Tuesday, Dec. 31, 1974 Philadelphia Inquirer 3-C TV I RADIO LISTINGS It's Clark Vs. Lombardo at Midnight By HARRY HARRIS Inquirer TV Writer First of Two Articles If you're the kind of Derson who does his New Year's Eve stroke-of-midnight celebrating in front of a TV set, you'll be offered a 90-minute choice of music styles for the third straight year tonight. On CBS (Channel 10), it will be Guy Lombardo and the "shmaltzy" sound of the Royal Canadians, abetted by guest chanteuse Helen O'Con-nell, live from the Grand Ballroom of New York's Waldorf-Astoria. On ABC (Channel 6), it will be Dick Clark and the rock-pop-jazz-country concoctions of Chicago, the Beach Boys, the Doobie Brothers, Olivia Newton-John and electronic pianist Herbie Hancock, on tape from Los Angeles and live from Miami Beach's Deauville. Lombardo & Co., playing "Auld Lang Syne" on the air for the 45th consecutive new year, will give way at countdown time for newscaster Ben Grauer's coverage of 1975's Times Square reception. "Chicago's New Year's Rockin' Eve "75" will switch at midnight to host Clark at the Deauville, during a performance of his "Good 01' Rock 'n' Roll" stage show.

Group Not City He's amused by TV Guide's reluctance to use the special's title in a highlight box. Instead, the magazine is identifying the program as "New Year's Eve with the rock group Chicago and com pany. "They think that "Chicago's New Year's Rockin Eve' is confusing, but people who think 'Chicago' means the city will be ( watching Guy Lombardo." However, he concedes, even those who knowingly tune in the rock group may be in for brief puzzlement. That's because the "Chicago" show is being done in the style of the '30s, in MGM's largest studio with potted palms and betuxed participants plus film clip inserts of Judy Garland singing 'Dear Mr. Gable' and of Busby Berkeley dancers doing a "52nd Street" number. "If any of Guy's fans turn to the wrong channel," Clark says, "they may think, 'What's happened? Why all these freaky people?' " He's hoping that a Clark-hosted, rock-flavored hello to the new year will become an annual TV custom. Music Awards "It's an experiment that's happened to work," he says, "but I don't know if it will go on. "Two years ago we did a Rockin' Eve on NBC with Three Dog Night, Helen Reddy, Blood Sweat and Tears, Al Green and Billy Preston against Lombardo on CBS and, at midnight, Lawrence Welk on ABC. "Last year, again on NBC, with George Carlin, Linda Ronstadt, Tower of Power and Trie Pointers, we were outpointed by ABC's rerun of our own 20th anniversary 'American Bandstand show, which cut into the same audience." Clark's always looking for air fare with a life expectancy of "10 to 12 years or more." It was with such longevity in mind that he inaugurated "The American Music Awards," which salutes top pop performers like the annual "Grammy Awards" telecast, but picks its winners through some 40,000 ballots mailed to members of the general public, rather than through polling of members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. ABC's second "American Music Awards" program, with Roy Clark, Helen Reddy and Sly Stone, is slated for Feb, 18. Clark's hoping it will become as much a TV fixture as the annual presentations of Oscars, Emmys and Tonys. It's possible. After all, he points out, " 'American Bandstand' has been continuing for 23 years on a 13-week commitment." 1 TUESDAY HIGHLIGHTS 8:00 P.M. 0Q3 ORANGE BOWL PARADE "Fantasies and Fables" is this year's theme; Joe Garagiola and Jo An Pflug are the cohosts; Linda Metz, newly-crowned queen, reigns over the parade which features marching bands from 16 states and Canada.
