Multi-talented, multimedia star Jaye P. Morgan was a household name as a pop vocalist years before a television sat unblinking in every living room. Despite the fact that Jaye P. contributed to the dignified dawning of the cathode age, it is thanks to vulgar exploitation that she is fondly recalled by adoring masses today. The warbling wonder had her first top-ten hit way back in 1951 with "Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries." As the 1950s matured, Morgan acted like an adult on Eddie Fisher's Coke Time, The Perry Como Show, Toast of the Town, and her very own Jaye P. Morgan Show, all of which are mere footnotes in broadcast history. Mention The Gong Show, a 1970s bastion of crass mockery disguised as a talent contest for day-pass mental patients, however, and the eternally vibrant image of Gong panelist Jaye P. Morgan springs to life. Morgan's Gong legacy will endure long after the final episode of Masterpiece Theater has dissolved in the heaping landfill of discarded popular culture.
