Broadcast Medium: Television
Hosted by Rex Hagon and Susan Conway from The Forest Rangers.
A general interest program for ten to fourteen year olds. Although the program was eclectic, shows usually concentrated on a specific theme, such as magic (with guest Doug Henning) or love or changing fashions. Hagon, Conway, fellow host Pat Rose, and occasional visitors Lynne Griffin and Jeff Cohen explored such topics through in-studio interviews and filmed reports. Drop-In also included puppet performances by Nina Keogh, comic sketches, called the Drop-In Little Theatre, and music by semi-regular Ron Nigrini’s Gentle Rock Band, and by guest bands, such as Copper Penny, Milestone, the System, Yours Truly, and the Perth County Conspiracy.
The producers of Drop-In were Bob Gibbons (l970-72) and Hedley Read (l972- 74); the executive producers were Ray Hazzan (l970-73) and Don Elder (l973- 74).
Aired weekly from September 1970 to June 1974.
