The Ricky Nelson Story
A handsome teen idol who had a considerable amount of talent to complement his blue-eyed good looks, Ricky Nelson practically grew up in the nation’s living rooms each week on “The Adventures Of Ozzie & Harriet”. He would rival Elvis Presley, and become a self-contained rock and roller in his own right. Boasting an impressive thirty-four songs in the Top 40! Many teenagers tuned into the show because of him, and his performances – a harbinger of the kind of impact MTV would have decades later by bringing popular music to TV.
