HOUSEWIVES CALL THE TUNE

ABC
15th September 1956 - 6th April 1957

This might have been ITV's first Saturday morning hit, a curious show from our point of new nowadays, but presenter Joan Edwards does the housework to the tunes of the day as requested by viewers. "A lively miscellany from salads to sambas and foxtrots to fishing" as TV Times put it, also "Joan Edwards enlivens her Saturday morning chores by playing the records chosen by viewers".

It ran from 9 until 10 am before the closedown as appeared to be networked across ITV regions.
