Storyline

"The All-Night Show" was North America's first regular late-night marathon, running live nightly from after sign-off until 6:00 AM. The format was a montage of old films, clips, episodics, guest appearances and special treats served up by your host Chuck the Security Guard and his cameraman buddies Ryerson Dupont and P.B. Leonard, all of whom had supposedly thrown the station back on-air in the wee hours when management was away. Written by Michael Lennick <michael@foolishearthling.com>

Hello: I worked on the All-Night Show way back as the Assistant Director (in Master Control) and Production Assistant. I have formed a group on Facebook for friends and fans to discuss The All-Night Show. The group is called "The All-Night Show" and can be easily found by doing a search within Facebook. I have already recruited both All-Night Show Directors aka Michael Lennick and Errol Bruce-Knapp to join me. I'm working on getting Jeff Silverman, Executive Producer to join us. If I can find everyone's emails who worked on the show (ie Chas Lawther), I'll invite all of them too. If you know of any of these, please contact me. If you would like to join our discussion, that would be great. We will discuss working on the show and can also discuss watching the show. It's an open concept for now...we can see what happens. So do you know where I can reach (to name a few): Chas Lawther, J-P Edwards, Robert Meckler, Lee Wilson, Megan Ross, Eva Vago, Luce Gauthier, the list goes on and on and on.... Thanks, Claire Lemieux-Lamarche
