    Lloyd Thaxton was a local "freelance" announcer in Los Angeles in the late 1950s when, through a deal with a tv station manager, got his own weekday television show on KCOP, Lloyd Thaxton’s Record Shop.
    This program would lead to The Lloyd Thaxton Show, a live music entertainment show from Los Angeles in the vein of Dick Clark's Bandstand. Thaxton's show was a wacky hour of dancing high school teenagers, skits and comedy by Thaxton, and musical features by the top pop, rock, folk and country artists of the day.
    The show, which launched in 1964, would eventually go into national syndication and become the highest rated musical entertainment program in the U.S. for the next 8 years. Thaxton ventured into other shows and parts of the industry later on and would eventually end up winner of five Emmy Awards and 15 Emmy nominations.
