I remember watching two programs on Public Television (Channel 13, WNET) in 
New York City in the 1960's.  They were not documentaries but performances. 
I think the Standwells performed for an invited audience.  They were very 
inspiring.  I wonder if the Museum of Broadcasting in NYC has video 
recordings.

Mention is made of them in Bil Baird's book and also Eileen Blumenthal's.
