Before BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel, Jubilee Showcase was celebrated as the longest running gospel music program on television. From 1963 to 1984, gospel greats of the day appeared on the weekly 30-minute show, produced and hosted by Sid Ordower.
A documentary about Jubilee Showcase is presently in the works, and Ordower’s son, Steve–who is entrusted with the archive of content–invites you to visit jubileeshowcase.launchrock.com. Once there, sign up with your email to get free and exclusive access to rare footage of gospel performances.
