This NBC daytime game show featured a trio of players competing in a contest involving a board with 16 squares.
Each square had a clue to a word in the lyrics of a song to be sung on that day’s show. Contestants heard tunes one by one and could win money by matching a word in the song’s lyrics with the correct square.
Players went through four rounds, with money amounts increasing each round, and the high scorer tried to get three consecutive wins for a new car.
Wink Martindale, who had his own hit on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in 1959 (Deck of Cards), hosted the affair, with five vocalists – Peggy Connelly, Katie Grant, Pat Henderson, Don Miller and Bob Marlo – singing the tunes.
