PICK OF THE DAY

A booming career

Sadly, we never appeared on WBZ-TV’s “Boomtown,” but we watched it and still remember the theme song written in 1956 by host Rex Trailer: “Howdy there, folks, we’re glad to see you in Boom, Boom, Boomtown! There’s a lot of folks who’d like to greet you in Boom, Boom, Boomtown!” Trailer died in January, and the legendary TV star and Emerson College faculty member will be remembered at the Rex Trailer Tribute. Participants include “Boomtown” cast members Uncle Sam Donato and Denver Dave Rich who will join “Sgt. Billy” on stage
to perform the Boomtown theme song.  4-6 p.m. Free (RSVP recommended
at rsvpevents@emerson.edu). Cutler Majestic Theatre, 219 Tremont St., Boston. www.emerson.edu
