They had you babe.

And we had The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour on this day (1st Aug) in 1971.

The duo had stopped coming out with hit singles and stated to tell jokes and sing in nightclubs.

That's when the head of CBS programming in the US spotted them and gave them their own show.

For more of the best music from the decade - listen to Stray 70s
