’t live
there any more. Mr. Bleyer pre
sumably will continue on "Talent
Scouts” until his contract runs
out, but then he will have to
turn in his “Little Godfrey”
badge along with Mr. La Rosa.
Naturally this created a great
deal of excitement in the broad
casting trade. Here was God
frey, the unpredictable, at it
again. There are, as usual, two
sides to this story and you can
take your pick. There probably
is some truth in each, which
means that the truth lies some
where between.
The La Rosa story is that the
announcement that he was leav
ing the Godfrey entourage came
as a great surprise. It left him,
he professed to an Associated
Press reporter, “a very confused
guy.”
“One minute I was singing and
and the next minute I heard
it was my swan song,” the
singer said. Remembering the
amenities of such occasions in
show busines, he hastened to
add, “I am and always will be
grateful to this man.” Godfrey,
who had heard him sing aboard
an aircraft carrier at Pensacola
(Fla), added the 23-year-old
singer to his radio-TV troupe
almost two years ago, on his dis
charge from the Navy.

| leader seem to have Incurred
| the master’s displeasure by out
side activities. A principal one
of these would be Bleyer’s re
cently-formed Cadence Records,
for which La Rosa has made
three discs which have enjoyed
good sales. Godfrey has no fin
ger in that pie and profits not
when La Rosa records with
; some one else.
A hint as to how Godfrey feels
about his private supporting cast
turned up in New York recently.
;We were sitting in the living
room of an entertainer who has
appeared on Godfrey shows and
who has been highly praised on
the air by the man who put
Leesbyrg (Va.) on the tourist
maps.
“What do you hear from God
frey?” we asked.
“Nothing,” he replied, with a
faint smile and a shrug. “I
didn't want to confine myself
to being one of the 'Little
Godfreys’ and that was that.’*
He changed the subject, but the
implication was clear. If you
stray just a bit from the paternal
fold, you’ve had it brother.
** * *
Then there is Godfrey’s side.
While the singer was being a
very confused guy, the Godfrey
office was saying his departure
was made according to plan. It
was in accordance with an
agreement between the two that
La Rosa was starting out on
his own.
According to a CBS spokes
man in New York, the singer, in
addition to those records made
with Bleyer, had already signed
a personal management contract
with General Artists Corp. and
had hired a press agent. He fully
intended, the CBS man says, to
depart the Godfrey fold. God
frey’s statement was to th»
point. Said he:
“I will never stand In the way
of any performer who wants to
better himself.”
The strong suspicion is that
La Rosa expected to start bet
tering himself on November 17,
when his contract with Godfrey
was due to expire. It undoubtedly
startled him when Godfrey
lowered the mike boom, as it
were, while he was on the air.
La Rosa, incidentally, still is
under contract to CBS and the
report is that he is set for a 52-
j week run on Ed Sullivan’s “Toast
lof the Town.” He will be free,-
too, to make out-of-town per
sonal appearances.
** * *
GOOD TRY There Is not
much that needs to be said of
Sunday’s “Omnibus” production
j of “King Lear” except that such
| TV experiments should be given
j every encouragement. Both the
Ford Foundation and CBS de
serve the highest of praise for
the try and for a highly impres
sive physical production. But
“King Lear” was more con
fusing than ever. And Sergt.
Wednesday, when you clear up
that “St. George and the Dragon
Net” case, book this Orson Wells
fellow on a 412.

VICTORY That dilemma
Po6ed by the return of Martin
Agronsky’s “At Issue” has been
solved easily by WMAL-TV.
The station management 6imply
moved "Commissioners’ Report”
back to 8:30 and Mr. Agronsky
will come through at 8 o’clock
tonight. His first “At Issue” vis
itor will be Supreme Court Jus
tice William O. Douglas. Also
on ABC-WMAL-TV tonight, this
at 8:15, will be the premiere of
“Through the Curtain.” The
aim of this one will be to give
viewers a summary of what
the Soviet citizen learns every
week from his newspaper and
magazine.
