Johnny O'Keefe's Six O'Clock Rock

Six O'Clock Rock showed on ABC from 28 February 1959 to 1962 and was broadcast at 6PM on Saturday evenings.
Many entertainers got their first big exposure on 6 O'Clock Rock and these included Lonnie Lee, Barry Stanton and Warren Williams. The show was produced by Peter Page.
The show originally contained a mixture of Rock and Roll and Jazz, but O'Keefe wanted the show to be all Rock and Roll, so the Jazz content dwindled for a time.
O'Keefe left the show in 1961 to move to ATN-7 to compère the more elaborately produced Johnny O'Keefe Show.
