SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Well we have now finished our long new year’s holiday, for many it started Monday night and went through today with football, parties, a few days off work.

A forgotten but amazing observance of the new year took place over 60 years ago near Salt Lake City. The nation started the year with an amazing and live TV performance of spectacular music coming from the Utah mountains.

Our Craig Wirth found an old rare and frayed filmed copy of the event. It is Wirth Watching tonight.
