“Big City USA"
Guest: Bobby Burgess

Original Air Date:  Jan. 9, 1982

Favorite songs that represent cities, states, and other geographical sites are featured in “Big City, USA.” Spotlighting the East Coast are Lawrence and the Band as they swing to “Manhattan.” Bobby and Elaine keep those “City Lights” a glow and Jimmy Roberts sings “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” Kathie Sullivan takes you “Kansas City” way and the Band and Singers close the Show in that windy city of “Chicago.”
