Video of the WeekIt's a "twofer" this week. Carl Perkins performs "Blue Suede Shoes" live on the Perry Como show May 26, 1956.

For younger fans of the Sunday Oldies Jukebox, a short video intro by Perry Como. Born in nearby Canonsburg, PA in 1912, Como began work in a barber shop. His early musical career was as a singer with the Freddy Carlone and Ted Weems orchestras. He moved to a radio and recording career in 1943, recording exclusively for RCA Victor for 44 years. His TV career started in 1948, and by 1957, his Perry Como Show on NBC (1955-57) reached in the top 10 shows in the Nielsen ratings. He also hosted Kraft Music Hall and various specials. Como is known for his laid-back, almost "sleepy" on-screen personna.

Carl Perkins' (1932-1998) early gigs were in the late 1940's in Tennessee taverns, as well as country and farm radio programs. His Rock-a-Billy career took off in 1954 with Sam Phillips at Sun Record Studio in Memphis. Shortly thereafter, he was performing alongside Elvis Presley. In 1955, he released what is probably his best known hit, "Blue Suede Shoes. " In March 1956, Perkins was severely injured in a car accident. His career resumed in late April 1956, and he was still writing, touring, and performing into the early 1990's. Perkins was a member of the "Million Dollar Quartet" Sun recording session of December 4, 1956 with Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis. His autobiography, "Go, Cat, Go" was published in 1996.
