Canada's longest running prime-time musical variety show
10 March 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Filmed on a set built to resemble a traditional English pub, this series featured traditional British music-hall style entertainment, and attracted a veritable Who's Who of famous guest performers, including Vera Lynn, Max Bygraves and Barbara Windsor, plus local ex-pats and regular guests such as Scottish comedian Billy Meek, and Pearly Queen Anita Scott.

The show was rounded off by the Roland & Romaine dance troupe, and a house band featuring The Carlton Showband, and headed by Musical Director Ken Stanley (who later became the co-host of Ray Sonin's infamous Calling All Britons radio show, along with Ray's widow, June Sonin).


Here's a partial list of additional guest artists, although I have no dates:

Ann Shelton, Billy Dainty, Mike and Bernie, Chic Murray, Joy Shelton, Andy Stewart, Reg Dixon, Diana Dors, Cardew Robinson, Richard Hearne (Mr. Pastry), Dickie Valentine, Tommy Trinder, Hattie Hacques, Tessie O'Shea, Lonnie Donegan
