Calendar* Clarification: the Platters' Television Debut

Many websites claim that when the Platters appeared on Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey's Stage Show April 7, 1956 on CBS that it was their national television debut.  This is not true.  The famous group first appeared on The Perry Como Show on February 11, 1956 on NBC-TV, as you can see in the above video clip.  This is also confirmed by as well as the book Perry Como:  A Biography and Complete Career Record by  Malcolm Macfarlane and Ken Crossland.
