Out here (the West Coast), CBS studio scheduling dept has kept a very accurate record of
what shows were taped/broadcast from what stages.  (see attachment)
Does such a thing exist for the New York studios?
The files out here go back to 1955.
Today I had a call from a writer needing the information on what studio the
Revlon Revue came from in 1960 and this is one I had never determined.
My best guess was CBS Studio 52, where a lot of the variety shows, other
than the big ones (Ed Sullivan) came from.  By 1960, CBS was getting rid of some
of the theater studios (like the Maxine Elliott aka studio 51 and the Mansfield
aka studio 59)
