Liberace & his rings

On Ken P.D. Snydecast #114: Baby Driver the boys talk about Liberace:

Dana: What’s funny about Liberace is that there is no reason he ever should have been famous. He was so stiff-
Ken: (chuckles)
Dana: Alright, what are we in? Seventh grade? We will laugh about that later, when we get in seventh grade.
Ken: I say we take the podcast down to seventh grade. That way we get more listeners.
Dana: He basically has the world’s worst stage presence.
Ken: Yeah, but look at the rise. The rise of Liberace really happened- and again, I don’t mean the puns, In the 50s with TV. Anyone could be a star in the 50s.
Dana: Oh absolutely it did! There it worked perfect.
Ken: Because he was flamboyant, he had massive gestures that filled a TV screen.

As the podcast continued Dana talked about how Liberace would often show the audience his expensive rings.
Here is a video of Liberace showing the rings off:
