Aired Thursday nights during the summer of 1981.

This was a half hour musical series produced in St. John’s,
Newfoundland. It featured the musical talent of the Wonderful Grand
Band, led by Ron Hynes. The band played Celtic tunes, a la Jethro Tull.
Comedians Greg Malone and Tommy Sexton, who later starred in Codco,
made regular appearances. The band often appeared in sketches geared to
poke fun at the CBC or the economic life of the province.

The producer was Jack Kellum and the director Wayne Guzzwell.
