Chorus, Gentlemen

Network: CBC Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1965 to 1967

Broadcast Medium: Television

Debuted in July of 1965 as a summer series airing Sunday evenings. Aired Friday evenings in the summer of 1966 and picked up in 1967 airing from January to April on Sunday afternoons.

A successor to Chorus Anyone, this re-named and re-vamped musical program had a longer run on the network. Produced in Vancouver, this sing-a-long program featured a male chorus led by Bobby Reid [1965] and Brian Gibson [1966-1967]. Popular music was favoured over more traditional songs with a healthy dose of nostalgia tossed in for good measure. Regular guests included Bud Henderson and ragtime piano-player Ralph Grierson.
