Tommy Common’s It’s a Musical World

Network: CBC Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1975 to 1976

Aired Sunday afternoons from September 1975 to June 1976.
This 30 minute musical variety show was hosted by long-time singer and songwriter, Tommy Common. He was often a regular Country Hoedown performer, and occasionally had his own TV special. This show marked his return to television on a full time basis.
Common was backed by Sweet Magic, a vocal ensemble with Bob Barker, Andrew Mowatt, Janice Third, Janet Dougherty, Corrine Kopan, and Michel LaFleche.
The show was produced in CBC’s Vancouver studios, but it also took advantage of locations throughout British Columbia. Guests included Myrna Lorrie, Merrilee Rush, Debbie Lori Kaye, Marg Osburne, Gilliam Russell, Lonnie Donegan, and the Mercy Brothers. Ken Gibson produced the series.
