The Cowsills Get Special In November
September 14, 1968
Cumberland, Maryland

The Cowsills, the celebrated, popular singing family will star in their own special on NBC Saturday, November 23, at 8:30 p.m. The Cowsills will sing songs from their large repertoire of hit tunes and folk ballads.

Less than a year ago, the Cowsills were little known outside of their hometown - Newport, R.I. They were discovered by Leonard Stogel, their current manager, and made their network television debut on the Ed Sullivan show, October 27, 1967.

Last February, the clan was featured in a two-hour "special" on NBC-TV's "Today" show. Since then they have toured the world, recorded several best-selling albums, including their latest, "Captain Sad and His Ship of Fools."

Bud Cowsill, a 20-year Navy man now retired, organized the group which features his wife and six of their seven children.
