Pianist and arranger Denny Vaughan and singer Joan Fairfax had appeared in a popular summer series in l954, and its success prompted the launch of The Denny Vaughan Show in the fall. 

Produced by Lloyd Brydon, the program had more glitz. Added were major production numbers; comics imported from the U.S.A.; the Don Wright Singers, a ten voice chorus; and by dancers Glenna Jones, Don Hewitt, Mitch Nutick, and Charles Calmers. Two groups, the Diamonds and the Add-Fours, alternated as the featured vocal quartet. The show also featured an act from French Canada every week.

Aired weekly from June 1954 to June 1957; 30 minute music/variety program.
