Ray Charles (Not) On Ernie Ford Special (1967)?

'67 TV Ford? NMNever happened

Country and gospel singer Tennessee Ernie Ford presented several TV shows during his career. The TV page of the newspaper the Watertown Daily Times from 1 December 1967 announces the broadcast of the Ernie Ford Special on Sunday, 3 December 1967, on Channel 5 (Syracuse), with “guests Lainie Kazan and Ray Charles, jazz musician”.
Other sources, however, describe a completely different line-up for this show, featuring Andy Griffith, Danny Thomas, The Dillards, Goldie Hawn, and – above all – Diana Ross and the Supremes.

Who knows more?
