Teresa fronts the Dixieland jazz group The Firehouse Five. Also included are performances by Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Cab Calloway, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, and others. The Snader Telescriptions were television's very first "music videos," produced from around 1950 until 1953/1954. The Snader Telescriptions, along with other similar films, were used by Channel 6 in Philadelphia on a show called Bandstand well before it became an American institution.
