Besides being in the 1955 play The Wayward Saint, BETTY LUSTER appeared on two television shows in the early 1950's.

Her first TV job was on the CBS show Sing It Again (1950-51), which was originally a radio program. It was a game show in which contestants tried to identify a song from the first few notes and was obviously a precursor to the similar game show Name That Tune. Betty was probably the singer on that program.

Her second was on the NBC show Seven at Eleven, which was only on the air for one month in 1951. The three singers were Betty, Denise Lor, and Jack Stanton. The rest of the cast included Jerry Luster (her husband?), host George DeWitt, comic Sid Gould, and bandleader Milton DeLugg (321-Santa Claus Conquers the Martians).
