Ray Charles In Thank You Rock ‘N Roll (1978)

'78 TV Rock

Thank You Rock ‘N Roll was a 1 hour television show with Rita Coolidge, The Carpenters, Johnny Mathis, The Bee Gees and Ray Charles. It was promoted as a “joint effort by top singing groups of today and rock stars of the past”.
It probably was a syndicated format – I’ve found broadcast dates for 14 March and 1 April 1978. The clip below, with The Carpenters, as good as sure comes from this same program. I don’t know if the performance by Ray still exists.
