Della was the first prime time talk show in the USA to have an African-American host, singer/actress Della Reese. The program ran for 297 episodes in the 1969 – 1970 season.
Ray Charles, together with The Raelettes and Billy Preston was a guest on the show that was aired on 17(?) October 1969. I found the ad below in the  Herald Statesman(Yonkers, NY).
