The MTVR is known for its great bashes and this was no exception.  With martini bars on two floors, a 6-piece band, and actors- like Sam Harris- singing Broadway and contemporary tunes, the place was rockin'.

Barbara Eden and Mrs. John H. Mitchell

Ann Beatts of 'Designing Women' fame was there, so was Marilyn King ('King Sisters' and 'Family').  Barbara Eden (remember 'I Dream of Jeannie'?) was there, too, looking lovely.

The Museum of Television and Radio is a nonprofit organization founded by William S.
