Truth or Consequences

On Saturday, March 23, 1940, the long-running game show hosted by Ralph Edwards, Truth or Consequences, made its debut on NBC radio.  The town of Hot Springs, New Mexico, was renamed Truth or Consequences after the game show in 1950, when Ralph Edwards announced that he would host the program from the first town so renamed.  Edwards himself continued to make appearances at the town’s annual fiesta every May until his death.  Below: the TV version of the show.
